Will the Seahawks return to Dominance?

Seattle Seahawks 2010

After a disappointing 5-11 season in 2009, the Seahawks are posed to improve after a productive offseason.

With new coach Pete Carroll taking the reins and new general manager John Schneider as his partner in crime, the Seahawks had maybe the best draft in the league according the NFL Network they rated A+.

With Water Jones Retiring the Seattle Seahawks took Russell Okung In the first round with the sixth pick, which is a mammoth offensive tackle who could start and make a difference.

Then, with the 14th pick of the draft, they drafted Earl Thomas, who by many experts was also a steal that late and could be ready to play in the NFL.

Seahawks only got better, drafting wide receiver (Maple Bar) Golden Tate; a speedy receiver who has excellent hands and can return kicks, too.

And the rest of their draft was considered above average picks, with names like Walter Thurmond, Kam Chancellor, and Jameson Konz, who could all make an immediate impact.

But still there are questions, going into the 2010 NFL season, the Seahawks having many Positions Battles.

The Following Questions I pose?

Can Matt Hasselbeck improve after a dismal 2009 season?

Can Aaron Curry become a superstar?

Can Pete Carroll lead the Seahawks back to the playoffs in a bad NFC West division?

Will the Seahawks Gain back the Dominance they had?

If these questions are answered “yes,” then just maybe the Seahawks could make the playoffs.

Unfortunately, some of these questions might be tough to answer “yes” to.

Hasselbeck is getting old and is becoming injured prone and does not have the ability to come back so easily.

Hasselbeck will have  a tough time with the offensive line, which was extremely disappointing last season, letting Hasselbeck get sacked 38 times and often he seemed like he was almost injured every game.

I think the Aaron Curry question could be a “yes,” especially if Lofa Tatupu can overcome his injury prone 2009 seasons and be a highly productive linebacker this season. Then Curry should be productive along with Leroy Hill. If this can happen, the defenses actually return to the dominant Seahawks Defensive team in 2007.

And, finally, one of the most interesting questions right now: Can former USC coach Pete Carroll lead the Seahawks back to dominance in the NFC West?

I think yes, as of right now, he is making strides, but it will be tough, especially for a college coach to come in and improve an NFL team like the Seahawks by three or four games.

If you look at history, college coaches don’t seem to translate well to the NFL, but given Pete Carroll NFL Career, hopefully Carroll can rewrite history.

But with all these questions, it could be tough for him in his first season as head coach to have a warm embrace from the NFL.

So, I ask after a very disappointing 5-11 season, can the Seahawks pull together this season and regain dominance in the NFC West?

Well given the impact of the offseason there is only two teams that a posed to have winning seasons the Seattle Seahawks and the Forty Niners.
