The Seahawks have had a bad start to 2021 and their chances of making the playoffs are slim. Even if Seattle does make the postseason, it could be that the Arizona Cardinals are going to overtake them completely in the next year or two if they haven’t long-term already. Plus, the Rams always give Seattle fits.
How must a 49ers fan feel for their team to be playing in the immensely rugged NFC West. Two years San Francisco made the Super Bowl and looked ready to be good for the next five years. Last year, maybe because of injuries, San Francisco missed the postseason.
But in 2021 even a bit healthier 49ers team (yes, they have once again struggled at some positions with getting hurt) is one of the two worst teams in the division. The NFC West gives no fudges as to whether you have injuries or not. This isn’t the NFC East, after all. Backups need to step up and make difference or their teams are sunk.
But we learned quickly in preseason games that the Seahawks are a top-heavy talent team. And if one of those talented players, like Jamal Adams, doesn’t meet expectations then games and the entire season goes south very quickly.
3 Seahawks to trade at the 2021 trade deadline
Seattle needs to make 2022 and 2023 better. This is a proud franchise with a lot of recent success. (Some fans may disagree but it should be said: Thank you, Pete Carroll!) The team still has Russell Wilson and Adams isn’t going anywhere. Seattle can be really good in the next few years but may need to trade some key pieces to get there.
To be better in the future, Seattle should trade these 3 players.
