Above-average position groups, young roster with untapped potential, a couple of descent QBs to pick from, and a (mostly) raucous fanbase! What’s not to like about the Seattle Seahawks’ open HC position? Whomever takes on the the role, their will be a lot to play with in regards to talent, scheme, and support from ownership and fans. A lot can be said about the state of our team, but I would say most of us keep the belief that if a smart, determined, and clever coaching staff takes over, there is a real chance that the ‘Hawks find quick success. Stay tuned to Field Gulls for all pertinent data.
