The Seahawks roster and coaching staff will be focusing their collective efforts to rack up as many wins as possible in 2021, retain their divisional title and make a run for the Lombardi trophy in early 2022.
Some of these personal goals are merely stepping stones on the way to more significant records in future years.
But we should recognize them in their own right as superb achievements by great athletes. Just making it to the NFL in the first place is a goal not achieved by many, so to put up any significant numbers as an NFL player warrants recognition and our admiration.
Of course, there will be some significant milestones that Seahawks players could reach in the coming season, and these are the sort that put them in elite company and mark them as players that will live in our memories long after we have forgotten about each individual achievement they make.
Several Seahawks can reach personal goals in 2021
I will outline the number each player is chasing and what week or weeks they would be most likely to reach that number in, assuming they are fortunate enough to stay healthy through the season.
All the stats I am using are taking from Pro Football Reference and include playoff games.
Let’s start with who might reach a milestone early in the season.
Week 1 at Indianapolis or week 2 v Tennessee
Jason Myers starts his seventh season in the NFL and his third in Seattle having kicked 144 field goals and 195 extra points So he could go through the 200 extra-points mark in the first game of the season if the Seahawks offense starts the season in red hot fashion.
The more likely scenario is that Myers will reach 200 in week 2 at Lumen field. He could also reach 150 field goals made in the same game, although this could roll into week 3.
Whichever way these are numbers we should not overlook, think how many practice kicks and years of dedication have gone into becoming an NFL kicker, and Myers is a very good NFL kicker to boot (excuse the pun).
