The Seattle Seahawks season came to an abrupt end Saturday night Arlington Texas following the teams 24 to 22 NFC Wildcard loss to the Dallas Cowboys. While very few people had the Seahawks having a winning season and making the playoffs to begin the season, proving the prognosticators was of little solace as the players said their goodbyes as they cleaned out their lockers Sunday afternoon at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center.
While the season was short of their own expectations the players were upbeat and downright optimistic about next season due to the foundation the team built in 2018.
LB Shaquem Griffin
(On how excited he is for 2019) “Very excited. Being that we’re young and coming up and we showed a lot of teams and we showed a lot of organizations that we’re not the team to be messed with, it kind of gave you that sense of (wanting to) hurry up and get back. Obviously, we’ve got to go through the offseason but I know I’m excited to get back and be around the guys again and get back to work.”
CB Tre Flowers
(On if the young guys have something to build off of) “Oh, for sure. I know we started clicking really towards the middle of the season when we were winning, and we became more than teammates. We were friends and we’re going to keep moving. I feel like we’re going to keep getting better and we’re going to see each other in the offseason (and) keep working out together.”
