Despite what many thought would happen after a tumultuous 2018 offseason, the Seattle Seahawks managed to impress and rode yet another strong season from quarterback Russell Wilson to a playoff berth.
It’s reminiscent of what the Seahawks did earlier this decade, prompting up-and-coming and less-known players into prominent roles in which they thrived, particularly on defense.
Still, the Seahawks managed to have a great defense, too. EDGE Frank Clark, who needs to be re-signed this offseason, was stellar. And linebacker Bobby Wagner arguably could be the best at his position right now.
Oh, and Seattle’s offensive line surely benefited from the absence of former O-line coach Tom Cable. Wilson, who was still under pressure aplenty in 2018, should be thankful.
The Seahawks spat in the face of today’s pass-happy NFL, instead electing to use a stout running game and physical defense to pull off 10 wins last season.
That’s a similar formula Seattle used to great effect not long ago.
