The Seattle Seahawks are now 6-5 and facing more pressing games each week. Should Seattle lose to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13, the Week 14 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers might be a must-win game for Seattle. The team might be about to be passed for a playoff spot by the Los Angeles Rams, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, and New Orleans Saints.

Still, it only takes a couple of great weeks from Seattle to makes 12s feel a lot better about the 2023 season. Let's pretend that Seattle is 8-6 by the time the next three games are done. That would mean winning two out of three against the 49ers, Cowboys, and Philadelphia Eagles. Wouldn't that change our outlook on the season? And anything is possible, if not probable.

But the Seahawks need to start coming up with better game-plans and then executing those game-plans. At this point, it is unclear whether the players truly believe the design of the offense and defense for each game. But again, just one game can chance perspectives. Here is some news for Wednesday.

Are many Seattle Seahawks Pro Bowl-worthy players?

Last season, the Seahawks had four players participate in the Pro Bowl Games. Those were kicker Jason Myers, safety Quandre Diggs, quarterback Geno Smith, and cornerback Tariq Woolen. Six Seattle players were alternates: Linebacker Jordyn Brooks, special teamer Nick Bellore, punter Michael Dickson, wide receiver Tyler Lockett, wide receiver DK Metcalf, and linebacker Uchenna Nwosu. Of those 10 total players, maybe only Dickson and Brooks are worthy of being mentioned as potential Pro Bowl players for the 2023 season.

Pro Bowl voting is now underway for this year and runs through Christmas Day. 12s can vote on players at Seahawks.com. From December 11 through 25, a 12 can also vote on X (artist formerly known as Twitter) several different ways but always by adding the hashtag #ProBowlVote. The players will be decided by a combination of fans, players, and coaches with each having a third of the say on who is a Pro Bowler. But which Seahawks deserve the honor?

Rookie cornerback Devon Witherspoon has 3 sacks, a pick-six, and is the third-highest-graded corner in the NFL, per Pro Football Focus (subscription required), so he might be one. Bobby Wagner is seventh in the league in combined tackles with 113 and he has 2.5 sacks and 5 tackles for loss. Long snapper Chris Stoll has been pretty terrific too (no, that isn't a joke; He was the top-rated LS midway through the season, according to PFF). Other than that, neither DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett rank in the top-25 as far as catches or receiving yards, so it gets pretty thin for Seahawks Pro Bowl voting.
