The Jim Mora era in Seattle was short lived as he only lasted one season as head coach. After a 5-11 campaign in 2009, the Seahawks decided to change gears and bring in Pete Carroll, formerly at USC as their eighth head coach in franchise history. Carroll had two previous stints in the NFL as the top guy, first with the Jets and later with the Patriots, so the team is hoping that the third time is a charm.

Carroll inherits a team that has some solid talent scattered throughout the lineup, but one with a number of question marks as well. One of their biggest questions heading into the 2010 season is the health of 12 year veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck. Battling multiple injuries, he has only started 21 games over the past two seasons.

In nine seasons with Seattle, Hasselbeck has only started all 16 games of the regular season three times. He is reported to be 100 percent heading into this season, but you have to question how long that will last once the hitting starts.

Carroll used his first draft with the team to help protect Hasselbeck by selecting OT Russell Okung to fill the void at left tackle after Walter Jones decided to retire. He also addressed some skill position needs by drafting WR Golden Tate in the second round and TE Anthony McCoy in the sixth. Tate will join T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Deion Branch as an additional target in the passing game.

The running game will be led by a pair of capable backs in Julius Jones and Justin Forsett. Last season these two combined for close to 1300 yards on the ground. Overall, the Seahawks will need to do a better job up front to try and improve a rushing offense that was ranked 26th in the league last season.

A big addition to the Seahawks defense will be their other first round pick; S Earl Thomas. Last season, Seattle’s pass defense was ranked 30th in the league, so Thomas along with fourth round pick CB Walter Thurmond will be a welcomed addition to the secondary. The strength of this defense will still be up front with Brandon Mebane and Colin Cole anchoring a line that helped the Seahawks rank 15th against the run last year.

One thing Seattle is going to have to figure out is how to win on the road. Last season the Seahawks were 4-4 at home but was just 1-7 away from Qwest Field. Overall, they were 6-10 against the spread; 5-3 at home and 1-7 on the road.

With over 100 roster moves since Carroll took over, this is definitely a team in transition. Their success this season depends on how quickly can all the new faces come together and play as a cohesive unit. The fact that the Seahawks play in a weak division will help their cause, but in reality this team is probably still a year or two away from seriously contending in the conference.

2010 Prediction: 2nd in the NFC West
Win Total: OVER
