The Seattle Seahawks have had a successful offseason and while questions still surround Matt Flynn and the quarterback position here are three ways the Seahawks could knock off the San Francisco 49ers and win the NFC West. In the NFC West the San Francisco 49ers are looking stronger than ever. With all the offseason receivers the 49ers picked up, it looks as if Alex Smith and the 49ers defense will be unstoppable and will steam roll through the NFC West again. Or will they? If there is any team in the west that can unseat the 49ers it's the Seattle Seahawks. It wont be an easy task for Seattle. San Francisco is a force to be reckoned with, but it is not one to fear. There are three key things the Seahawks will have to do if they want to reclaim the NFC West throne.

  • IF Flynn has really picked a lot up from Aaron Rodgers, there would be a possibility for an upset there.... If QB was where they were lacking, well we all saw what Rodgers with the Packers offence was able to do last season, even with the D-line problems they were having. The game Flynn started in, he looked really good, if that is a showcase of what he can do, and wasn't just a good night, that's where the possibility would lie...
  • I dont see it not this year maybe next year after one more year of building
