The Seahawks stayed put after a bye week in national power rankings. Only time wil tell if they go up or down from here.
The Seattle Seahawks can win big when they want as shown when they knocked off the New York Giants. But aside from that huge win, the Seahawks have continued to underwhelm and find themselves being shown the same amount of respect by everyone who is watching - and that isn't saying much.
ESPN, SBNation and Sportsline all kept the Seahawks at their previous rank after a bye week. But that didn't keep the sites from asking questions on whether or not they can eventually make moves up the rankings.
ESPN noted that the Seahawks are now even younger with Marcus Trufant on the injured reserve. Sportsline wondered whether or not the momentum of the win over the Giants was enough to get over the bye week and still leave the Seahawks confident heading into their game with the Bengals. And SBNation just can't find anything that this team does well.
ESPN (22), Sportsline (24) and SBNation (26). That's where the Seahawks sit.
