Seahawks seize the top spot in power rankings

Carroll AP

There’s a new sheriff in town, and his name is the 12th Man.

The Seahawks have ascended to the top of the power rankings, and now the question is how long they’ll stay there.

They’ll keep the spot for at least a week, because the Seahawks have a bye.  Then comes the Saints and 49ers.

The top spot in the power rankings means nothing.  The top spot in the NFC playoff field means everything.  The Seahawks, if they win their next two games, most likely will have it.

Meanwhile, here’s the full list of power rankings.

    In before at least five guys make comments about PEDs (and by the way, zero failed tests thus far this season).

    Deserved? Maybe, maybe not. Could be Denver as well. And being favorites doesn’t mean much, really, given where favorites at this point in the season often end up: At home watching the Super Bowl in early February.

    But as a ‘Hawk fan, I will say this: I don’t think you’ve seen the best football this team has to offer at this point. Offensive line is healthy now, but needs to establish some more continuity. Harvin has yet to be fully unleashed.

    This is still largely the same offense that posted 58, 50, and 42 points in consecutive weeks last year, and really hasn’t hit full stride yet. It was actually about this time in the season last year where they really started to get rolling. If they can get back to that same level, good luck coming into Seattle in January and getting out with a win.

    I would have the Broncos #1 and the Seahawks #2. The Seahawks have had a few close calls. And the Broncos really haven’t except for their one loss.

    No chance the ‘Aints come to Seattle and beat the Seahawks. Nope, not happening.

    Russell Wilson is the second coming of Magic Johnson. He just plays football instead of basketball. Of his 18 passes thrown, 9 were caught by a different player. If you’re open, he finds you. If he has to manage a game, he manages it…if he has to win a game himself, he wins it. The kid is smart and gifted. Best quarterback the Seahawks have ever had.

    I think its fair for people when their opinion is the Broncos because they have blown teams out. But we have to take into a account strength of schedule Bronco’s and Chiefs had the easiest in NFL.

    Seattle is 10-1 and getting back 3 starting offensive lineman, one an All Pro C and another LT Pro Bowler. I don’t know many teams that win that many teams with back up o-lineman. Percy Harvin played his first game last week and just flat our looks faster and more explosive than anyone on the field.

    Russell Wilson vs Drew Bree’s next Monday night. This is going to be awesome! Go Hawks!

    After watching both the Hawks and the Broncos all season, Here’s the difference… When the Hawks get a substantial lead, they play their twos and threes. Denver, on the other hand, seems to make a conscious effort to run up the score as much as they possibly can… We get quality depth, The Broncos continue to attempt to convince everyone (including themselves ) that they are an unbeatable powerhouse…Not sayin’ which is wiser, just callin’ it as I see it.

    Denver is nothing without Manning, Seattle is based on Marshawn performing (but they can get by without him).
    If Manning gets pressured he gets rattled. Seattle has the defensive line that can put pressure on him and still cover man to man.
    That being said, Seattle will win at home, Denver will win at home, Seattle would win on a neutral field.

    I can’t get past how miserable Manning looked last year at home in a playoff game in Denver. That coupled with his history of bombing in big post season games makes it hard to see them in the end no matter how good they look in regular season. Sea may hit there stride and start blowing people out like last year though i don’t know if its a good thing to be ranked #1 this early. Maybe a couple weeks to early, we shall see.

    “We haven’t done anything yet.” Which is pretty much true. A 10-1 record is great but securing home field advantage is a lot more important. This game has to be viewed as a marathon and not as a sprint. The nice thing is Seattle has the depth to compete deep.

    It’s a subjective ranking. How will it hurt the team? It’s a guess, but I don’t think any player takes this website too seriously. That is if they even know about it.
