Merry (late) Christmas, Seattle Seahawks fans!
While this season isn’t everything we had wished it to be, it’s still good to be hopeful when looking to the future.
Since it’s the holiday season, let’s break down three things that we as Seahawks fans should be looking forward to, hoping that the team can make them all happen!
3 Christmas gifts Seahawks fans should wish for
Number one: A strong finish to the regular season: Whether the team remains in contention or not, none of us want to see the Seahawks lose, and we especially do not want to see a team that is giving up on the field. The Seahawks still have a chance to finish the season strong, with winnable games against the Bears and Lions coming up.
To end the season, the Seahawks travel to Arizona. While this will be the hardest of the three, it’s always a possibility that the team can pull out a win, particularly if the Hawks build some momentum down the stretch.
Number two: An offseason DK Metcalf extension: I know DK hasn’t been having a superstar-type year, but we all know how gifted he is. This offseason, the Seahawks get a chance to extend him before the beginning of his last rookie-deal year. They may even be able to save a bit of cash based on his production this season.
There’s no reason the Seahawks shouldn’t pounce on the opportunity to sign him to a long-term contract before any other team has a chance to join the race. I think we should all be wishing to see Metcalf in a Seahawk uniform for many more years.
Number three: More Jake Curhan playtime: Curhan has showed out in two starts at right tackle, and since the Seahawks aren’t planning on playing in the postseason, I would like to see him start the remainder of the season at right tackle. He seems to be a prospect that has a shot at being a starter next season, especially in a run-heavy scheme.
Unless for some reason the Seattle front office has big plans to resign Brandon Shell in 2022, let’s wish for a good long look at a player who could be a diamond in the rough if he pans out.
After the season comes to an end there will be a lot more to unpack. For now, let’s hope to get a few last Christmas gifts from this organization (one of those being a victory over the Bears in Week 16)!
