Seahawks CB Richard Sherman confident about team’s future

Monday January 18th, 2016

The Seattle Seahawks just watched their second straight season end with playoff disappointment, losing to the Carolina Panthers 31–24 in the NFC divisional round on Sunday.

Despite watching his team fall behind 31–0 only to come up just short of completing a furious comeback, Pro Bowl cornerback Richard Sherman is confident that the Seahawks have plenty to look forward to in the future.

“We’re far from done,” Sherman said in the post-game interview, according to ESPN. “Guys are just entering the prime of their careers. We can be special for a long time.”

Sherman pointed out the fact that star quarterback Russell Wilson and linebacker Bobby Wagner seem much older than their ages would suggest. The two are only 27 and 25, respectively. 

Much of the team’s core is currently under 30 years old. Of the seven Seahawks named to the Pro Bowl this season, defensive lineman Michael Bennett is the oldest at 30.

Seattle last won the Super Bowl in 2013, beating the Denver Broncos 43–8.
