    @ Green Bay early
    Falcons at home on Monday Night
    @ Giants as a non 10 am game

    Hate

    @ Cardinals on a Thursday night.
    @ Jacksonville 10 am


    Hard to see this team losing more than 4 or 5 games aginst this schedule.

  • Packers week 1, Giants after a bye, Falcons on MNF, and cowboys week 16. Pretty well spread out too. That's best case scenario IMO.

    Edit: no back to back road games either

    Unless they happen after a bye, thursday games are always a short week, which kind of sucks for the travelling team, but at least it's a west coast team so the travel isn't horrible.

    Agreed. I dont think it will hurt us staying on the west coast basically for both games. That may be an idea for a game on thurs in zona.

    The Texans are as scary as anyone. That is the number one d from last year, and they get Watt back. At least it is a home game. I think they will get revenge on the Packers this year. The Rams have Goff, rookie head coach, lost some d pieces and are converting to 3-4. They may not be as good, but who knows. As always, they will probably lose to one or two unexpected teams. Three or for losses is my pre-draft prediction.

  • The three road games to start the year are a challenge. We have usually struggled in road openers. Secondary and offensive line will need to be hitting on all cylinders. At Lambeau, which ended our NFL-record of consecutive games without losing by more than 10 points, is an intense start.

    Then at Tennessee is a definite trap game. The field will probably be scorching hot. Titans have a great offensive line, a power run game, and a running QB (which is the bane of the 4-3 under defense).

    Rams' defensive line has had our number for a while. The LA Coliseum also tends to get very hot at that time of day. So yeah, that's a definite gauntlet of three tough road openers.

    Hopefully, they overcome the odds and win four or five of those games before the bye. Otherwise, the bye will be a time of drama and course correction.

  • I see a best case scenario at 12-4 unless we can get rid of a few gremlins off our back. The O-line will be the key factor once again.

  • Looks like the NFL is letting up on our Hawks as they come back to the mean average of NFL teams talent wise. Nice to see, shows that the NFL knows the Hawks are good for business and want to keep them in the conversation. Never thought I would say that.

    We do have back to back away games once but luckily they come before and after the bye week which is great.

  • Only back to back road games split up by the BYE. only 10 AM game is against the cupcake Jaguars. TNF game followed by MNF game is great for us, basically a 2nd BYE.

    This schedule is great.

    Well before we say that lets see the draft and which FA's signed after cut downs and the June deadline, things can change quickly, also the Pre Season has a way of changing expectations, with coaching changes and the "I" bug hitting.

    Storylines this year:

    1) @Packers - bitter rivalry continues. It's great to put this as week 1. Pack win, business as usual. Seahawks win, and instant SB favorites.

    2) 49ers - Peak 2017 Seahawk performance here in all 3 phases, as usual. Deja vu from 2016, week 3 except this time maybe Boykin comes in sooner without the need to relieve an ankle.

    3) @Titans - Titans will want to showcase they are for real, and will have a good opportunity to prove it. Delanie Walker has been waiting a long time to play against Seattle and will get his shot.

    4) Colts - Luck vs. Wilson part 2, and if the Colts win, Hawk fans will be miserable as it will be impossible to recover in the Luck/Wilson debate. 49er rivalry renewed welcoming an old friend, Franklin Gore back in the building.

    5) @Rams - It won't matter what is going on with the Rams this year, this will be a struggle for Seahawks.

    6) BYE

    7) @Giants - will Seahawks continue to have Eli's #? Wilson's first big test of the season.

    8) Texans - revenge on the minds of JJ Watt from that bloody nose chasing Wilson in 2013. The 20-0 blown lead. The pick 6. #NeverForget

    9) Redskins - Based off of 2016, would be great game. Hard to say if this one will match up given offseason turmoil for Skins.

    10) @Cardinals - Cardinals looking to get their first home W against Hawks since Wilson's first NFL game. Rule change prohibiting leaping will push them over the top for that W.

    11) Falcons - Seahawks will play this one tough....maybe their most intensity for this season. People will get reminded why Century Link is such great HFA.

    12) @Niners - This far into the season if the 49ers have rebounded, this has potential to be a real fight. Schematically this will be the best the 49ers offense has been presented against the Seahawks since maybe Mike Singletary's last season. Shanahan knows winning this game can make the season for Niner fans, and will pull out the stops for it including using Gilliam on the goal line.

    13) Eagles - last two times the Eagles faced the Hawks, they appeared to be the hotter team or at least capable of winning and then falling very short. Eagles will try hard to change that perception but won't be easy.

    14) @Jags - Gus built up the pieces but can Coughlin and Marrone improve on it. Chances are they can, and this will be the upset special to pick from April if we are led to believe Bradley's coaching was undermining all of that defensive talent. You throw in 10 am on the road and the temptation to place early money is there....

    15) Rams - Another tough game for the Hawks, but winnable. Carroll goes for it on 4th down a few times to protect Jonathan Ryan.

    16) @Cowboys - a chance to see if Cowboys still have Seahawks #. All eyes will be on Dak & Elliott, assuming Dak isn't suffering from a sophomore slump.

    17) Cardinals - pressure on Seattle to win a home game against the Cards for first time since 2014.

  • It's too early to make any serious predictions. We're still a week away from the draft. Hypothetically, I think they are capable of winning 13 games with this schedule if the draft turns out as well as expected and they stay healthy. The magic number is 12, as usual, but 13 is possible with the talent, experience, and coaching this team possesses.

    Then again, I could see them losing as many as three games in the first five, while they figure things out with the offensive line and secondary, and then they would need to win out the rest of the way to reach 13.

  • With our Oline, 11-5 at best, but 10-6 is more realistic.

    Only 1 10am game and maybe just 2 games against teams coming off bye (Texans & SF)

    I want that schedule design with Wagner as my wallpaper. I don't like the Jimmy Graham one on Seahawks.com. Also, the last time Wagner was on a schedule wallpaper we won the SB. :2thumbs:
    Where can I get that twitter one?

    What? This has to be one of the dumbest statements this offseason, and that is saying a lot. This debate is so heavily in favor of Wilson at this point, it isn't even close.


    7) @Giants - will Seahawks continue to have Eli's #? Wilson's first big test of the season.


    First big test of the season happens week 1.

    10) @Cardinals - Cardinals looking to get their first home W against Hawks since Wilson's first NFL game. Rule change prohibiting leaping will push them over the top for that W.



    Again, what? You can't possibly believe this statement.
