2 Really BOLD Predictions for upcoming 2018 NFL Season
- The Seattle Seahawks will finish last in the NFC West.
Crazy Right? Maybe not... The Seahawks lost a multitude of players this offseason on both sides of the ball. Especially their legendary defense. Seattle lost the following players on defense: CB Richard Sherman, DT Sheldon Richardson, DE Michael Bennet, CB Jeremy Lane and CB DeShawn Shead. Some pretty damn good players that are no longer in Seattle. With these departures, its safe to say the Seattle Defense will be average. They still have some stars left like Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas but they are getting older.
On the offense side of the ball they lost a big weapon in TE Jimmy Graham to the Packers. The Seahawks already lacked offensive weapons and now its even worse. Russell Wilson literally carried the offense last year as he accounted for about 80% of the teams offense last season. On top of losing Graham, Their offensive line is still suspect and projected to be one of the worst again next season. Their o-line is currently ranked 26th in the league according to numberfire.com
The NFC West isnt to tough compared to other divisions in the NFC but the Seahawks still have competition. The Rams are my projected #1 seed in the NFC next year. (See the NFC season predictions here
- Both LA teams will take #1 seeds in both conferences.
