Seahawks Season ends in Green Bay

Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks season has ended with a 28-23 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Without the second half efforts of team Leader Russell Wilson, the game may not have been so close.

Wilson Leads Seahawks

Wilson did not have his hands on much of the first half, with the Seahawks going down 21-3.

In the second half however Wilson took over and lead a comeback effort.

Wilson finished 21/31 with 277 yards and one touch down.

That scoring toss went to Tyler Lockett who had nine catches for 177 yards.

Lynch Retiring

Marshawn Lynch did not start the year on any NFL Roster.

However, he did finish the year with a couple touchdowns in his return to the Pacific North-West.

But, the ultimate goal of getting another Super Bowl ring was not fulfilled.

Lynch’s post game presser included comments toward younger players.

Late Game Controversy

Late in the fourth quarter, a game changing play came down to a skeptical referee decision.

Aaron Rodgers completed a pass to Jimmy Graham for a first down.

The nine yard pass however did not look like it made the line to gain on television.

Green Bay went on to run out the clock and win the game.

What’s Next for Seattle

To many other teams in the NFL, The Seattle Seahawks had a successful year.

They had 13 wins and were really only one win away from a wild card bye.

With three picks in the first two rounds, here are some positions the Seahawks could target

  • Edge Rusher
  • Cornerback
  • O-line

The team has been to the playoffs each year that Wilson has been the starter and there is no reason to expect anything less than that next year.

But, once that playoff pedigree ends, then maybe change will occur in Seattle.

But right now, this team will continue to be an expected competitor in January.
