Seahawks' Bobby Wagner: 'We got way better this year'

Tuesday July 15th, 2014

The Seahawks had a pretty good season in 2013. Not only did they win the Super Bowl, they won in convincing fashion, 43-8 over the Denver Broncos. Still Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner thinks his team will be even better this season.

“I think we got way better this year, because we’re all so young," Wagner said on ESPN's First Take Tuesday morning (via "So we’re still growing. Even Russell [Wilson] — Russell’s still young, he’s still young in the game. We’re all still growing.”

If Wagner is correct, this year's Seahawks team could be truly frightening. Seattle allowed 4.4 yards per play -- fewest in the NFL -- last season and forced a league-high 39 turnovers. Offensively, Seattle ranked in the top 10 in yards gained per play, and had the fifth best percentage of drives ending in a score.
