2011 NFL Standings: Seattle Seahawks Unsteady In NFC West

The Seattle Seahawks are in second place in the NFC West behind the San Francisco 49ers, but it's not as close as it sounds.

The Seattle Seahawks aren't quite in the danger zone in the NFC West, but they're not getting off on the right foot.

San Francisco 49ers: 3-1, 1-0 in division, 2-1 in conference
Seattle Seahawks: 1-3, 1-1 in division, 1-2 in conference
Arizona Cardinals: 1-3, 0-1 in division, 1-3 in conference
St. Louis Rams: 0-4, 0-0 in division, 0-3 in conference

Seattle has struggled in all their regular season contests, although they've proven they can compete in their NFC West battles with Arizona and San Francisco. But Seattle has already fallen two games behind the 49ers, and will almost certainly have to win their rematch if they expect to have any chance of competing for the divisional title. Otherwise Seattle would be practically four games behind.

On the bright side, Seattle does hold the current tiebreaker over Arizona, and they're still ahead of St. Louis. The Seahawks still remain in second place in the division, but their climb is high.
