Seahawks are very balanced
Joe Theismann takes a look at the Seattle Seahawks' offense.
Contrary to popular belief, Seattle is not a one-man team (MVP Shaun Alexander).

Whenever Hasselbeck drops back to pass, he'll have options such as TE Jerramy Stevens and WRs Joe Jurevicius, Bobby Engram and Darrell Jackson. That will be helpful because the Steelers won't be able to focus on taking one receiver out of the game to stymie the passing attack, as the Hawks did to the Carolina Panthers and WR Steve Smith in the NFC Championship Game.
