The Gullies: Vote on the best of the 2019 Seahawks season - Part 2

Over at Bloody Elbow (where I also work as an editor), we have an annual awards poll that recaps the best of MMA from the previous year. This is hardly a unique idea but it’s a popular one for us, and I’d like to try something similar for the Field Gulls community.

Welcome back to the first edition of The Gullies! This horribly named but shamelessly backed award ceremony has reached part two of the voting categories. Part one was all about the players, part two is all about the plays and the results.

The Gullies: Vote on the best of the 2019 Seahawks season - Part 1

Last thing before you get to voting, we may have had an oversight here and there but we didn’t want a laundry list of options to choose from for the sake of it. If you have another nominee to vote for who’s not listed here, click on “other” but state your response in the comments section.

Win of the Year

27-24 (OT) at San Francisco 49ers - In the grand scheme of things, this win did not prevent the 49ers from winning the NFC West or the #1 seed. But the 49ers were favored to win this, they were the NFL’s lsat unbeaten team, and the Seahawks got their annual “big win over a Super Bowl contender” on the road in front of a national audience in a crazy-ass game that marks the official rebirth of this rivalry. Field Gulls staff’s co-choice.

40-34 (OT) vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Bruce Arians has enjoyed beating the Seahawks at CenturyLink Field just about every damn year he was head coach of the Arizona Cardinals. In his first year as Buccaneers head coach, it looked as if he’d continue his success after Tampa Bay raced to a 21-7 lead. What instead transpired was one hell of an offensive shootout that culminated in Wilson’s game-winning TD to Jacob Hollister to cap off what proved to not even be the nuttiest Seahawks overtime game of the year.

37-30 vs. Minnesota Vikings - Monday Night Football, green uniforms, playoff positioning and first-place (at the time) in the NFC West was on the line. Minnesota had the halftime lead, Seattle had a monstrous 3rd quarter and early 4th to seemingly blow the game open. Of course, the Vikings stormed back, but the Seahawks held them off for what ended up being the team’s final home win of the season.

30-29 vs. Los Angeles Rams - On a night when Paul Allen was posthumously inducted into the Seahawks Ring of Honor, the Seahawks fought like hell to give their late owner a key win over the defending NFC champions. After two close losses in 2018, the nailbiting finish went Seattle’s way thanks to Greg Zuerlein’s field goal miss in the closing seconds. Considering Seattle finished two games better than the Rams, “butterfly effect” and whatnot, this kick was the difference between the Seahawks being in the playoffs and missing it entirely. Field Gulls staff’s co-choice.

32-28 at Cleveland Browns - The Browns proved to be terrible but that didn’t stop them from leading 20-6 in lightning quick fashion. Russell Wilson was at the peak of his MVP form and torched Cleveland’s defense, while Seattle’s defense forced Baker Mayfield and the Browns offense into several backbreaking turnovers, including a game-sealing pick by KJ Wright in the 4th quarter.

27-10 at Arizona Cardinals - Only in here because while Arizona beat Seattle at CenturyLink Field yet again, the 2019 trip to Arizona had nothing weird happen. No awful injuries, no Seahawks kicker missing field goals and extra points, it was an unusual Seahawks win in Arizona because it was totally drama-free and the only genuine blowout victory the team managed all year.
