The Seahawks did not hire fritter away a wad of cash on free agency, hire a top assistant as head coach or go after a big-armed QB. Instead, they hired a guy fired twice in the NFL and found 53 guys who bought in.
The Seahawks will reportedly look at veteran kickers Ryan Longwell and Neil Rackers this week. Seattle kicker Steven Hauschka, who is 27 of 30 on field goals this season, injured his calf in the playoff win over Washington and his status is uncertain.
The Seahawks clinched a playoff berth on Sunday night with a 42-13 win over division rival San Francisco. Seattle can win the NFC West with a victory over St. Louis in Week 17 and a 49ers loss to Arizona.
