You're just thinking short term. In the second half of the season, if Russell Wilson continues his development along with the O-line, and the defense stays steady, we WILL dominate. But what I'm really excited for is.....
Next season. I know, I know, next season. But I expect even more pass rush next season (big trade up for Jarvis Jones anyone?). We will have an easier schedule. I'm thinking almost an undefeated season. Book it.
Next season, we will be beasty.
Sorry, I thought it was pretty clear, but I was being sarcastic. I absolutely agree with you, though I'm not AS certain we'll dominate this year.
And I'd be rather disappointed if we traded up for a defensive player next year. This offense is just SCREAMING for a playmaker to grow with Russell Wilson, open up the passing game, take pressure off Lynch and Rice, etc. I think that we're reaching the point of diminishing returns on defense - you can only improve so much with a single player, and when you're drafting pass rush specialists just to rotate with other pass rush specialists, I question the actual return you'll see on that pick, even if he's a good player.
On the other hand, if we land an explosive young receiver, I think it would lead directly to an ENORMOUS improvement in our offense.
