The Seattle Seahawks have reached a crossroads. Seattle is 3-8 and must think about making some serious changes this offseason. Some of the questions, of course, are which changes to actually make and then once those changes are made, what is the result?
Besides the four questions to follow, I could list several more. Can the Seahawks actually win 2 more games this year because at this point even the outcome of their matchup versus the winless Lions is in doubt? What does Seattle do to fix its running back situation as there is a very real possibility that Chris Carson never returns? Should Seattle ask Bobby Wagner to restructure his deal to help bring in better talent? And the same could be asked of Russell Wilson.
Not since Pete Carroll and John Schneider started running the team has Seattle had such important questions to answer in an upcoming offseason. Yes, Carroll and Schneider made a ton of changes their first couple of years but that was to help make a bad team good. Then the team remained good for the most part until 2021.
The four biggest questions the Seahawks must answer for future success
But Carroll and Schneider haven’t had to answer how to make a team that’s been good for so long that appears to be taking a downward turn better. I’m not sure they do know. And if they don’t then this franchise is going to be bad for a long time.
Of course, some of the questions that need to be answered the rest of this year and into the offseason include Carroll and Schneider and Wilson. What follows may be the four biggest questions for the future success of the Seahawks.
