The Seattle Seahawks loss to the Rams on Tuesday night effectively signified the end of the Seahawks 2021 playoff hopes. Does it mean the end of the Russell Wilson era as well?
The path to the postseason is now extremely convoluted, and we should not expect to see the team entering the playoffs this year. With that being said, it’s time to face the offseason. I expect to see a big change, or multiple big changes, coming this year.
The John/Pete/Russ regime is over in my mind, after the group hasn’t reached a conference title game since the 2014 season, and things will look different for the Seahawks next season if the front office and team ownership are willing to embrace change.
3 potential Russell Wilson trade packages if Seattle wants to overhaul the team
It’s not a bad thing. This core won Seattle a Super Bowl in 2013 and came within a few feet (and a very bad play call) of a second title. With that being said, Russell Wilson walking away after this season brings benefits to both parties in the deal.
The Seahawks get a chance to get younger at quarterback and bring in a prospect who hasn’t peaked yet, and Russell Wilson gets to move on to another organization where he feels he can chase another Super Bowl more effectively. I believe that we shouldn’t hold onto Wilson just because the Seahawks won a Super Bowl with him. Let’s use his trade value to start a new era of Seahawk football.
