Run it back?
Sitting at 3-8, the Seattle Seahawks have a 1% chance of making the playoffs. In order for them to have any hope of making the playoffs, they need to be flawless moving forward and get a bunch of help from other teams. Regardless, I know Pete Carroll and his players are going to want to run the table. Heck, his job may depend on a strong finish.
After all the headlines surrounding Russell Wilson last offseason, many experts are expecting the same this year. Last year, Wilson was disgruntled when they finished 12-4 and in first place of the NFC West. How will he react now as he continues to get hit often and is currently ranked last in the NFC West? As I have stated in the past, I believe Russell Wilson remains a Seahawk moving forward. Not too many teams have the capital to acquire him and if Pete does stay, at his age, I do not think he wants to rebuild.
Last year, Pete Carroll signed a contract extension through 2025. General manager, John Schneider, also signed a contract extension through 2027. If they were to clean house, obviously both Pete and John would have to be fired. Many speculations has been brewing around Pete’s future in Seattle. But, what if they didn’t want to clean house? Seattle is not accustomed to this type of season as they have been a mark of consistency over the last decade.
Given the injury to Russell Wilson, they may all sit back and say, let’s give it one more go. They all certainly believe they are better than what their record shows. Ever since Wilson’s return, he has shown accuracy issues that have hurt this offense. We know he is better than that.
The defense has young pieces who have shown potential. They have the weapons on offense. They will have some spending money in the offseason. I would say there is a very good chance this organization meets after the season and comes with up a game plan to keep the core intact for one more dance.
