The Seahawks may be turning the corner of health with the expectation that All-Pro center Max Unger will be back on Sunday against Tennessee.
Pro Bowl left tackle Russell Okung is out with an injured toe. Right tackle Breno Giacomini has an ailing knee that forced him to the sidelines early in Seattle’s 45-17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
No matter what they do in these playoffs, the Seahawks are built for long-term success and will be a factor for years to come.
Coach Pete Carroll predicted his top aides might be sought by teams looking for coaches, so he surely was not surprised when the Philadelphia Eagles came calling about defensive coordinator Gus Bradley. And he would not be surprised if offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and assistant head coach Tom Cable get calls either.
Center Max Unger has been a key to the Seahawks’ third-ranked rushing attack, as well as a steadying influence for rookie QB Russell Wilson and a revolving quartet of guards.
The Seattle Seahawks put up perhaps its most dominating performance in franchise history, rushing for a season-high 284 yards while creating eight turnovers and setting a team record for points.
The Seahawks have invested three high draft picks on guys they expected to spearhead the rebuilding of the offensive line, but those three have had very little to do with the development of the unit.
Seattle Seahawks fans might want to consider stocking up on Skittles.
