Even though the season is at mid point, the toughest part of the Seahawks schedule begins with games with the Chiefs, 49ers, Eagles, Rams, and Cardinals coming up. These opponents have a combined winning percentage of .722. Sadly, the Seahawks will have to play without Defensive Tackle Brandon Mebane. Mebane, an 8 year veteran, is considered the heart of the defense. Although he does not get the most sacks, he played a vital role in distracting blockers and has been a stand out in the locker room. Mebane, one of my favorite players, is out with a hamstring injury.
