The Seattle Seahawks saw their 2018 season come to a screeching halt on Saturday evening at AT&T Stadium, as the 24-22 loss to the Dallas Cowboys ended their season and any hopes of a fairy tale Lombardi. However, even with the current version of the Seahawks having cleaned out their lockers on Sunday, there are plenty of former Hawks around the league that fans can cheer on. Or cheer against, depending on how one feels about those former Hawks.

Here’s a look at some of the former Hawks that will be in action during the Divisional Round next weekend, starting with the Saturday games.

AFC Divisional Round

Indianapolis Colts at Kansas City Chiefs:

  • Pierre Desir, CB - Colts
  • Mark Glowinski, G - Colts
  • Marcus Johnson, IR - Colts
  • J’Marcus Webb, IR - Colts
  • Ron Parker, S - Chiefs
  • Spencer Ware, RB - Chiefs

Dallas Cowboys at Los Angeles Rams

  • Rod Smith, RB - Cowboys

Los Angeles Chargers at New England Patriots

  • T.Y. McGill, DT - Chargers
  • Brandon Mebane, DT - Chargers
  • Russell Okung, LT - Chargers
  • Troymaine Pope, RB - Chargers

Philadelphia Eagles at New Orleans Saints

  • D.J. Alexander, LB - Eagles
  • Michael Bennett, DE - Eagles
  • Golden Tate, WR - Eagles
  • Chris Maragos, S - Eagles
  • Max Unger, C - Saints

It’s likely that I missed a name or two, so if there is anyone that I missed, please feel free to add the name in the comments section.

Personally, I’m rooting for either the Colts or the Chargers from the AFC and will be cheering on the Saints from the NFC. I’d love to see Drew Brees win a second Super Bowl and ride off into the sunset, and not just because I don’t want the Seahawks to have to play him in 2019. Brees has been phenomenal for the past decade and a half, and he has been a personal favorite of mine since his college days. That goes into a story about the 1998 college bowl season, a story in which roughly three readers would have an interest, so I’ll forego retelling it here.

In any case, while the season has ended for our Seahawks, there are still plenty of former Seahawks out there to root for. Or against, your choice.
