Seattle Seahawks and the Draft

Sunday, May 8th, 2011

Little late, but my thoughts on how the Seattle Seahawks did in the NFL draft.

To start, the Seahawks have a lot of holes, offensive line, defensive backfield, and quarterback. I’m not saying Matt Hasselbeck is not good, he is, but he is getting near the end of his career and the Seahawks need to think of a replacement. No quarterback drafted, but the other positions were filled with draft choices. I’m not always sure they drafted the best available person at the position. Time will tell if they did get the right players.

The Seattle Seahawks,  the only NFL team to make the playoffs, won their opening playoff game against the defending champions the New Orleans Saints. Today they travel to Soldier Field to play the Chicago Bears. It will be a tough game but the Seahawks won their earlier this year and can do so again. If they do win they will host the Green Bay Packers at home for the NFC championship.

Go Seahawks!

On The Seahawks Being 7-9

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

Some people have been complaining that the Seattle Seahawks, winners of the NFC West with a 7-9 (i.e. losing) record should not be hosting playoffs game. My thoughts? The Seahawks won their division and one of the perks of winning is you’ll get to host at least one home game. Get in by a wild card and you’ll most likely be playing all of your games on the road, the exception being if the wild cards teams end up meeting for the conference title.

In the past teams with worse records have hosted games against teams with a  better record. The main complaint now is one of the teams hosting has a losing record. People may not like it but I see no need for a rule change. They won their division and to the victors go the spoils.
