At that time of the year, the analyst will choose who will win the department. At this time a year ago, the hope of the San Francisco 49ers was to enter the 9-7 playoffs at best as a wildcard. As we all know, 2019 is much better than expected. Is that a fortunate? The Blascher report seems to be so.
Five analysts chose who they thought would win the NFC West Championship, and three chose the Seattle Seahawks. As of earlier this week, Niners won the division championship with +110. These odds are high, I bet. Seattle’s odds are +225. There should be a big gap between the two. However, the Seahawks are still the Seahawks, as long as they rank third, you can expect Seattle to become a pain point for the San Francisco team.
In recent years, with the development of the transaction, Seattle’s defense has been considerably improved. This transaction brought full occupational safety Jamal Adams to the Emerald City. But its hopes for 2020 remain where it has been since 2012: quarterback Russell Wilson.
As Mike Sando wrote for “Sports”, at least one NFL offensive coordinator believes Wilson is a quarter of quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
“If Wilson played in Kansas City, people would call him the best quarterback in the NFL. If Mahomes was in Seattle, they would say:’God, this guy is really good, but you want them Can give him a chance at the beginning of the game,” the coordinator said.
This year, having an MVP-level quarterback may be more important than ever.
Jimmy Garoppolo and Jared Goff performed well, while Kyler Murray was on the rise, and Wilson was the gold standard in the NFC West.
Before acquiring Jamal Adams, Seattle had the best player, but the 49ers may be the next five or so players. Adams helped bridge the gap, but there is something called blocking and rushing to passers-by. One team gets better in both aspects, while the other gets worse.
I don’t think people will underestimate Wilson, who is the second place in the NFL Top 100 list. Everyone knows that he is a special player, and this is the only reason Seattle is in this position every year.
The Seahawks almost won the division, just as the 49ers almost won the Super Bowl. It does not work like that. You can’t use “ifs” in football the way people use “interceptable passes” or “almost” statistics. What I want to learn is that everything is balanced.
What every analyst ignores is that Ninier overcame a difficult situation last year. Injury luck is very real in the NFL, and teams that avoid injuries in the regular season tend to enter the playoffs. San Francisco did this, despite taking a hit in some of its most critical positions. Fighting tests should help this young team, and you know they will be hungry for the end of the season.
What are your chances of winning the division for the Seahawks this year?
