Offseason Analysis: Seattle Seahawks
The Seahawks didn’t send Mike Holmgren off on a high note, and left the cupboards pretty bare for new Coach Jim Mora. I’m not sure how much Matt Hasselbeck has in the tank. The team seems committed to Hasselbeck so Seneca Wallace will be waiting in the wings for another injury. Julius Jones was decent, and will likely be the feature back next year, but he was somewhat of a disappointment. Maurice Morris probably won’t be back, and T.J. Duckett will be a TD vulture. It doesn’t look like Seattle will be fantasy friendly for RBs next year. The same can be said for the WRs. Bobby Engram is 36 and an Unrestricted Free Agent. He’ll likely be back. Koren Robinson is in the same boat. As long as he’s healthy it looks like Deion Branch will be their#1 WR. Nate Burleson is coming off an ACL injury so don’t expect much until late. Clearly the Seahawks need to add some young talent here. They have to be hoping that Michael Crabtree falls in their lap. At TE they’re in good shape though with John Carlson, who led the team in receiving in his rookie year. Walter Jones will be back, but they are hurting at Tackle. It’s a position that should be addressed in the draft.
On Defense the Seahawks will probably lose Rocky Bernard. LeRoy Hill didn’t help his cause by caughting caught pulling a Michael Phelps. The priority on Defense will be their front seven.
Doesn’t seem like Football Betting will look too favorable on the Seahawks either.
