Recent history has shown successful NFL teams have two things in common: a quarterback that refuses to turn the ball over and a defense that forces turnovers.  The past Super Bowl champion quarterbacks have featured Eli Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, Drew Brees and Peyton Manning, all future Hall of Famers.  The Baltimore Ravens, Houston Texans and New York Jets have been successful lately, even with a lack of quarterback star power, because of the tenacious, blue-collar defense that has become customary in the locker rooms.

The Seattle Seahawks proved last year its defense is solid, allowing 19.7 points per game and just over 320 yards per game, good for seventh and ninth best, respectively, in the NFL.  The offense hampered the team, however, and the Hawks placed 28th in yards per game and 22nd in passing yards per game.  Aside from Marshawn Lynch, who ran for 12 touchdowns by himself, the team’s offense was virtually non-existent.  Tarvaris Jackson is not the future of the franchise and, as much as we hate to believe, Charlie Whitehurst turned out to be nothing more than a failed experiment.
