Last Thursday night at Safeco Field, did the Seattle Mariners finally decide they needed to make a serious upgrade to their starting rotation?
Honestly, when I saw Richard Sherman on the mound, I will confess that a small part of me hoped he would be available if necessary for the M's, who are off to a somewhat disappointing start to the season.
Once it became clear that neither Sherman nor his teammates Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor would be sticking around, my thoughts drifted towards a time not too far off when they will be taking the field just around the block at CLink Field.
Understand it's not that I'm ready to give up on the Mariners so much as the fact that what the Seahawks have going for them is too exciting to continue to patiently wait for over the next few months, especially with the release of the 2013 NFL Schedule (via NFL.com).
With the NFL releasing the entire regular-season schedule on Thursday, I figured it might be fun to rank each game on the Seahawks schedule (via NFL.com) from the easiest to the toughest as a means of helping us as fans mentally prepare for what may be a truly special season in Seattle.
