This could just be the start for the Super Bowl champions. The Seattle Seahawks are still young, extremely talented and have most of their core intact for at least one more season.
Seattle's win over Denver was the culmination of the overhaul coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider embarked on when they took control of the Seahawks. Nearly 1,000 roster moves later, they could finally take the ultimate satisfaction in what they created: the envy of the NFL.
The Seahawks are mean and talented on defense. They have one of the most dynamic young players in the game in quarterback Russell Wilson and a cast that is more than complementary.
Plus there is very little indication this will be a one-year flash. This team is built for the future.
