Seattle Seahawks

Duck(s) Flying South for the 2015-2016 NFL Season

I’m going to go out on a limb and assume that a large number of Oregon Duck fans, unless you didn’t care about the NFL until Chip Kelly got hired by the Philadelphia Eagles (or still don’t care), are probably Seattle Seahawk...

SportsDesk: Suh to Seattle Is Possible, Not Financially Probable

///

On Friday those that had contracts run out in the National Football League became Free Agents and one name on the list will require some close following for Seattle Seahawks fans. One name that may not specifically be on the their wish list radar may have some interest in playing at Qwest Field.

According to a report from MSN Ndamukong Suh has expressed interest in playing for the 12’s. Suh also has some interest in Chicago and Dallas but would like to play for a winner. The issue could be money for the Seattle Seahawks who currently are looking to sign some of their own to contract extensions including Quarterback Russell Wilson and Running Back Marshawn Lynch, but could you imagine?

If Seattle finds a way to add Suh to the mix on Defense a Super Bowl run in 2015 would likely not just be possible but would be expected from this team. Anything short of that would likely not be accepted. Is that the kind of pressure that Seattle wants? It just may be after winning and losing the big game in consecutive seasons.

Free Agency just started on Friday so there is plenty of time for Suh to decide and for Seattle to find the funds to pony up to make it happen. Stay tuned on this one.

SportsDesk: Seahawks Will Restructure and Rebuild for 2015

The Super Bowl was one of the best games I have ever seen. Regardless of who won or lost. Hands down, the best. Many in Seahawks Nation were sad with the outcome, but let me be one of the first to say – Seattle WILL be back next season. There are plenty of reasons to point this out.

Contract extensions being the first. Key players are due for big paydays in the coming months including Quarterback Russell Wilson and Running Back Marshawn Lynch. Defensive Star Bobby Wagner is also on the list to get a raise. Seattle has also found another way to add to their talented roster.

Pete Carroll will have a ton of selections in the upcoming National Football League Draft. The team will have eleven selections. If you add the conditional picks they will have fifteen. Fifteen spots to add to a roster that does not need much to get back to the top.

Unfortunately the saying ‘One play does not make a season’ will no longer apply in the world of sports. I’m not sure why such a rookie move was made in the final minutes of the game on Sunday evening, considering the amazing play that Jermaine Kearse made off his chest just moments before in catching the ball before it hit the ground.

It was also clear to me that the Seattle Defense was not up to their usual speed and pace with injuries to star players including an elbow injury to Richard Sherman. With a bevy of draft picks in their back pocket Wilson will again lead the charge for the Seahawks, but the road will be tougher as each team looks to get better.

The home schedule in 2015 appears favorable with San Francisco, St Louis and Arizona joining Carolina, Chicago and Cleveland coming to the home of the 12’s. Also making an appearance a Qwest Field will be Pittsburgh and Detroit. The away games seem to be a bigger challenge.

The usual suspects of San Francisco, St. Louis and Arizona will be joined by trips to Green Bay, Dallas and Baltimore. Seattle will also visit Minnesota as they transition to face teams in the NFC Central next season. Dates for any of these games have yet to be announced but I would expect the game with Green Bay to be front and center as it has been the last several seasons.

Now that I have wet your appetite, all we have to do now is wait. The next event for the NFL is the Draft in late April and May.
