At six-two, the Seahawks are in superior shape for a run in the playoffs. To be contenders, they have to have assistance. Any of these 3 players would present a large enhance.
The Seahawks showed they’re playoff contenders in the very first half versus the Falcons. In the second half, they showed they nonetheless have to have assistance to be strong players in the postseason. No one particular desires to see a one particular-and-accomplished predicament like final year. In reality, they’re by no indicates a lock to make the playoffs as the second half of the schedule promises to be tougher than the very first. These 3 players would all make a severe influence on the Seahawks playoff probabilities.
Till a couple of weeks ago, the Hawks have been in quite decent shape and basically necessary some reinforcements. A lot has occurred considering the fact that Jason Myers kicked off in Cleveland 15 days ago. Seattle lost their beginning tight finish, Will Dissly, later in that game. Each left tackle Duane Brown and proper guard D.J. Fluker missed that game and the subsequent, even though each began in Atlanta. In what may well have been the most significant blow, center Justin Britt went down in that game and is most likely out for the season.
So alternatively of adding to their defensive depth, Seattle now faces the prospect of filling two important beginning roles on their offense. Dissly had 23 catches for 262 yards and 4 touchdowns for Seattle. In his absence, Luke Willson and Jacob Hollister have combined for six catches for 45 yards and no scores. That is 50 % of the typical yardage and zero % of the scoring. Each are capable, but there’s a cause Dissly was the starter.
Britt missed one particular snap in the season opener versus Cincinnati. Because then he’s been in the Seahawks lineup for every single play. That is, he was till he went down in the very first quarter in Atlanta. Joey Hunt is a capable backup, but as with Dissly, there’s a cause Britt was the starter. Ethan Pocic can play center as effectively, but like Hunt, he’s a fine backup who can play various positions, not a topline starter.
The Hawks currently picked up security Quandre Diggs in a move that really should spend large dividends for the defense beginning this week. Taking into consideration that Matt Schaub raked the secondary for 460 yards in his very first commence in 3 years, the defensive backfield could nonetheless use some assistance. Diggs will be a good addition, but I do not assume the Seahawks are very accomplished.
