Seahawks: 10 most important questions to be answered in 2020
8. Can Jason Myers return to his 2018 form?
Myers is about to start year two of his four-year contract with the Seahawks. He’ll be kicking for his job in 2020, as the Seahawks have a potential out in his contract after the season concludes. The Seahawks gave Myers his big deal after an insanely successful 2018 with the Jets where he made a Pro Bowl and kicked 92% on the season. Specifically from 40-49 yards out, he hit 11/12 kicks, and from 50+ yards he hit 6/7.
However, he regressed last season with the Seahawks hitting 4/7 from 40-49 yards and 2/4 from 50+ yards with an overall percentage of 82% kicks made. Myers was nothing to complain about last season but with the Seahawks always seeming to be in close games every year (12 one-score games in 2019), Myers’ right leg is definitely one of the most important assets on this team.
If the Seahawks want to go far, they’re going to need Myers not missing big kicks just as he did in 2018. The Seahawks have also seen this first hand with two games last year being won with the opposing kicker missing a game-winning field goal (LA and @SF), and of course, the worst missed field goal of all time a few years ago.
