With the Russell Wilson drama out of the way and gladly in the past for all hawks fans, it’s time to draw our eyes on the upcoming 2021-2022 season. What Seahawks team will we see this season? Will we see a contender like we have grown used to seeing? Will Russ have a legendary first half of the season and then fall off the face of the earth for the second half? Heres my breakdown.
When the season ended in the Wild-card round of the playoffs at home against division rival Los Angeles Rams, it looked like the days of competitive Seahawk football was over. The Secondary was not what it once was, and the offense looked stagnant. However, hope wasnt lost for the faithful 12’s. They let go of their OC Brian Schottenheimer and replaced him with former Rams passing coordinator Shane Waldron. They happened to also secure a promising TE in Gerald Everett. The Hawks also gained talent at positions that were lacking at multiple times during the season. OG Gabe Jackson via trade with the Raiders, DE Aldon Smith via Free Agency, and CB Ahkello Witherspoon. They had problems at the offensive line, secondary, and the pass rush and paid attention to those problems. But the real question is, how will they perform?
The Seahawks will be playing their NFC West rivals twice, the NFC North, the AFC South, as well as a few other NFC and AFC teams. They open up the 2021-2022 season at Lucas Oil Stadium going up against Carson Wentz and the Colts. Here’s how I see their Season going
Week 1 : @ Colts – W Week 2: Vs Titans – L Week 3: @ Vikings – W Week 4: @ 49ers – L
Week 5: Vs Rams – W Week 6: @ Steelers – W Week 7: Vs Saints – W Week 8: Vs Jaguars – W
Week 9: BYE Week 10: @ Packers – L Week 11: Vs Cardinals – W Week 12: @ WFT – W
Week 13: Vs 49ers – W Week 14: @ Texans – W Week 15: @ Rams – L Week 16: Vs Bears – W
Week 17: Vs Lions – W Week 18: @ Cardinals – L
This brings the Hawks to a final record of 12-5 Which should be enough to make the playoffs. I feel like how far they go really depends on who they play and where. If they get to the NFC Championship game, that it should be considered a win for fans, but could also possibly see a first round exit. My prediction is a trip to the NFC Championship Game for the Hawks.
MVP: Russell Wilson – Who would have thought? I feel like Russ wont fold in the second half of the season and will lead the Hawks all season long.
OPOY: Chris Carson – Carson will prove he is a top 5 back in the league and post a 1,000+ yard season.
DPOY: Jordyn Brooks – Brooks in his second year will more than be enough to replace KJ Wright and have a breakout year.
Newcomer of the Year: Ahkello Witherspoon – Witherspoon will have a lockdown season and find himself being the CB1 by the mid-way point of the year.
