Exit Interview: Seattle Seahawks
The Seahawks’ run to the divisional round of the playoffs was equally impressive and infuriating at times. Will Pete Carroll ever modernize his approach?
What Went Right
The Seahawks finished with their best regular-season record (11-5) since 2014 and booked a trip to the postseason for the seventh time in the past eight seasons. They beat the Eagles in the wild-card round―the team’s 10th postseason win under Pete Carroll―before falling to the Packers in a divisional-round tilt.
While it was a disappointing playoff exit for the Seahawks, it did feel like this team overachieved relative to its talent and depth. Instead of the transitional season spent rebuilding its young, inexperienced defense that many expected, Seattle marched right back into the postseason; general manager John Schneider often states that the ultimate goal for Seattle’s braintrust is to produce “consistent championship-caliber football teams.” It’s hard not to be impressed with how reliably competitive the Seahawks are year after year.
