Sometimes a team is just average. That's all it is and all it will be. Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Seattle Seahawks.

There is some talent on the team, but after falling 34-12 to an increasingly dangerous Cincinatti Bengals team, that talent is proving to not be enough to get the Seahawks from off the list of bottom feeders in the NFL.

ESPN and CBS Sportsline both dropped the Seahawks from no. 26 to no. 27 in their Power Rankings and both point to the team's troubles on offense as the primary culprit. Being ranked 31st in the league in total offense will make people talk about you.

SBNation has shown its disdain for the Seahawks for weeks now, finally putting them at no. 30, two spots down from their perch last week. And again, the quarterback position was singled out. Seems like getting one of those sort of helps a team win games.
