Needless to say it is do or die time for the 2021 Seattle Seahawks. In any other year it's already over, the fat lady had sung at 3-6. This year, they still have a shot but they have next to no margin of error left if the post season has any realm in reality. Split the remaining divisional games and win out the rest and there's still a chance we could sneak in at the 7th and final wild card slot.
Unbelievably, that scenario is still in play even if we lose again this Sunday to the Cardinals. (We would have to beat them in Arizona however). Murray said that he is close and thinks he is going to play Sunday. That will be a significant factor in a win or loss projection. However, even if Murray does play, you can't convince me he will be at 100% strength on that ankle. But a less-than 100% Murray can still be pretty lethal and injury aside, he's been on pace for an MVP year all season.
Our D has shown significant improvement as of late which is a great sign. Of course our O has been a crap fest lately and the only shot we have this Sunday is if Russ plays significantly better football. He doesn't have to be 4TD, 75% Russ to win, but he does need to be 2-3TD, no INTs, hovering around 70% Russ to win, and that includes a much more balanced attack where he is not needing to complete more than 22-25 passes or so.
Strangely, I am going with a win Sunday. I predicted we would lose in GB last Sunday simply because that is our personal Black Hole for whatever reason, regardless of roster or year. Sunday I think is the game we start fighting back and the O, while hardly "Back", will show signs of life again.
Aros' Fearless Prediction: Seahawks 24 - Cardinals 21
Aros' Fearless Record: 5-4
