Blythe, I look at as a teacher more than a starter. The Kyler Fuller is down right a head scratcher. That made no sense.
That's a good question for offensive line coach Andy Dickerson.I'm not even trolling..... WHY did you sign Austin Blythe? He will get bullrushed and abused as your starting Center. We let him walk a couple of years ago so Brian Allen could replace him, and Allen is only serviceable. This does not bode well for the Seahawks playoff chances, in 2022 but leans more toward the #1 overall pick in 2023.
There's a difference between giving the team a chance and making ridiculous claims like guaranteeing we make the playoffs on March 20th after trading away our franchise QB.
At least the negative Nellies on the board have objective reasons about the current state of the team and roster as to why making the playoffs is a long shot.
Good for you and others for being positive. But you can't fault fans from laughing and criticizing these sorts of ridiculous threads.
Be prepared for them to be against us. The NFL will be against us this season. We cast aside one of their favored sons in their *cough* prime. *cough* With the way the NFL has set up the rules now, we have committed something akin to treason. They will have to make an example of us to forestall others from committing such a heinous act.A few things needed to happen for our current roster to go to playoff this year
Zebras found reasons to like us
Yup, we neutered their favorite son alright, haha, we shall aim to do it again since the same team got another league's favored son. Time to sharpen that neutering knife.Be prepared for them to be against us. The NFL will be against us this season.

Yup, they will flip flop and then act like they never said it.What's funny is the people saying the Seahawks will make the playoffs this season are going to he the same people when called out midseason will say: "What'd you expect? It's a rebuilding year!"
No, duh, we tried to tell you.
Football is different from basketball, and no reason to compare the greatness of Russell Wilson who is unlimited with Michael Jordan who never claimed to be unlimited. Jordan did single handedly willed his team to championships, by not missing game winning shots, OK I will leave it at that.Can't blame people for being optimistic. But it just isn't likely.
When Michael Jordan left the Bulls, people talked about rebuilding. But they never got close to where they were again.
We had a great QB for 10+ years, so we were a consistent winner for 10+ years. We no longer have that so we no longer will be a consistent winner anymore.
Earlier, we were disappointed in not winning division games. Now, we will probably be very happy to occasionally make the playoffs. Maybe make a good showing in a next-round loss in the playoffs. That is it.
If we get another great QB, maybe we can be a consistent winner again. But the odds are pretty low.
The NFL has built the rules and framework so that the key component of a winning team is a great QB. We had a great QB, so we won. We don't anymore so we probably won't.
We ARE clearly rebuilding. The question is into what? We don't really have the roster for a 3-4 D but we are moving into that. Our best offensive weapons are WRs but we have no QB and one of the worst OL in the league. (This will be interesting)
So now what?
We have to hope we find a great QB next year. Just like 20+ other NFL teams. Fingers crossed.
If we don't win at all in Sept and Oct., some folks will start missing those 'politics'. Heck, some already have on dot net.Well, at least we get to watch Football this fall - and not the politics that had taken over the team for a few years here.
