Pete Carroll is doing his best in Seattle.
Pete Carroll is going to need a miracle to get this Seattle team to win the division. He has a lot of obstacles up in Seattle.
The first obstacle would have to be the Seahawks' offense. Seattle has one of the worst offenses in the NFL.
The Seahawks average 182.3 passing yards per game. This average puts them at fourth worst in the league.
Fourth worst in the league is pretty bad, but it's not as bad as their rushing game. The Seahawks average 80.5 yards per game on the ground, which is the second worst in the league.
An inability to generate offense is a horrible problem to have, and it has hurt the Seahawks this season.
Their inability to generate yards has carried over to their scoring game.
Seattle has average 16.2 points per game, which is the fifth worst in the NFL.
Luckily, the Seahawks defense has been much better than their offense. At 104.7 rushing yards per game, the Seahawks have the 11th best run defense in the NFL.
Their passing defense isn't horrible either. Pete Carroll's side allows an average of 250 yards per game in the air, which ranks them 20th in the league.
Where the Seattle defense really impresses however, is their points allowed. The Seahawks allow 21.3 points per game, which is the seventh best in the NFL.
While the Seahawks defense has demonstrated effective play this year, the Seahawks offense has been quite poor.
If the Seattle Seahawks have any hope of a successful season they are going to need their offense to start turning in performances.
