Seattle Seahawks slip a spot in Touchdown Wire’s...


The Seattle Seahawks topped the NFL power rankings last week, jumping up to Touchdown Wire’s No. 1 spot. Now, through no fault of their own and due to their bye week, the Seahawks have dropped from No. 1 to No. 2 in the rankings. The Steelers have now taken over the top spot.

“Bye weeks can be a double-edged sword. For the football team facing a week off, you get a chance to rest, recover and fine-tune things as you look ahead to the second half of the season,” writes Mark Schofield. “For yahoos like me in the media, you get a chance to artificially slide those teams down in rankings like these for the mere fact that the schedule did not afford that franchise a chance to play football on a given Sunday.”

“Yet that is the fate that the Seattle Seahawks face this week,” Schofield continues. “After climbing to the top of the mountain in last week’s ranking, their bye week sees the Pittsburgh Steelers jump ahead of them at the top of the pecking order. But I’m sure Pete Carroll has bigger fish to fry.”
