Seahawks Remain Steady in NFL Power Rankings at Halfway Point
Even after an ugly Monday night win over St. Louis, the Seattle Seahawks maintained their top five position in most of the NFL weekly power rankings.
Pete Prisco at CBSsports.com keeps the Seahawks at #2:
They have to do more on offense. I know they are hurting on that side, but can they really expect Percy Harvin to fix it?
At FoxSports.com, former NFL head coach Brian Billick also has Seattle at #2:
The Seahawks need a quick boost to their offense after putting up just 139 yards on Monday night. Oh, hello, Percy Harvin.
The analysts at ESPN.com have the Seahawks holding at #4:
Only the Chiefs have a better turnover margin than the Seahawks (plus-9), whose reward for surviving the feisty Rams is hosting the winless Buccaneers.
Finally, Elliott Harrison at NFL.com, still has Seattle in the #4 slot:
Clutch defense won the evening in St. Louis. But the only reason the 7-1 Seahawks keep their ranking is the injury to Reggie Wayne. Until we see how the Colts fare without their best receiver, the 'Hawks will remain ahead of the only team that's beaten them this season.
Still shaking my head over the little use of Beast Mode on Monday night. Surprising.
