The Seattle Seahawks will have a target on their back from the very beginning of the 2014 season, but that won't stop them from continuing the level of excellence that their football team has maintained over the past couple of seasons.
They're in the position to do some extravagant things, but one of the most intriguing possibilities is that Marshawn Lynch may break 2,000 yards rushing this year. He certainly has the talent to do so, and now that Seattle has made some improvements around him, Beast Mode may be able to reach a new level.
A juiced-up passing game and a patched-up offensive line will be two advantages afforded to Lynch in 2014 that he didn't have in 2013, and could be the key to him hitting that milestone.
It will be interesting to see how things play out, but that's not the only exciting thing that the Seahawks could accomplish this year.
