The Seattle Seahawks will likely start the 2015 NFL season with the same running backs they finished with in 2014. Which is mainly the same crew they fielded in 2013. By 2016, there may be three entirely different runners toting the rock for the blue birds of the Northwest.
With the departure of starting center Max Unger and starting guard James Carpenter, the Seattle Seahawks have serious re-tooling in mind for their interior offensive line. Miss on one or both of the required replacements and those running and throwing lanes will be overrun with jerseys not colored navy blue and action green.
The Seattle Seahawks have decided to play coy with NFL free agency thus far into the 2015 NFL year. That doesn’t mean all’s quiet on the veteran acquisition front. In fact, the Seahawks are exhibiting the same approach as always when it comes to top receiver talent: let’s go shopping.

The Seattle Seahawks are known as a “draft and develop” organization. While this always sounds good to both the personnel executive saying it and to myriad NFL observers, the economic realities of the NFL make all teams “draft and develop” organizations. But that’s not all.

If you’re an NFL wide receiver without a distinguished pedigree, there is one destination that is eager to see what you can do. High draft pick? Pro Bowls? The Seattle Seahawks don’t really require it from their wide receivers and tight ends. Will that change this offseason?
It’s a question worth asking as NFL general managers and their scouting staffs go about restocking their cupboards for the 2015 campaign. The Seahawks have a few roster holes to fill. It’s shopping season — But here’s good news for the 12s: the Seahawks got a jump start on 2015 before the 2014 season came to its gut-wrenching conclusion.
A black day for the Seattle Seahawks and their reputation
On the blackest of black Mondays (you are never farther away from meaningful football than you are right now), the February gloom of Seattle is even gloomier than what this hateful month usually offers. The news and reviews are in: the Seattle Seahawks lost the Super Bowl — and the respect of their peers, NFL observers and fans.
They’re calling it the “hater bowl.” Maybe not in Washington and Massachusetts, but in the other 48 states, there’s a lot of hatin’ goin’ on. See how the NFL’s two most hateful franchises squaring off in the final game of the NFL’s season of discontent will help to unite a nation.
