07:52 AM ET 11.04 | Pete Carroll, typically, is taking an optimistic approach. Even when life is out of control, Carroll finds a way to control some aspect of it. But don't let his charisma fool you. As the injuries mount, as the schedule strengthens, as the Seahawks become easier for opponents to decipher, the coach faces a challenge that will not only define his first season in Seattle, but one that threatens to destroy the solid progress the team has made thus far. The Seahawks' injury problems have the potential to turn their biggest weakness into a debacle and turn their biggest strength into another source of consternation.

That look of consternation is his typical look. He wore that all the time with the Pats.

They play in the NFC West.

Right now, he's lucky if he still has bladder control. Yes, the Rams have a good chance to win the NFC West.

If Spags can get a couple more receiving weapons (perferably the deep speed type), that offense could be special.

It's the Seahawks. They're progress was bound to come undone anyhow. Don't they realize by now that Seattle is the "Cleveland of the West?"

Consternation is more appropriately applied to the way he left the USC program.

That would be funny is Cleveland actually HAD a football team.

Well, yeah, that's one thing that could help the Seahawks.

What's the over/under on the sacks the G-Men will have this weekend?

Yes they are. Hopefully Pete will have his backup QBs ready to go.

About ten. I'm taking the over.

Porous. It could be ugly, although I wouldn't count on anything just yet. Giants have never played well in Seattle.

And I might add, that Pete was a good coach with the Pats (27-21), in the three years he was there.

Check the NFL standing and you will see that the "NFC West", is not any worse than the other divisions (record wise).

May not... if the Rams keep this up.
