Five takeaways from the Seahawks' 13-9 victory in Carolina | HeraldNet.com - Seattle Sidelines

After a rocky 10-day stretch that saw the Seahawks trade Percy Harvin, lose to the struggling St. Louis Rams, then endure a week of reports, rumors and speculation about locker room unrest, there was legitimate reason to be concerned about the Seahawks. Time to panic? No, but definitely reason to wonder about the Seahawks’ chances of repeating as division champs, let alone Super Bowl champs. And while the Seahawks didn’t respond to adversity with a dominant performance, they did grind out a tough road victory, which in the end is just as meaningful.
