The 2011 NFL season for the Seattle Seahawks has come to a close. Although they ended up with the same 7-9 record as last season, progress has definitely been made in the Pete Carroll regime. Looking back, how did we fare this season and what’s next? Let’s take a brief position-by-position look.
An argument could be made that the quarterback position during 2011 was a mess. Tarvaris Jackson threw for 3,091 yards (20th among quarterbacks), along with 14 TD’s (22nd) and 13 INT’s (17th), hardly impressive numbers. Charlie Whitehurst started one game, and showed he’s clearly not the quarterback of the future.
