Russell Wilson Heaps Praise Onto New Offensive Coordinator
The Seattle Seahawks have made the playoffs in each of the last three seasons and there is no doubt that they have the offensive firepower to get back there again in 2021. In fact, starting quarterback Russell Wilson is even heaping on praise to the team's new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron.
The Seahawks will attempt to run a fast-paced offense that confuses opposing defenses and improve on 28.2 points per game they scored last year (No. 7 in NFL). Wilson threw for a career-high 40 touchdowns during the regular season, but the Seahawks failed to surpass 20 points in a Wild Card round loss against the Los Angeles Rams.
Defensive coaches in the NFL are getting smarter every year and are able to figure out plays based on the film the team watched throughout the year. The Seahawks strategy last year was simply missing creativity when it came to formations and player alignments. Waldron hopes to change that.
Waldron is entering his eighth year of NFL coaching experience and last served as the passing game coordinator for the Rams. Over Waldron's four years in Los Angeles, the Rams ranked within the top 10 in passing yards three times and top 10 in rushing yards three times. He knows how to run a balanced attack.
All things considered, the Seahawks have the pieces in place to be legitimate Super Bowl contenders in the fall. Seattle currently has the ninth-best odds to win it all set at +2300, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
