The Seattle Seahawks could be in serious trouble if they don’t come out and perform in their match up Sunday with the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers enter the game with a 4-0 record and a ton of momentum on their side. While the Seahawks seem like a shell of the team that went to back to back Super Bowls just the previous two seasons before. Russell Wilson has regressed from the player that won the Super Bowl two seasons ago and that regression was clear in last year’s Super Bowl as well. The guy is so caught up in the glam and glitz of being a star NFL player that he has failed to realize the Seattle Seahawks are 26th in the league in passing. Now to be fair some of that drop is due to losing Max Unger and James Carpenter upfront on that offensive line. Still it seems like this team has had one problem after another all year long. Whether it be Wilson putting himself above the team by being attention hungry, Kam Chancellor holding out, or Marshawn Lynch getting injured. Even the trade for Jimmy Graham didn’t pan out in their favor. Yea they added a dynamic playmaker at tight end, but they also gave up Unger and had to watch Carpenter walk out the door as well. Give credit to Pete Carroll for doing the best he can to keep this thing together. He always says the right things, he always seems to be the glue that holds things together when this team is on the verge of a meltdown. Without that charisma and positivity Pete brings to the table. This whole team would of fell apart a long time ago. While very talented on paper this locker room is full of ego and not easy at all to manage. That ego works in the Seahawks favor most of the time, lately it has not. You hate to see a team that has had such a dominant reign implode. Sooner or late though all reigns come to end. That is unless Pete Carroll can save this franchise yet again.
