You hate to see it happen to such a likable franchise! But it appears the Seattle Seahawks are falling apart. How sad! Wonder how loud all those passionate 12 man fans will be when the core of their Super Bowl team is playing elsewhere and the Seahawks are going 6-10?
Russell Wilson wants to be a baseball player and is more awkward than me on a tinder date.
Absolutely no talent on the offensive line, Jimmy Graham is gone in free agency, no running backs, Richard Sherman is likely gone, they just traded Michael Bennett for a taco bell gift card and let's please not forget about Earl Thomas wanting to join the Cowboys.
As upset as I still am about the whole Malcolm Butler Super Bowl situation (the most recent one, not when he stole the Lombardi out of Seattle's fish tossing hands)
Moves like this just make me soooooo grateful to be a Patriots fan. No team will ever match the run of sustained success that we've enjoyed. We've been the best, most consistent team in not just the NFL, but all of the four major sports this millennium. The Super Bowls speak for themselves.
The Seahawks and their legion of boom had a really nice run. I'm being sincere about that. They had a great run. Many thought they had the potential to be a dynasty after they won their first (and only) Super Bowl in February of 2014. From 2012-2016 they were legit Super Bowl contenders, with an all time defense. However after these moves it appears their window is closing. Yeah they still have Russell Wilson who is top 10 QB in the NFL, but he can't carry this team to the playoffs alone, as we saw this season. Their defense is their trademark. That's what won them Super Bowl 48. Sherman and Bennett are gone. Kam Chancellor (the one player on their team I truly love and won't make fun of) may never play football again due to a neck injury, and Earl Thomas wants out.
Now there's rumors that they might sign Brian Cushing to help supplement their defensive losses. I'm sure that will work out swimmingly. A guy with Cushing's track record of consistency and availability will surely cover up for the destruction of possibly the greatest defensive backfield in NFL history.
The window appears to be closing, and closing fast. Sure we may have lost a Super Bowl this year due to a coaching miscue just like they did, and our window is coming to a close but the main difference is we'll be back this year, and the window has been open for nearly 20 years. It's gotta close eventually.
Your division just happens to have two of the most promising young quarterbacks in the NFL in Jimmy GQ and Jared Goff, so it may be a while until the Seattle Seahawks are relevant again in the landscape of the NFL. Are the Seattle Seahawks the 5th track on The Kings of Leon's 2016 #1 album "WALLS"? because their days of being a Super Bowl contender are Over.
