Each week during the regular season, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Seahawks fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.We have an offseason edition of FanPulse cooked up for you in this final week of March. For the most part, the juicy bits of NFL free agency are essentially over, and the biggest names area off the market.All 32 fanbases were polled on whether they think their team got better or worse in free agency. This is optimists’ season, so 29 of 32 teams had more than 50% say “better,” including the Seattle Seahawks. However, respondents only voted 57% in favor of better, which is 27th among all fanbases. The five lowest are the Houston Texans (54%), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (53%), Minnesota Vikings (42%), Miami Dolphins (29%) Travis Homer Jersey , and New England Patriots (15%).The Seahawks’ biggest free agent moves were to re-sign RG D.J. Fluker, LBs Mychal Kendricks and K.J. Wright, as well as ST standout Neiko Thorpe, all while adding left guard Mike Iupati to the lineup. They also replaced kicker Sebastian Janikowski with Jason Myers, who had a career year with the New York Jets.However, the major losses that probably split opinion so much would be the departures of future HOF safety Earl Thomas and starting nickel corner Justin Coleman. At a lesser level, third-down back Mike Davis went to the Chicago Bears, and LG J.R. Sweezy departed for the Arizona Cardinals.As for offseason confidence polling, Field Gulls participants are at 77%, which is about middle of the pack. The Cleveland Browns are #1 in that category (and tied for 1st in free agency opinion, unsurprisingly), while Washington is understandably dead-last. For perspective, our Week 17 confidence polling was at 92%, so even after a playoff loss and key departures in free agency, it’s not all doom and gloom.Next week Travis Homer Seattle Seahawks Jersey , our FanPulse will feature numbers (and a graphic!) on who we think is the favorite to win the NFC West, along with a look at the rest of the league’s respective responses. Sunday the Seattle Seahawks suffered a significant blow when they fell to the San Francisco 49ers in overtime of Week 15, however, what could prove to be an even bigger blow to the team’s postseason aspirations moving forward was the loss of right guard Jordan Simmons. Simmons was claimed off waivers from the Oakland Raiders at the end of training camp, and he has filled in admirably for D.J. Fluker both times Fluker was out with injury after Simmons’ addition to the roster. Obviously, there’s still a lot of time to see what Simmons’ status will be for Week 16 against the Kansas City Chiefs, with a playoff spot once again on the line for Seattle. However, against the 49ers on Sunday, the Hawks had to dig deep into their bag of reserve linemen, as Simmons injured his knee late in the third quarter, forcing Seattle to use its third string right guard, Ethan Pocic. That was less than perfect, and led to one of the most pointed critiques fans are likely to ever see of a young player from Pete Carroll. That’s the kind of criticism that Carroll typically reserves for his more seasoned veterans, and so it is quite a shock to hear him so bluntly assess the play of a second year player. Obviously, it came on the heels of a frustrating loss that could have secured the Hawks return to the playoffs Cody Barton Jersey , however, that doesn’t make it any less of a surprise. In any case, Bradley McDougald also left the game with a knee injury. For what is the first time I recall, Pete Carroll also let slip that the knee issue McDougald has been battling all season is patellar tendinitis.That’s not exactly good news, because that’s not an issue that is likely to get better over the next few weeks, and I’d guess that is something McDougald battles all the way through the end of the season, regardless of how deep into the playoffs the Seahawks make it. Thus, it’s on to Week 16, where the Seahawks will once again attempt to clinch a playoff spot, but in Week 16 the Hawks will need help to clinch. Against the 49ers all the Hawks needed was a win to get in because a win would have not only given the team 9 wins, it would have clinched a better conference record than the Washington Redskins. With AFC foe Kansas City on the schedule in Week 16, it takes a Seattle win and a Washington loss to secure a playoff spot.
