The Seahawks have a tremendous player on their defensive front in Michael Bennett. Bennett recorded a career high 10 sacks in 2015 and a career high of 52 tackles. Those efforts were good enough to propel Seattle back to the postseason and while the team fell short to the Panthers in the divisional round. The team wouldn’t have even made it that far without the production of Michael Bennett on their defensive line. This is a player who imposes his will on opposing offenses and is consistently in the offensive backfield. That means teams playing the Seahawks have to prepare the whole week for Michael Bennett and then they have to go and do their best executing that game plan. That is never easy to do when you get on the field and play against a guy like Bennett because at times he is nearly unblockable. The team’s success defensively all starts with Bennett and he makes it easier for the guys behind him to make plays. The Legion of Boom can’t intercept passes if there isn’t a pass rush upfront. Bobby Wagner and KJ Wright can’t flow to the ball as freely if the team can’t win in the trenches. Michael Bennett really is a big reason a lot of that stuff is possible and there is a reason Bennett is rated a 95 overall in Madden. That is because Bennett consistently dominates at the professional level and he is really showing no signs of slowing down. If the Seahawks can plug in some good youthful defenders to plug the hole left by departing linebacker Bruce Irvin, then the Seahawks will certainly be able to hold their own defensively. That is because the Seahawks know they are going to pressure the quarterback and they know Michael Bennett is going to show up and do big things. He’s as good as they come.

  10. I wish to be considered a cop when I’m older and We was told I would get something called a london weighting payment of
    £2,277 is this added monthly? The London Weighting Allowance is certainly
    to help provide up a person’s salary to complement the price of living here in London which is certainly higher than the rest of UK.

    However, the allowance described (£2,277) is an annual sum and not a monthly one – pity.
