The 2009 season started well for the Seattle Seahawks, with a shutout win against the hapless Rams. Unfortunately for Seahawks fans, and Jim Mora, it was pretty much downhill from there. They would win only four more games last year, to finish with a 5-11 record. With Jim Mora taking over for Mike Holmgren, there was hope that some new blood would re-invigorate the team that had made 5 straight playoff appearances in the middle of the decade. The problem seemed to be that new blood was needed in more places than just the HC position. Walter Jones and Matt Hasselbeck had both been battling injuries in recent years, and neither were up to their former standards this year either. Certainly, there were other issues as well, as the defense did not perform particularly well last season. But, that is the purpose of this post. The Seahawks are next in my series of 2009 NFL Season Reviews.
