He's on pace for 336 carries. It's a lot, but it's fine. The goal should be to keep a back under 350 carries.

Seahawks Needs

#1 WR
If it's not a 1st round receiver we really don't need a WR. Sidney Rice is good, but he's at the point where he'd be better off as a #2. Golden Tate would be a great deep threat and Baldwin a great slot guy. That would really jump start the offense. Justin Hunter is a favorite of mine.

Pass Rushing LB
I'm talking Von Miller type. I know that's not easy to find. He would play either WLB or SLB, opposite Wright. Sean Porter of Texas A&M would be a solid pick. A guy that can play the run behind Red Bryant (not that hard) and consistently rush the passer from the 2-point.

Pass Rushing UT
We have two really good LEOs, a great NT, and a solid LDE, but we don't really have a guy that can rush the passer from the 1-gap. Jason Jones has been great at times, but not often enough. Alan Branch is good but can't rush the passer. A guy like Melton would be great. Sylvester Williams is a player I like.

Offensive Guard
Carpenter has actually looked great at LG since playing there and looks to have a spot on this team for the long haul. But RG has been a turnstile, with Moffit going down, to McQuisin sucking, to a UDFA DE starting at RG. It's been terrible. I wish we could get Jonathan Cooper.

RT
Breno Giacomini is just so stupid and gets penalized like twice a game. This year his play hasn't bee good enough to make up for it and he needs to go. A guy like Florida's Xavier Nixon would be perfect. I don't think he's good enough to play LT, but he's just athletic enough and strong enough for RT.

LDE
Red Bryant has been great, but he just brings nothing as far as pass rush. We need a guy like Watt or Calais who can stop the run and rush the passer. Greg Scruggs could develop to be that guy, but I'd rather have someone like Florida's Shariff Floyd play that position and generate more pressure.

Receiving TE
I really like Jordan Reed. Zach Miller just hasn't lived up to the hype as a receiver and we need a threat from that position. I'm not just saying this because the college, but Reed remind me a LOT of Aaron Hernandez. That is exactly the type of guy we need. He could go as late as the 3rd.

We have a lot of needs but I wouldn't say any of them are major ones. That leaves us in a good position to go BPA each round. I really like Terence Williams and Brandon Coleman as WR options.

I was looking at the wild card race because, lets face it, we probably wont beat out the 49ers for the NFC West title. But, after I looked at it, its looks like we will probably make the playoffs. Heres my thinking:

First, start with the current playoff picture:

NFC North: Bears seem to be the favorite (Personally, I think their overrated, but for the sake of this, lets say they win.

NFC South: Falcons

NFC East: Giants

NFC West: 49ers

Now, Here is the Wild Card Race:
Packers (5-3)
Vikings (5-3)
Cardinals (4-4)
Seahawks (4-4)
Lions (3-5)
Buccaneers (3-5)

Next, lets analyze it. I think that the Packers are guaranteed to get a wild card spot, unless they claim the division, in which case Chicago will probably get that wild card spot. The Vikings are ailing, and same goes for the Cardinals. I bet by seasons end, neither of them are contenders. This next game will likely be the deciding factor for our playoff spot, as if we win, we claim the tiebreaker over the Vikings. Then its us, with a very easy remaining schedule. IMO, The Lions are the real team to worry about. After last week, they claim the tiebreaker over us, and they could easily turn things around here soon. They will be our biggest competition. Lastly, its the Buccaneers, who dont have a realistic shot, but I thought I would include them.

In the end, I think we will probably get the #6 seed. The main things we have to do is beat the Vikings this Sunday, and then keep ahead of the Lions. With our favorable remaining schedule, I think that is reasonable.

Thoughts?

Pretty much agree with everything you just said.

Interesting part about us getting the #6 seed is that it is very possible our first round game would be against the 49ers.

Zach Miller needs to take a pay cut. I like the guy, but it's just not matching up

Indeed. We'll see what John Schneider can do about that.

I don't mind paying Sidney if he keeps it up though,

Packers (6-3) - Look good, defensive frailties
Vikings (5-4) - Tough schedule ahead
Cardinals (4-5) - Will be lucky to finish with 6 wins
Seahawks (5-4) - Will win at least 3 of 4 at home, could win all four, should take another two on the road. 10-11 wins.
Lions (4-5) - Tough Division
Buccaneers (4-5) - Trending upwards

I would agree with everything there, but I'd give the Lions a little more of a chance than you seem to be.

I believe we are currently the sixth seed if the season were to end today.

Looks like Kearse is going to stay on the roster he did something on Sunday that he did quite a bit at UW drop balls that hit him in the hands hope that trend doesn't continue if he sees the field.

It looks like Pete might be planning on activating Walter Thurmond. I believe that he needs to make a decision before Monday.

I wish there was some way we could get Romeo Crennel as our DC next year...

It could happen. It'll certainly be a surprise if he still has a job in KC next year. Question is...will PC be looking for a new DC if we make the playoffs this year?

No... And he wouldnt bring in someone as established as Crennel to run HIS D. Pete loves his D and wants someone who is a yes sir no sir type of DC not someone who can run it by themselves.
