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.
Seattle relies on its defense to control games but its offense must make good on its possessions against the high-powered Broncos. Some explosive plays from crafty quarterback Russell Wilson will be a must.
Seahawks kicker Steve Hauschka definitely someone who knows his limits. On a pivotal fourth down in the fourth quarter, the Seahawks passed on a field goal attempt because Hauschka didn't think he could make it.
