Do you have/want bermuda? If so, yes, but only seed bermuda in the late spring. It won't make it through that first winter otherwise. You can seed fescue in the fall.

Another questions is, are we treating our lawn with too much fertilizers ?? Last year my lawn was very good, this year not so good, this is the second year I have contracted with Scotts. I read somewhere that too much fertilizers can also kill the grass! (of course not good for the environment), just trying to find a balance.

need more information.

is that portion of lawn in full sun? bermuda does not like shade
have you done a soil test? ph problems will cause the grass to not take up nutrients in the soil
how much water does the lawn get?

My lawn looked like that last year and with the wet spring, most of the grass filled in on it's own so if you already have bermuda I would say to get a soil test now and make sure it gets enough water in the spring. probably don't need seed although overseeding with annual rye now could help condition the soil for next spring and crowd out some weeds.
