Seahawks Thursday morning links and notes: Assessing Seattle at mid-season

This week marks the beginning of the second half of the season, which makes it an obvious time to review what’s happened so far.

So I did just that for our paper today, filing this midseason report that includes grades and MVPs for each of the three phases — offense, defense and special teams.

Agree? Disagree?

Times columnist Jerry Brewer, meanwhile, wrote that the Seahawks are far from finished this season despite some of the travails of the first half.

We’ve explored here — and will continue to the rest of the way, as well — the challenges of the second half of the season, which really start with next week’s trip to Kansas City.

It hardly needs to be stated that the Seahawks have to beat the Giants and get to 6-3 to have any real shot of a repeat in the NFC West. That makes this pretty much a take-care-of-business Sunday. And then the Seahawks can really get down to the business of the second half of the season.
