Three reasons for hope for Seahawks in 2020
By Lee Vowell
The Seahawks receiving crops is going to be really good
In 2019, the Seahawks won 12 games, including one in the playoffs. The reason for most of those wins was because the offense was very good and much better than the defense. Even though offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. gets the blame for inconsistent playcalling (and maybe he should), Seattle has still produced since he became the OC two years ago. Seattle was 8th in the NFL in total yards last season (374.4 per game).
Russell Wilson had another great season, of course. His quarterback rating was 106.3 and he threw 31 touchdown passes and just 5 interceptions. But he did so starting the season with just two proven players: Will Dissly and Tyler Lockett. 12s did not know yet what D.K. Metcalf would be. And Dissly got hurt in week 6 and missed the rest of the year.
But 2020 could be a special year for the Seahawks receivers. Not only have we learned that Metcalf is probably going to be really good, but Lockett showed himself to be a number-one receiver. Dissly should be back by week one and Seattle added free agent tight end Greg Olsen.
Seattle will still be looking for a number-three option at wideout, but the 2020 NFL draft is loaded with good receivers so the Seahawks should be able to find a good one there.
