Youth goes both ways, good and bad, while depth and talent will help give the Seahawks a major push. Their off field issues and injuries could hinder things, though, if the team isn’t careful.

Seattle Seahawks blogger Jones Hyde weighs in today on the news about GM John Schneider and his contract extension. Jonas goes on to say Pete Carroll will be next to hit a payday. With Carroll’s original 5-year deal running through 2014, it is a given that an extension will be done within the year to keep the tandem together. After the extension is done, the real work will only just be starting. Richard Sherman & Russell Wilson are nice picks by the way.
