This 2023 season is about to begin! So what do we expect from our Seattle Seahawks this season? First off, the Seahawks have a much different quarterback situation this year than they do last year. We talk about Geno Smith and how our expectations have shifted since this time last year. One of the reasons why we're optimistic about Geno is because of all of the players in the supporting cast. Seattle has a potential star at running back with Kenneth Walker to go with a pair of receivers who don't get nearly enough credit nationally.
Reflecting back to last year's defensive performance, there is one area where we want to see a repeat and one thing that has to chance for the team to have success. If the Seahawks can keep their sack numbers around where they were last year, that would be a huge help. But if they can't rebound from being the third worst team against the run, then it's going to be another long year defensively.
After the break, we talk about our expectations for where the team finishes this season. Who are their biggest challengers in the NFC? Will they look to face off against the 49ers in the playoffs once again? We hit a big milestone as we celebrate 10 years of podcasting together. We started the Sea Hawkers Podcast back in 2013.
Sean Payton of the Broncos needs to do better and stop banning effective headwear from the Broncos facility. The Seahawks need to do better and go back to having an effective tailgating area so they can challenge the Packers for one of the best pregame cities. Better at life honors go out to Richard Sherman for taking his career full circle. He'll now be able to routinely remind Skip Bayless face-to-face just how much better at life he really is.
