This isn’t a Super Bowl team
The Seahawks have a ton of talent. This team isn’t all that different from the one that made it to the Super Bowl 2 seasons ago, and went into the playoffs as a dominant team a year ago.
Ultimately though, this team just isn’t as good. The defense doesn’t get consistent pressure on the QB quite often enough enough. They miss Earl Thomas too much in the center of field.
Plus, the offense is completely broken. They can’t run the ball. That can’t protect Russell Wilson. All that talent on the outside doesn’t matter if they cannot get them to the ball.
The Seahawks need to overhaul the offense. The offensive line needs multiple upgrades. Cable needs to go. If an upgrade on Bevell can be found, then that move needs to be made as well.
Even with all the injuries, the defense is capable of being championship caliber. It isn’t as dominant as it was when everyone was healthy, but it is still good. The offense is holding this team back, and changes need to be made.
Ultimately, it’ll be the offense that ends Seattle’s playoff run early this year. There is no way this group of guys can do enough to win 4 straight in the playoffs, with 3 of those game likely on the road.
