An Historical Perspective on the Seahawks 4-3 Start image

After seven games, the Seattle Seahawks have a 4-3 record. What has this meant statistically in the past when it comes to making the playoffs?

A game over .500 approaching half of the season, does it mean no playoff berth for the Seahawks this year? Not according to the Seattle Times’ Danny O’Neill.

O’Neill went through the first 36 seasons of Seahawks history to look at the team’s record after seven games and what kind of season that foretold. Here’s what he wrote:

The results aren’t shocking. Those years that Seattle started 5-2, it almost always made the playoffs. When it started 4-3, it made the postseason half the time. The Seahawks have never reached the postseason when they’ve had a losing record after seven games.


The Seahawks started six seasons at 5-2 and made the playoffs five times. In twelve seasons, the Seahawks started at 4-3 and went to the playoffs six times. So historically, the Seahawks playoff chances aren’t over, but not a lock either.

The Seahawks travel to Detroit Sunday to take on the Lions. Catch the game at 10 a.m. on AM 1280 and FM 99.3, Newstalk KIT.
