Seattle Seahawks OTA Offseason Workout Photo by Steph Chambers/Getty Images

As the offseason shuffles along, one prevailing point heard throughout our Seattle Seahawks podcast-dom is that the previous coordinators did not properly utilize the talent presented to them. Both offensive and defensive players were mis-schemed and asked to take on tasks either beyond their abilities or experience level. Subsequently, those coaches are not in the building anymore, their parking passes having been revoked. Another oft-stated point heard this offseason is that our new coaching staff is particularly marvelous at getting the best out of each and every player in their purview. Logic would persist that our squad, on balance, will perform much better this upcoming season. What say you? Are the ‘Hawks underrated? Will they surprise the league, and possibly yourselves, by advancing in the playoffs? Or, do you expect more of the same from the ‘Hawks, struggling to hover around .500?
