It hasn't been a good start to the season for the Seattle Seahawks who are 0-2 so far this season after notable losses to the St Louis Rams and Green Bay Packers.

Their two defeats signify important divisional and conference losses so far and there are many in the NFL world who believe the success is over in Seattle.

No positive points

Seattle are having a torrid time on the field so far this season and with a lot of negative headlines surrounding strong safety Kam Chancellor, they just can't seem to get things right.

While many claim that the sky is falling for the NFC Champions, the logical thing to do would be to keep any further negativity away from the team.

One man who hasn't helped with that is star runningback MarShawn Lynch who has created a bit of a storm following his trip to Wisconsin.

Lynch was walking the streets on Saturday ahead of their match on Sunday night with the Packers and was being followed by a group of young fans.

Once the cameras stopped rolling however, it seems that Lynch became increasingly hostile towards the fans who were asking for autographs.

TMZ were the first to report the news and according to their eye witnesses report...

"He told my nephew, 'How would you like it if I slapped that f**king phone out of your hand and that smile off your face.'" - Lynch's threat

The full incident wasn't caught on camera but what footage has surfaced, shows Lynch becoming very agitated with the following fans.

Things may not be going well for the Seahawks or Lynch personally on the field this season, but an incident like this happening off the field will surely not help things.

Back to winning ways?

Despite the Seahawks currently being 0-2 this season and the fact that 0-2 teams tend to struggle to make the play-offs, there is some positivity for the Seahawks.

Seattle have played two very tough road games so far but it could be set to get better as they prepare for two home games against the struggling Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions in weeks three and four.

Two good results for the Seahawks in upcoming weeks could completely lift spirits around CenturyLink Field - Lets not forget what happened with the eventual Super Bowl Champions the New England Patriots last year.
