When you win the Super Bowl, there isn’t much to complain about as far as overall team performance is concerned. But here is a look back at what the Seahawks excelled at and aspects of their game that they will need to tighten up next season.
Defense wins championships, and the NFL has not seen a defense like Seattle’s in a long time.
What will matter most? The fact that Seattle has no players with Super Bowl experience, or their youth and speed and top-ranked defense? Or will the game be won by Denver’s suddenly stout rush defense and Peyton Manning’s blessed right arm?
Exonerated former Long Beach Poly football star Brian Banks will return to Pacific Northwest Wednesday where he will workout at the Seattle Seahawks minicamp.
Former Long Beach Polytechnic High School football star Brian Banks, who was exonerated of rape charges, is set to tryout Thursday for the Seattle Seahawks.
A former Long Beach Polytechnic High School football star exonerated of rape and kidnapping charges last week is set for his first NFL tryout.

Sources indicate that Palmer will be starting Sunday but Hue Jackson will not make it official till Friday.

Although Pete Carroll is an unabashed optimist who has attacked the Seahawks’ post-lockout challenges with his usual can-do attitude, even Seattle’s perpetually sunny coach realizes Tarvaris Jackson can’t possibly be ready to run his offense after just a handful of practices.
When you try to trade a player in the NFL, you carefully seek out potential general managers who might have interest and inquire discreetly about whether they’d like to chat. (I assume that’s what happens anyway.) What you don’t do is email every team in the league and let them know someone’s on the trading block.
Back in July, we noted that Oklahoma City Thunder guard Nate Robinson expressed interest in playing in the National Football League should the NBA’s lockout lead to a work stoppage. “I might go play football,” Robinson told SLAM magazine at the time. “Do something that nobody’s tried to do.”
Nothing like a lockout to artificially inflate Matt Leinart’s value.
The Seattle Seahawks have fired offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates after just one season during which Seattle’s offense ranked near the bottom of the NFL.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll says he’s hopeful linebacker Lofa Tatupu and wide receiver Ben Obomanu will be able to practice by the end of the week after suffering injuries against New Orleans.
