Seattle Seahawks Primed for Super Bowl Run

Last season was a breakthrough for the Seattle Seahawks. They went all the way to the Super Bowl—still getting little respect. In the Super Bowl, they lost to the officials who had little help from a team called the Steelers. The gross display of “officiating” was well documented.

The backups in Seattle leave a little to be desired, but Hasselbeck has proven he’s a winner—even when his star RB gets knocked out of a playoff game.

In the offseason, he was rewarded with a lucrative contract that will keep him in Seattle through his prime. He’s another valuable player in this high-powered offense. He helps keep defenses honest, and he gives Matt Hasselbeck some help since defenses can’t sit back and play pass.
