The Seattle Seahawks are about to embark on a long NFL season. And whoever runs the official US Open Twitter page knows this and isn’t shy about throwing it in the face of Seahawks fans. The tennis account responded to a Seahawks fan who said tennis was not a sport. They removed that fan, franchise, and QB Drew Lock in one sentence:
Even the US Open doesn’t believe Seattle is ready to head into the 2022 campaign with Luke under the middle. Any outspoken Seahawks fan will tell you the same thing. When the great NFL loses their Twitter sparring sessions with a tennis tournament, you know it’s a bad situation. And that’s what the Seahawks own now.
The US Open continued trolling by posting a countdown to the top 40 NFL QB for Chris Sims with Luke coming in last. Yes, the supposed QB1 ranked 40th in the ranking of his position. Which prompted the US Open to ask the question:
Aren’t there only 32 teams in the NFL?
Since trading Pro Bowl QB Russell Wilson Receiving Lock, draft shots, and players in turn, the Seahawks have done a lot to apparently improve the signal caller position. No one believed it at first, but Pete Carroll was determined that Luke would be the man to step up to Seattle. At least for next season.
Seattle isn’t even going to get Baker Mayfield out of Cleveland. Healthy Mayfield is undoubtedly a best choice (including Geno Smith) than any QB currently on the Seahawks list. I felt like they were waiting to see if Brown would do it baker cut, but that hasn’t happened yet. The Mayfield option becomes less likely with each passing day.
This is one of the worst seasons in Seattle under Carroll. Since arriving in 2010, Carroll’s Seahawks have not won fewer than seven games in a single season. From 2012-2016 they won at least 10 matches each year. Carroll and the Seahawks haven’t had consecutive losing seasons since their first two years as head coach.
I feel confident that Seattle will lose a lot more than they have won this season. This is a clear. I don’t think there is a way this team can win seven games. They will be lucky to get six wins. By playing in the NFC West, there’s a good chance they won’t win a single match. Seattle wasn’t great last year, but they still had Wilson to go back to when he was healthy. Things could quickly get ugly in Seattle with Wilson gone and Luke running the show.
So, given what kind of season the Seahawks could be in, their fans might want to pack it up and be a little more humble. They probably won’t, but maybe you should leave tennis alone. It didn’t work out well this time.
