What if the Seahawks were walking down the red carpet today? Who would win what?
Look, I know you are already watching red carpet stuff. And no Seahawks are going to win Oscars today. But what if the Oscars were all about Seattle football? Who would win the different awards? Here’s a guess.
Actor in a Leading Role
Clearly, this would be Russell Wilson‘s award. No other Seattle player is more important. Is he the best player on the team? Maybe. Or possibly that belongs to Bobby Wagner. Either way, Wagner is the Glenn Close of Seahawks. He might be great every year, but he isn’t winning this category as long as Wilson is involved.
Actress in a Leading Role
Jody Allen is the decision maker in Seattle now. After Paul Allen passed away, his sister, Jody, took over. However Seattle football turns out in the future, Jody is going to have a big say. And that may be a very good thing because she cares about the team.
Ken Norton gets this one. He took a defense that lost a lot of pieces and made them pretty decent in 2018. His competition is Brian Schottenheimer who was decent too, even if 12s don’t want to admit it. The issue is that when it came to the playoffs, Norton’s script was good enough to win and Schottenheimer’s was not.
The Seahawks win over the Chiefs in week 16 gave 12s the greatest hope for the future. Kansas City made it all the way to the AFC Championship game and could have easily beaten the Patriots and then won the Super Bowl. When Seattle defeated the Chiefs, Kansas City was not resting any key players and Seattle beat Kansas City the way they wanted by running the ball and controlling the clock. This is how Seattle could roll out a red carpet of their own when they greet 12s back in Seattle after a 2019 Super Bowl win.
