Seahawks 'in the middle of something really special'

Asked if he studied why no Super Bowl winner has repeated since the 2004 New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll offered a self confident response suggesting his team is unfazed by history or the vulnerabilities that tripped up previous defending champions.

haven studied it particularly. I well aware of it. I think everybody else is very aware of it but that doesn have anything to do with us, what happened before to other teams or whatever, Carroll told USA TODAY Sports at the March owner meetings.

Carroll also knows any chance for a Super Bowl title defense begins and likely ends with winning the ultra tough NFC West, the new black and blue division.

That dynasty quest begins when the Seahawks host the annual kickoff game Thursday night Sept. 4 against the Green Bay Packers at CenturyLink Field, where the Seahawks went 7 1 last season. Their challenge continues with a Week 3, Sept. 21 Super Bowl XLVIII sequel also at home against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.

The NFC West will likely come down to a 17 day span beginning with Seattle Nov. 27 Thanksgiving night showdown at San Francisco Levi Stadium followed by what could prove the NFC West championship game Dec. 14 when the Seahawks host the 49ers.

Sandwiched in between those two titanic contests, the Seahawks face a Dec. 7 cross country trip to face Chip Kelly Philadelphia Eagles.

division makes it better for us we have to play, we have to learn to stay up week after week after week, Carroll said. the best thing about our division, it calls for us to be at our best constantly. Because this whole thing is about consistency. And there absolutely no chance that you can get by any other way.

of the hallmarks is that we have those type of matchups so our division is as good as it gets making us as good as we can get. Carroll might be just the against the grain, ever positive leader to inspire his team to buck long odds and the grinding challenge of wearing a bulls eye each week.

While the rival San Francisco 49ers have been embroiled in offseason turmoil, the Seahawks re signed free agent pass rusher Michael Bennett and receiver Sidney Rice.

Now imagine if the defending Super Bowl champions Chris Borland Kids Jersey get a healthy regular season out of home run threat Percy Harvin, whose 87 yard kick return touchdown against the Broncos cemented Seattle 43 8 Super Bowl throttling. Harvin played just 19 regular season snaps following preseason hip surgery.

Carroll said playing what amounts to six regular season playoff games against divisional rival 49ers, Arizona Cardinals and St. Louis Rams is Seattle built in sharpening tool for their repeat quest.

game http://www.49ersofficialnflauthentic.com/authentic-chris-borland-jersey.html is a championship. Every game has a chance to determine if you make it or you don make it, Carroll said. absolutely try to discipline ourselves to expect that is what we going to see every single week.

guaranteed now. So I don have to do a lot of selling on that one.

part of the makeup of handling this challenge understanding the reality of that.

why our division is so crucially important to give us the best chance of where we can play at that level of consistency. 62, believes the Seahawks are just getting started.
