Seattle Seahawks Won’t Repeat in 2014
The Seattle Seahawks had an amazing year last season as they showed their dominance in their Super Bowl victory over the Denver Broncos. The problem is that teams only get so much time to celebrate their accomplishment. While the Seahawks still have key players in place in Russell Wilson, Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas, it should be said that they lost a ton of key players and that will be the reason why they won’t repeat in 2014.
Much of Seattle’s success in 2013 came because of the pressure their defensive line gave them. Red Bryant and Chris Clemons are gone, and they were key parts on the defensive line. Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond also left in free agency, and they played key parts in the secondary. On the offensive side of the ball, the Seahawks lost Golden Tate, who was their best receiver in 2014. Another thing to remember is that Marshawn Lynch is getting older and his body has taken a toll because of the hits he has taken over the years.
By losing key and experienced players, the Seahawks will have to rely on unproven players like Bruce Irvin, Byron Maxwell and Kevin Norwood. The Seahawks still have an extremely talented football team, but they are lacking enough experience to get back to the promised land again. This offense still has a shaky offensive line, and despite having Wilson calling the plays, there’s not a lot of talent at the skill positions around him. The Seahawks will likely win the NFC West again, but it’s hard to see them winning the Super Bowl with the San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers emerging in the NFC.
