How I Feel About The Seahawks


Liam Rump, Writer

The Seahawks are doing great in 2020. Right now, they have 8 wins and 3 losses and are undefeated on their own turf. They are winning one of the toughest divisions in football and are on track to make the playoffs. The Seahawks are also the 6th best team in the NFL according to ESPN. Even though they are doing so well and might seem like a team that could win the Superbowl, I don’t like their chances of winning it all. I don’t see the Seahawks winning the Superbowl because of one reason, the defense is horrible! The offense is playing great, but the defense needs to play better in order for the Seahawks to make a deep playoff run or take home the Lombardi trophy. The offense has some problems but not as many as the defense. Seattle’s defense is ranked 26th/30 in the NFL while the offense is ranked 2nd. The Steelers who are the only undefeated team in the NFL, have the best defense in the NFL and the 10th best offense. Having a good defense matters! Having a good all-around team matters! If your offense scores enough points, your defense doesn’t really matter, but that is not the case for the Seahawks or any other team in the NFL for that matter. To be successful and win the Superbowl in the NFL, you have to have a good all-around team. Unfortunately, I don’t feel like the Seahawks have a good enough defense to defeat some of the best teams in the NFL. If the Seahawks can’t even blow out the  3 win, 7 loss, and 1 tie Philadelphia Eagles, how are they going to win against big power-houses such as the Chiefs, the Steelers, or the Saints?
