Hometown Hero?

Posted: August 4, 2011 in General

I can’t ever say growing up I was an avid Seahawks fan.  I guess you could call me indifferent, as being a fan would entail loving them no matter what.  i do appreciate the fact that we have a NFL football team.  As I get entrenched in my studies of fantasy football drafts the Seahawks have given me a few reasons to get excited.  Yes last year they won the division, and yes last year they went 7-9, but their offense beyond the Mike Williams surprise and a few weeks from Lynch was terrible.  Hasselbeck has been old since 2008 hence the 34/44 td/int ration since then and he hasn’t played a full season in 5 years.  Since the beginning of last year the Seahawks have upgraded their running game (Lynch), third down back (Leon Washington), receivers (Mike Williams and Sydney Rice), tight end (Zach Miller), offensive line (Gallery and others), and finally their quarterback (Tarvaris Jackson).  First of all this is a huge upgrade from an old, fragile, stagnant quarterback to a young, mobile, strong armed one.  So for this team the upgrade is huge, but from a statistical stand point i believe the Seahawks are on the verge of becoming a middle of the road offensive team.  It has been awhile, but the last time Jackson got a chunk of playing time in 2008 he came up with a 3-1 record and 8/1 td/int ratios.  His new top 3 receivers stand at 6’4″, 6’4″, and 6’5″.  The best part is they are all pretty good, and add an ok running game to the mix Jackson and former Seahawks QB’s go from not drafted to a solid backup with an upside of QB2.
