    Seahawks: the lightest, wimpiest NFL team ?

    I heard a guy describe his Seattle Seahawks as mild, light, wimpy, and not that physical. Let's face it, these guys get pushed around. The NFL team from the "Granola Coast" is not manly enough. "Finesse team" from a city where the men sip lattes and don't lift weights, and enjoy vegan entrees. Enough said.

    They are not good, that's for shure! But I wouldn't mind having Hasselbeck on our team. He's good!

    Hasselbeck is very good, when healthy.

    But I can't escape the impression either of a light team that is just not physical enough. I also think that the Cowboys are a bit like this: flashy and built from the outside-in, i.e. the receivers, not the line. There are a bunch of teams like this in the NFL.

    On the other han, you won't see the Steelers or Titans get "out-physicalled", I think. Heck, the Steelers wide receiver (Hines Ward) broke some guy's jaw and was almost fined for a "hit".

    Full list of NFL teams based on physicality (defined as "in the trenches football", solid blocking, solid pass rush, knocked guys on their butts, and hard open-field hits: from hardest to softest):

    Most physical:

    1. Bears
    2. Steelers
    3. Titans
    4. Ravens
    5. Eagles
    6. Jaguars
    7. Vikings
    8. Panthers
    9. Patriots
    10. Chargers

    ...

    Most wimpy:

    1. Seahawks
    2. Cardinals
    3. 49ers
    4. Rams
    5. Bengals
    6. Jets
    7. Broncos
    8. Lions
    9. Falcons
    10. Cowboys

    Seacocks are a terrible team and i hope they don't win any more games.

    I disagree with Broncos, 49ers, Cowboys. All those teams have won the SB and were HARDHITTERS!

    The rigors of Spartan life. Leonidas is cast out into the wild, and survives the harsh winter to return to his home, when he is crowned King ....a Viking!
