Today, I will take another step forward.
Yes, that’s right, today I’m going to chart a path to get to the Seahawks Double digit winbased on their schedule for the upcoming season.
Admittedly, a lot of things have to go right for Seattle to finish the season with 10 wins or more, including:
- The defense should be much better under Clint Hurt and others. than during the reign of Ken Norton Jr.
- The offense should mostly play foul-free football.
- We need a good copy of Jason Myers.
- The team needs to stay healthy – especially when running backwards.
Yes, that sounds like a lot.
It’s a lot.
- KNJ has set a low bar for Clint Hurt to clear it.
- Bet chose a very secure game manager to start from quarterback.
- Myers is very good in even years
- Fingers crossed that our running backs were correct, but we were late for that to go on our way … ¯ _ (ツ) _ / ¯
NB: In even years, Myers was 84 of 94 on field goals (89.4%) – including 24 of 24 and a career long 61-yard in 2020 – and 108 of 118 on extra points (91.5%). In odd years, Myers was 77 out of 96 in field goals (80.2%) and 131 out of 147 in extra points (89.1%).
Now that the caveats are over, let’s look at the timeline for finding a path to double-digit gains — and remember the Seahawks have Fourth place table:
Week 1: against. The Denver Broncos Monday Night Football
I expect us to lose but what if the Seahawks… and Russell Wilson… and the Broncos… and Peyton and Eli on surprise me… Manning Cast …and the NFL world in general? How crazy would it be if the Seahawks pulled out of the displacement?
(I look forward to John B Gilbert’s article “…and Twitter Reacts” if that happens.)
Week 2: In Santa Clara, opposite San Francisco 49ers
The first streak in this game (in June) had the Seahawks underdogs by 8 points. I haven’t checked the updated lines, but I suspect they’ve grown now that Geno Smith has been named as a head start into week one.
However, the Seahawks always beat the Niners, especially since Kyle Shanahan took charge, so let’s call this W and imagine the Surprising Seahawks start 2-0.
the third week: against. The Atlanta Falcons
This is a win. I wouldn’t even be ashamed of that. Atlanta is a mess – even if it’s a quarterback it might be little bit Better than Seattle.
fourth week: In the Detroit Lions
Sure, lions might be favored by a point or two, but that’s only because it’s a home game. The Motown team wasn’t as good last year, and it won’t be much better this year. Seattle can take them.
The fifth week: Down in the bay, in the face New Orleans Saints
Showdown makers are like the Saints in this game but I think James Winston is rubbish. That doesn’t mean I think we’ll win though. We might – I hope we do – but I’ll call this a loss.
the sixth week: at home vs Arizona CardinalsBla de Andre Hopkins (who will spend the last match of his commentary on PED)
Yes, I already gave two reasons why the Seahawks won (home match, no D-Hop) so let’s move on.
Seventh week: In the Los Angeles Chargers
There are two games on the schedule so optimists are fairly certain the Seahawks will lose and this is one of them. (Spoiler: KC is the other.)
The eighth week: against. The New York Giants
Seahawks will be favored in this game, especially if they are leading 5-2. I expect the Giants to win about 4 matches this year and this won’t be one of them.
The ninth week: in Arizona
I’m fine with cleavage (but I pull for a sweep). Just please don’t let anyone get hurt at House of Horrors which is State Farm stadium.
Tenth week: Germany, baby!
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers They are the “house” team and will likely be favored by relegation or so. The game starts at 6:30 AM PST (Ugh!). Let’s put this in the loss column, maybe get some extra sleep, and hope the DVR proves me wrong.
Week 11: Farewell week in Seattle
The Seahawks could be 6-4 at this point…plus or minus a few matches. I’m going with 6-4 though – odds makers are damned in Vegas and over/under 5.5.
Week 12: against. The Las Vegas Raiders
Davante Adams, catching passes from his best friend -slash- college quarterback Derek Carr, will be a lot of fun to watch. But the Conquerors will be knocked out of the road game against the Broncos while the Seahawks will get a good rest. this should Be W.
Week 13: In the Los Angeles rams
There are reasons why I think this could I’m W but I won’t get them in today. Put this as a loss…for now.
Week 14: against. The Carolina Panthers
Pete Carroll and John Schneider clearly don’t think Baker Mayfield was better than their own in-house choices, and I’d have a hard time saying they were wrong. I’m putting this in the Win column.
Fifteenth week: against. The 49ers… Thursday Night Football
Ride or Die for the Seahawks The Niners’ continued dominance with a healthy belief that Seattle is the best “prime time” team in the league…even without Russell Wilson’s lead.
Week 16: In the Kansas City Chiefs Christmas Eve (day)
Yes, it starts at 10 a.m. on the West Coast, and yes, bosses are expected to be pretty good this year (again). But 12 years deserve a Christmas miracle and there’s always one game a year that no one can ever anticipate. this is. could. is being. which – which. Game. (But maybe not.)
Week 17: against. The New York Jets
New Year’s Day is supposed to be dedicated to college bowl games but Not this year. Aircraft do not pose a threat. This is the letter W.
Eighteenth week: season finale against the hated LA Rams, at home
I’ve already laid out a path for the Seahawks to achieve double-digit wins, even if the Christmas miracle goes the other way, so we’ll let the Rams get that win. So far.
Yes, it would take a lot of things in the Seahawks’ way for them to have 10+ wins.
double number wins he is possible.
