Are the Seahawks a poorly run franchise?

With the NFL and the NFLPA reaching agreement on several key matters this week, the possibility of getting to see actual football games this fall is increasing. Risks remain to the players, coaches and the season in general, but each step the two sides hammer out regarding the handling of player health and safety is a step towards the 2020 NFL season taking place.

At this point, it appears as though the Week 1 games to open the season will be the first NFL football fans can expect, with the season opening game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans set for September 10. That matchup is set to be a repeat of the AFC Divisional round game from this past season, a game in which Deshaun Watson helped Houston jump out to an early 24-0 lead, only to see Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs rattle off 41 consecutive points in the second and third quarters.

The Russell Wilson led Seattle Seahawks also saw their 2019 season come to a close in the divisional round of the playoffs, falling 28-23 to Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. That game is relevant to a recent rant of Colin Cowherd, who Tuesday opined that the Hawks are a poorly run organization with disinterested ownership that is, and has been for several seasons, carried by Wilson.

During the course of his four minute rant, Cowherd offers his opinion that the Hawks have not done enough to put an adequate supporting cast around Wilson, specifically calling out the team for poor drafting early in recent seasons. He cites the three tackles as a rookie of 2019 first round pick L.J. Collier and the 33 yard per game average, along with zero career starts, of 2018 first round pick Rashaad Penny, specifically referring to Penny as a bust.

That is on top of his critiquing of the team’s construction of both the offensive and defensive lines for the team, and his assessment is quite blunt: Seattle is a poorly run organization that is being carried by Wilson and which would be far worse off without its franchise quarterback.
