Are the Seahawks a decent QB away from being serious contenders?
QB: Charlie Whitehurst or Tarvaris Jackson (This, in and of itself, is pathetic)
RB: Marshawn Lynch
FB: Owen Schmidt, the best young FB in the game
WR: Sidney Rice/Mike Williams/Golden Tate
TE:Zach Miller/John Carlson
T: Russell Okung/ James Carpenter, whom both are young 1st rounders
G: Robert Gallery/Mike Gibson
C: Max Unger, a 1st rounder a few years ago
Their defense is very solid, as well.
Without a doubt, their biggest weakness is the QB spot. Do you think the Seahawks should go all out to get Andrew Luck via the draft next year, or do you think Seattle should stay put to see if Matt Barkley (Pete Carroll's mentee) or Landry Jones falls on their lap?
@Jake- Williams caught 65 balls last year? How does that constitute sucking? He may not be great, but he doesn't suck.
You're just bitter because Williams sucked it up in Detroit.
Fight on, USC.
Lions are good now? LMAOOOOOOOO
@Jake- I'm a bigot, Jake? Do you want me to tell everyone all those racial slurs you've spewed over the past couple of months? Do you even know what bigot means?

As a play-off contender, yes. The NFC West has a real rebuilding need and several teams are facing it this year. The Cardinals will likely field 10-11 new starters. Not going to say any team in the division should be a favorite to take the NFC crown. But, I see teams going out and getting personnel that can improve them.
I don't see TE as being as unimportant a position as some might. The Cardinals landed Todd Heap. He is the 2nd leading career receiver of the Ravens. That will help you out when the deep guys don't get loose. A good blocking TE can be very important for both the running and passing game.
I see an improved division with several teams that have a realistic chance of vying for that play-off spot. Getting a wild-card spot, too, may be some years down the road.
Unfortunately, for the Seahawls, the decent QBs have already been signed for this year. If Whitehurst and Jackson are both epic fails, go for that QB next year.Source(s): Edit: Orton really isn't likely to be available. "Jul 29 QB Kyle Orton was paid a $1.5 million roster bonus at 4 p.m. ET, reports Andrew Brandt of the National Football Post. It becomes less likely by the day that the Broncos will part with Orton. Coach John Fox said Orton is the Broncos' starting quarterback, ahead of second-year QB Tim Tebow."

I wouldn't be so happy with that team, Marshawn Lynch has been the least productive RB anywhere he's went. So even with a QB, he has no option to hand to a RB for a decent run. The only WRW of any value is Rice--the rest aren't proven yet.
The hawks aren't a decent QB away from being contenders, they need an above average QB to carry the load for that team.
Just remember they were barely contenders last year, getting in the playoffs with a 7-9 is pathetic.

They were a serious contender last year, but suffered a meltdown at some point, before coasting in to the playoffs because of their awful division. By serious contender, I mean playoff, not Super Bowl.
Getting Andrew Luck wouldn't hurt anyone, but the Seahawks would likely have to pull off a stunt like the Falcons to get him. He could make them a contender almost immediately.

Owen Schmidt plays for the Eagles now. But if they could get a trade between the Broncos for Kyle Orton they would be in great shape for playoffs.

Solid? The defense was ranked 25th in the NFL last year.
I don't see Marshawn Lynch being a 1,000 yd. RB in the NFL, and high-powered receivers have not helped the Seahawks before.
