(Eds: Adds details, quotes. With AP Photos.) Eight sacks in a single half may even be more than Pete Carroll envisioned for his young, explosive defense.
But Monday night's dominating performance against the high-octane Green Bay Packers offense showed the Seattle Seahawks defense may be among the league's best.
Seattle's secondary was already thought to be one of the best units in the league with three starters making trips to the Pro Bowl last season. But the prospect of coupling a hard-hitting, ball-hawking secondary with a pass rush that could give offensive linemen fits is what Seattle's coaches knew was needed for the whole group to take another step forward.
A breakthrough performance from first-round pick Bruce Irvin on Monday night may have been the final piece necessary for the Seahawks defense to take that step.
Irvin sacked Aaron Rodgers twice in the first quarter and helped free up the rest of the Seahawks to tee off on the quarterback.
BEST OF MAXIM
Seahawks receiver Golden Tate says he was on the receiving end of some vitriolic commentary on social media due to his role in the controversial play on Monday night.

Earl Thomas is the small guy in a vary large Seattle Seahawks secondary.
At 5’10″, on stilts, and about 200 pounds, soaking wet wearing sponges, he looks out of place when the defense is in the huddle.
Don’t let that fool you. . .
Once the ball is snapped Earl uses his great instincts to get himself into possition to be around the football. Then, Thomas...
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer For now, the Seattle Seahawks are perfectly content to keep a lid on an offense being run by rookie quarterback Russell Wilson.
That's not meant to be a knock on Wilson, who has looked impressive at times and shaky at others in his three NFL starts.
But coach Pete Carroll is fearful of committing...

Through three weeks of play, the Seahawks have showcased an impressive number of top-flight abilities. One of the stoutest run defenses in the league? Check. An intimidating, physical secondary? Check. Great special teams play regardless of whether they’re on the giving or receiving end of things? Check. A pile-driver of a run game? You better believe that’s a...
Just how good are the Seattle Seahawks?
They were balling and harassing Aaron Rogers all night with Chris Clemons and Bruce Irvin obliterating the Packers offensive line, but their offense could not do jack for the majority of the game save a miraculous (and incorrect) game-winning Hail Mary.
