This is a team that has been on the decline ever since they got rid of guard Steve Hutchinson, and they will continue to be on the decline until they figure out their O line and D line woes. Bringing in softy Pete Carroll was a terrible move for the Hawks, and they will realize that Carroll's previous failures in the NFL will soon come to haunt him again. The Hawks had a pretty awful offseason (prior to the draft) which started when they decided to get rid of Darryl Tapp in favor of the lesser talented Chris Clemons. Next, they decided to let their best WR Nate Burleson get away from them. On top of that, they manufactured a high 2nd round pick into a 3rd string QB with Charlie Whitehurst (we won't talk about the ridiculous amount of money they threw at this unproven guy). The sad part about this move was that if they would have held onto their 2nd round pick, then they would have been able to draft the highly touted QB Jimmy Clausen. It wouldn't be a bad idea for the Hawks to just tank this season so that they could get hometown favorite, Jake Locker, in next year's draft.
Offense: Matt Hasselbeck is an injury waiting to happen, and he is one more injury away from retirement. Seattle loves to keep stacking wide receivers on their team instead of building an o line, finding a legitimate running back, or finding another Khalil Mack Authentic Jersey QB to mold for the future (sorry, Charlie Whitehurst isn't the guy). They made a solid 1st round pick in OT Russell Okung so that leaves them with 4 more holes to fill on the offensive line.
Defense: No pass rush and no stopping the run = a bad upcoming year for the Hawks' defense. The Hawks have Khalil Mack Women Jersey solid LBers with Tatupu, Hill, and Curry and they have a respectable secondary; however, their D line ranks among the worst in the NFL and teams are going to be able to run on Seattle all day.
If I were the Rams, I would have probably chosen the best DT to enter the NFL in years with Suh, but I'll be rooting for Sam Bradford to succeed in the NFL. You have to feel for Steven Jackson who continues to pump out 1,000 yard seasons despite playing for one http://www.nflbearsofficial.com/Nike-Lance-Briggs-Jersey.html of the worst teams.
Offense: All eyes will be on the first overall pick of the draft with QB Sam Bradford. It's going to be a tough year for Bradford without many playmakers aside from Steven Jackson and Donnie Avery on his side of the ball. If he doesn't get some protection from his offensive line, it could be an ugly year for Bradford and the Rams
Defense: There is actually some potential here for the Rams if Chris Long can continue to develop. Former OSU Buckeyes James Laurinaitis and Bobby Carpenter will work well together to form a nice linebacking corps. The secondary is not very impressive but the Rams will need to stop the run first if they want any success on defense this year.
