The Seattle Seahawks finished off the 2021 season by winning two in a row and four of their last six, with the final five games being played without All Pro strong safey Jamal Adams. Adams, of course, was lost for the season when he reinjured the shoulder he had surgically repaired around this time last year, with doctors returning to the operating table to re-repair the torn labrum he had apparently retorn.

Seahawks and Mariners swapped more than just records

The 2021-22 season brought some surprises to the Seattle sports community. On the one hand, the Seattle Mariners exceeded expectations and finished a hair’s breadth outside the MLB playoffs, while the Seattle Seahawks scuffled, landing themselves as a shocking fourth-place finish in the NFC West.

The most significant reversal is obviously that - the Mariners had winning record and the Seahawks a losing record. The last time that happened? 2009....

Seahawks Pro Bowl safety Quandre Diggs looking to be 'fairly compensated' in free agency

The Seahawks defense didn't fare well in the regular season even with Diggs' Pro Bowl effort, and letting him go to another team could only make rebounding from a disappointing 2021 campaign that much harder.

When Seattle Seahawks safety Quandre Diggs went down in Week 18 against the Arizona Cardinals with ankle and fibula injuries, players on both sides of the field were moved to tears. But then the sports world responded with a type of support that speaks the highest praise of Diggs’ character.

Well, at least there’s some consolation for Quandre Diggs’ All-Pro snub.

On Monday, the Pro Football Writers of America released its All-NFL and All-Conference teams, and the Seahawks star (and impending free agent) was the only Seattle player to appear anywhere on the lists, joining Budda Baker as a safety on the All-NFC squad.
