NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The general sense one could get from Seattle Seahawks fans at-large is our expectations have varied wildly these past few years. Year One of the Geno Project, most fans would have told you that 4 to 6 wins would be a success. Last season, our expectations elevated to 10-12 wins, and a postseason victory. Oh, how we sway! Next season, with a new coaching staff and a re-tooled roster, I’m curious, where are your expectations at? Do you still need more time to estimate the new staff? Are playoff victories required of the new regime year one?
