The Seahawks finished the first half of their schedule with a whimper on Sunday, falling to the Dallas Cowboys 23-13 in a game that was never really close in the second half.
Seattle is 2-6 at the halfway point, struggling through the first half of the season with a variety of injuries and a sputtering offense that doesn’t seem to be improving.
So it’s worth wondering what the expectations are as far as what the Seahawks final record will be, and who they can beat the rest of the way.
That’s Monday’s poll question.
What is your expectation for the Seahawks second half?
0-2 wins. This team isn't getting any better until next year.
3-5 wins. They play some winnable games the rest of the way.
More than 5. They're going to make a stunning turnaround.

There's not much question that Tarvaris Jackson will be Seattle's starting quarterback this week. The uncertainty is how long Jackson can last in the pocket.
DALLAS - There's not much question that Tarvaris Jackson will be Seattle's starting quarterback this week.
Coming off the best passing day of his career, Tarvaris Jackson was looking to be even better against the Dallas Cowboys.
His evaluation: ''I feel very sick about how I played today.''
Jackson threw interceptions on consecutive passes with the game on the line in the second half and another on his final throw, a fitting end to a 23-13 loss Sunday.
Greetings from Cowboys Stadium. There were no real surprises on today’s inactive list for Seattle. Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson (pectoral), as expected, is active for today’s game and appeared to throw the ball fine during pre-game workouts. Defensive tackle Alan Branch (knee/hip) also got the okay from Seattle’s trainers and is active today. But Cameron Morrah (toe/hip) did...
Another week, and another loss in a winnable game. The national medias take on this game was that Dallas was “too much” for the Seahawks, but I don’t buy it. These were surprisingly even teams. The only reason Dallas won was because Jackson threw 2 interceptions that were turned into 10 points. The Seahawks could have easily won this game.These game notes are just my “gut...
Another game, another loss. 3 in a row now. It’s getting tough to not just get completely frustrated with this team each week. I still believe that there’s plenty of talent on this team, but it’s just not showing at this point. Too much inexperience, and not enough coaching at this point to see results. Lets see what grades the Seahawks earned this week:Tarvaris Jackson: DJackson...
The Seahawks let another winnable game slip away yesterday, and with that loss all realistic hope for a return to the playoffs evaporated. The good things Seattle did (protecting Tarvaris Jackson, establishing a solid ground game, excellent red zone defense) were overwhelmed by a clattering brood of mistakes: Penalties, poor decision-making (particularly from T-Jack), and an offense...
Seattle and Dallas were tied 6-6 at halftime, but Dallas gets 10 points following Tarvaris Jackson interceptions in the second half to win the game.
Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens weekly NFL Love Em Hate Em Seahawks football blog. He recaps and rewinds the Seattle Seahawks vs. Dallas Cowboys Week 9 matchup. A 23-13 Cowboys win. After the way that Charlie Whitehurst played in the previous two games it is clear that the team is better off with Tarvaris Jackson behind center.
Q is steaming mad after the Seattle Seahawks vs. Dallas Cowboys Week 9 game. Here’s the recap. 5 reasons the Seahawks were beat down. Marshawn Lynch got no help. Tarvaris Jackson threw to the wrong team, and the Seahawks defense was clueless. Red Bryant, Brandon Mebane, Alan Branch had no answer for Cowboys DeMarco Murray.
Good morning. We’ll host our Monday Morning QB live chat at 1 p.m. today, followed by a report from Pete Carroll’s press conference by Dave Boling later this afternoon.
