On the Sidelines: Seattle Seahawks
*Editors note: This article has been updated since it was published.
So far, what is your impression of this season?
Amanda Milner: It’s hard to tell so far; we had two tough games right off the bat but we held our own against Greenbay, we just lost our momentum. It’s good for us to lose here and there, it keeps us motivated and humble.
Colin Floyd: Not having Kam Chancellor was a huge blow to the defensive unit, but the biggest weakness is clearly our offensive line. However, Tyler Lockett looks phenomenal and Russell Wilson is playing how everyone hoped he would.
Lynsey Amudson: It has been rough, but they are slowly improving. Losing the first two games isn’t a great way to start, but after getting a home game win under their belts, they are starting to look like a championship team.
What are your thoughts on the game post Kam Chancellor holdout?
AM: All I will say is I am ecstatic Kam is back. After the shut out against the Bears, I think the team agrees.
CF: He didn’t make any signature big hits nor did he really make any noteworthy plays and he ended the game with only one tackle. He has not earned back my respect and needs to get back into football shape.
LA: The Seahawks need Kam Chancellor, so when he decided to holdout I thought it was wrong putting himself above the team. Now, the defense looks like they’re whole again; able to force a shut out.
Who do you look forward to seeing more of this season on offense? Defense?
AM: Tyler Lockett and Jimmy Graham, enough said.
CF: With Wilson’s new toys, Tyler Lockett and Jimmy Graham, it’s a must see game. Graham is proving to be a beast in the redzone and Lockett is a threat to score every time he touches the football.
LA: Tyler Lockett has already made a huge impact by returning a record long kick return for a touch down in the Bears match up. He is quick and makes things happen, so I can’t wait to see what more he can do.Super Bowl 50…are we making an appearance for the third year in a row?
AM: I don’t want to jinx anything, and it’s going to be a hard fight to the Super Bowl. If our offense can kick it in gear we have a fighting chance. One game at a time.
CF: The 12th Man and unbiased analyst in me says yes. The 2007 Giants started 0-2 and went on to beat one of the best teams in NFL history. [The Seahawks] will be just fine.
LA: If they continue to play like they did against the Bears and their offense keeps putting in work, I think they have a very great shot at making it to the Super Bowl.
