It was crazy enough when they lost at home three weeks ago to the Cowboys. But it was jaw dropping when they suffered two Sundays ago to the Rams in St. Louis. It reminded not only football lovers but Seahawks lovers how hard the road back to the Super Bowl can be.
The Percy Harvin trade to the Jets showed something that threatened to tear down Pete Carroll’s happy-go-lucky environment.
However, besides the Harvin Problem is the reality that Seattle lost some of the quality depth that initiated their takeover a year ago. The Legion of Boom lost Walter Thurmond III and Brandon Browner. The offense lost Golden Tate.
Compared to the 39 turnovers they tallied in 2013, they’ve only had five this season.
They caught 28 interceptions last season but only caught two this season. The pass rush is spiraling: St Louis’ Austin Davis attempted 21 passes and wasn’t sacked. Marshawn Lynch is on a six-game streak without a 100-yard rushing day but when DeMarco Murray visited he recorded his sixth 100-yard game against a defense who was ranked number 0ne in defensive rushing.
However, we can’t count them out just yet.
Russell Wilson nearly brought them back single-handedly one time and he can definitely do it again. He’s a good guy to have as a leader. The trust has to be put back into this team. But in the meantime, they are 4-3, and the NFC West-leading Cardinals are 6-1. With the win on Sunday over the broken Carolina Panthers, a little trust seems to have crept back in.
Only place to go is up, especially with Oakland has the next game on Sunday.
There’s nine games left, meaning the Seattle Seahawks are not don’t yet. There is plenty of time to go on a hot streak now.
Can we make it back to the top?
