NFL: DEC 12 Seahawks at Texans

Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner expressed optimism about remaining with the team for the 2022 season this week, but that’s not a sure thing at this point and that may mean his final game with the team came in Week 17.

Wagner hurt his knee in that game and he will not play against the Cardinals this weekend as a result. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that Wagner avoid severe damage to the knee, but it is obviously enough to keep him from pushing it in a game that doesn’t mean much for Seattle.

Wagner had a career-high 170 tackles this season. He also had an interception, a forced fumble, and a sack.

Cornerback John Reid (concussion) and tackle Brandon Shell (shoulder) are also out. Tight end Will Dissly (heel), guard Gabe Jackson (knee), and linebacker Carlos Dunlap (ankle) are listed as questionable.

  1. He’s resting up for that multiple Super Bowl run that Russell Wilson predicted…

  2. Top 5 greatest seahawks ever. Class act and a true gentleman! Pray we can do a rework of his contract.

  3. Hope for his sake he gets to play for a contender next year. Ship has sunk in Seattle.

  4. Wagner is a beast. #54 has crushed my dreams on many plays, definitely a player I’ve dreaded to see on the field versus my Cards over the last decade. One of the best to ever do it in SEA and a sure fire 1st ballot HOF player for SEA!!! Wagner, KJ Wright, Kam Chancellor, Earl Thomas, Sherman, Browner, Cliff Avril and Bennett coming off the Edge man those early (2012-2015) Pete Carroll built/coached SEA Defenses were absolutely terrifying and one of the best units in league history particularly the backend/secondary unit.

    All that said all great things must come to an end and it’s time for SEA to rebuild and fire some coach’s. The Hawks offense can probably get by rebuilding just OL and drafting a good young back to pair with Carson along with a good TE. The OL which GREATLY/BADLY needs it as it’s old at key positions, Ethan Pocic is just terrible, it’s one of the worst lines in the league and they have no depth. Once the OL is fixed and you add a little more depth to RB/TE the offense will be ready to roll/compete assuming Wilson stays.
    The SEAs big problem is their god awful defense which needs to be rebuilt very badly and needs work to all 3 levels. The Edge rush is horrible and the guys they do have are all old who will be FAs, no real interior pass rush with a lot of guys hitting FA, at ILB Jordyn Brooks is still very raw and is in development n is one of the worst coverage MLBs in the NFL which is a big issue for SEA in A PASSING League. Wagner is in his twilight years and likely moves on this off season creating another hole for SEA with MLB Cody Barton filling the void until SEA signs of drafts someone. Barton and Brooks are HORRIBLE in coverage I’d bet AZ TE Zac Ertz and a couple of their WRs have big days catching the ball over the middle n down the seams TMRW.
    SEA’s secondary is in even worse shape with a cornerback room absolutely no one fears and they badly need SS Jamal Adams to step up and play to their level he’s being PAID to perform . Since signing in SEA Adams overall has ranked among the worst in the league in the bottom 3rd of SS’s overall and has been worse this year just terrible in coverage. Adams needs to get it together next year because when the Jets make their top 6-8 draft pick the bad Adams trade is all SEA fans will be thinking about. SEAs defense needs rebuilt in the worst way and one Ken Norton the DC needs to be fired and shown the door n escorted off of the premises.
    The massive problem for SEA though is they have ZERO HIGH DRAFT CAPITAL Thanks to John Schneider trade for Jamal Adams which has been a bad move thus far and their cap situation isn’t great given the needs that have with the guys already making noise for more money. SEA doesn’t have the resources to address the plethora of needs they have especially defensively next season so SEA is going to be pretty bad for the next couple of years while they rebuild and that’s assuming the moves they make work but SEA needs to just rebuild as they can’t patch this over/together like PC was talking about as that will just make things worse n won’t fox anything permanently .

  5. Guys like Wagner, Sean Lee of the Cowboys and Luke Kukaly of the Panthers play way past their physical prime because they are smart enough to position themselves and their teamsters to make the play. The later two stayed until it became obvious that their respective teams weren’t going to the SB. That is Wagner’s situation. The Seahawks are several years away from contention. Time for Wagner to hang up his cleats and wait for the invite to the HOF. 1’st year, first ballot HOF.
