In 2021, the Seattle Seahawks look to defend their NFC West crown in a division that got better throughout the offseason. After a disappointing end to the 2020 season with an early playoff exit, the Seahawks look for redemption.
In what was a soap opera styled offseason with the Russell Wilson saga, the Seahawks managed their way through the storm and have seemed to come out stronger on the other side. They seemed to have made the necessary moves to satisfy Wilson and had a really solid draft with only a select few draft picks.
After finishing in first place, it should come as no surprise that the Seahawks have one of the harder schedules in the league. While some may look at that as a disadvantage, I find it serves as an advantage. Pete Carroll loves competition and as the old saying goes, iron sharpens iron.
Too early predictions for the Seahawks in 2021
The star in Seattle is a winner. Russell Wilson has yet to have a losing season in the NFL. In sports, teams typically take on the identity of their star player. Over the last decade, Seattle has developed the winning attitude that Wilson brings to the table. 2021 is going to be a big year for the Seahawks.
Despite the fact that Wilson is “happy” now, things can change if he gets hit a lot once again this season.
Although there are still some holes on the roster that can be answered with some late free agent signings, we have more than enough information to predict the 2021 Seattle Seahawks record.
