NFL Power Rankings After Week 9: The Seahawks ... Well, You Know.

The Seahawks are still loitering, lingering, brooding, and milling about at the bottom of the list for just about everyone out there. As we saw on Tuesday, the Hawks are currently seventh in terms of order for next year's Draft, but according to the Power Rankings compiled by outlets around the country, and also by statistical analysis, 'only seventh-worse' is being very generous. 

In fact, apart from Vinnie Iyer of CBS, Football Outsiders' DVOA is actually the most generous to the Seahawks (which is good, I guess), listing Seattle as 27th in total DVOA, a one-slot drop from last week. Past them, the Seahawks are right around the bottom 3, bottom 4 in the league by reputation. Advanced NFL Stats has the Hawks 29th in the league. 

FOOTBALL OUTSIDERS DVOA Ratings -  27 (26): Seattle drops a notch. 26th in Offensive DVOA, 15th in Defensive DVOA, and 29th in Special Teams

Advanced NFL Stats:  29 (29). Only Denver, Kansas City, and Indianapolis sit below the Seahawks.

25 (26): Vinnie Iyer - "Beast Mode" has kept the Seahawks competitive, and with their quarterback injury issues going forward, they'll need to stay in that mode a lot longer in games.

31 (29): Brian Billick - Seattle is about to find out just how far away they are from being a good team by hosting the Ravens this weekend. If head coach Pete Carroll had issues with Jim Harbaugh at the college level, wait until he gets a load of is brother John and the Ravens D.

29 (30): Joel Thorman - 28th offense. 22nd defense. Hard to see how this team won even seven games last year.

28 (27) Pete Prisco - They just can't throw the football, no matter who plays quarterback. Tarvaris Jackson isn't the answer.

Where would you guys put the Hawks? I can't say I disagree much with what these sites have to say.
