Russell Wilson leads this Seattle Seahawks team as the starting quarterback, and didn’t leave any backup play needed like some of the other starting quarterbacks this season. Brett Hundley has been there backing up just in case. Despite the Seahawks drafting Rashaad Penny in the first round, it was Chris Carson and Mike Davis to pick up most of the work. Carson rushed for over 1,000 yards this season as the RB1 in Seattle, while Davis leaped over a few names to get to the backup running back role. J.D. McKissic wasn’t a factor, and C.J. Prosise spent most of the season where he usually does, the injured list. After Paul Richardson and Jimmy Graham signed elsewhere in the offseason, we questioned where the targets would go. Doug Baldwin wasn’t healthy this year, but was the WR1 when he was able to suit up. Tyler Lockett took a major jump into the WR2 role this season, leaving David Moore and Jaron Brown as sporadic WR3 players. Because the Seahawks were so run heavy, and played good defense, they were able to mask having two undersized WRs as their top threats.

Preseason Analysis: Seahawks Turning Back Time

Seattle is in a tricky scenario, as they continue to go through quite a bit of turnover. With Russell Wilson under center, anything is possible, but there isn’t a lot around him right now, and the defense is not what it once was. The offensive line was one of the worst in football last year, and they went to add a blocking tight end and offensive linemen in the draft. They also added Rashaad Penny, who is a talented back out of San Diego St. Failing to establish a lead back, Penny could be that guy. Chris Carson showed some promise in a small sample size last season, and the same goes for backs like C.J. Prosise and J.D. McKissic. Penny will get first crack due to his draft spot, and overall talent. The receiving game is in a bit of a crossover outside of Doug Baldwin. Tyler Lockett has some talent, but has been your prototypical Seattle wide receiver that is undersized. Jaron Brown came over from Arizona, but health is always a concern. He could end up seeing some time as their WR3, but nothing promised at the moment. With Jimmy Graham out of Seattle, Ed Dickson looks like the one who will be getting looks in the red zone.

After five consecutive seasons of playoff appearances (and 10+ wins), the Seattle Seahawks slipped to a 9-7 W-L record in 2017, acceptable for most NFL teams, but an undeniable disappointment for head coach Pete Carroll and Seattle's rabid fan base. In the run-up to the 2018 season, the Seahawks find themselves at a crossroads, with significant personnel changes (in both players & coaching staff) contributing to a much different-looking squad than the one that's been the NFC's winningest since 2012. Gone are "Legion of Boom" standouts Avril, Bennett, Chancellor, Sherman (and maybe Thomas), presenting quite a challenge for new defensive coordinator Ken Norton, who'll try to retool an anemic pass rush and find suitable replacements for at least 3/4 of a once-feared secondary, the unit expected to have the most hotly-contested roster battles. The LB corps, led by Wagner and Wright, is without a doubt the strength of Seattle's defense, but with so many new faces surrounding them, they run the risk of having to do too much. Developing all-important chemistry, a trademark of the 2012-16 squads, is another critical factor facing Norton.

During Seattle's dominating five-year stretch, the offense, at best, hasn't been explosive, but consistently steady behind QB Russell Wilson. The bad news is Wilson was the leading rusher in 2017, never a statistic conducive to offensive balance (or success.) To address the issue, Seattle used a first-year draft pick on Rashaad Penny, a big, durable RB who also has speed. His addition and hoped-for quick adjustment to the pro game could/would solve the RB problem. Seattle also spent big bucks upgrading the O-line which was injury-riddled last season. The receiving corps, led by Doug Baldwin, has talent, but isn't deep, and TE Jimmy Graham's defection via free agency robs Wilson of a reliable safety valve, a role the team hopes FA signee Ed Dickson can fill. New offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer has talent on hand, but as on defense, patience will be needed as the new faces find their places in adapting to Schottenheimer's philosophy, heavy on West Coast offensive schemes and formations. Regardless, Wilson's versatility and leadership skills will be featured. Special teams play, normally a strength under Carroll, also disappointed in 2017, particularly in the kicking game. The team is counting on FA addition, veteran PK Sebastian Janikowski, to regain his once-feared form after sitting out 2017 with a back injury. P Jon Ryan has been solid, but could be challenged by strong-legged fifth-round draftee Michael Dickson. The return game should be more than capable with Trent Lockett always presenting a threat, while rookie RB Penny had 7 TDs on kickoff returns at San Diego State. Pete Carroll has always been an elite motivator and player-friendly coach; skills that will undoubtedly be put to the test in 2018 as his Seahawks embark on a new era. If he can guide this squad back to the top of the highly competitive NFC West, it would be perhaps his most impressive accomplishment in an already Hall of Fame-worthy coaching career.
