Seattle Seahawks make USA TODAY Sports midseason...


The Seattle Seahawks sit at 6-2 at the halfway mark of 2019 NFL regular season. While dropping two home games so far, Seattle has shined on the road, posting a 4-0 record for the first time since 1980.

Quarterback Russell Wilson is making a very solid case to earn this year’s Most Valuable Player and the team as a whole is keeping up in the ultra-competitive NFC West.

Mike Jones of USA TODAY Sports took a look at the clubs around the league and separated the elite from the rest of the pack at the midway mark of the season. He divvied the bunch into what he calls the “contenders,” the “pretenders,” and teams that could become “x-factors.”

The Seahawks, he believes, will have their fatal flaws exposed as “pretenders.”

“Russell Wilson is having an MVP-caliber season,” Jones starts. “Seattle boasts a strong run game in support. Young pieces on defense are finding their way under the direction of Bobby Wagner – the best middle linebacker in football. But although Seattle can cause a lot of people problems, this team almost looks like it’s a year or so away from making a legit run. Another play-maker could help, but the trade deadline came and went without the Seahawks making such an acquisition.”

Jones doesn’t exactly provide a lot of fodder as to why Seattle made his “pretenders” list other than to mention the Seahawks’ lack of movement at the trade deadline, which could also be said of nearly every other team in the NFL.

He states this might not be the Seahawks’ year, but fails to acknowledge their winning record to start the season, one of the better franchise performances to date.

The Seahawks like to play with chips on their shoulders and Seattle fans feel equally rallied by negative reviews. With one of the toughest second-half schedules in the league, the Seahawks can prove Jones wrong if they continue their winning ways.
