Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Monday, January 23 — about your Seattle Seahawks.

Seahawks Special Teams Ranked No. 2 In Rick Gosselin's Annual Rankings

There are three phases to the game of football - offense, defense and special teams, and a big factor in the 9-8 Seahawks' playoff berth was their special teams play, resulting in kicker Jason Myers earning his second-career Pro Bowl nod. Analyst Rick Gosselin breaks down why Seattle’s unit as a whole ranks No.2 on his 2022 Special Teams Rankings

From total points scored, to return yardage, to punts downed inside-the-20, Gosselin uses 22 categories to evaluate all-aspects of special teams play. He breaks down Seattle's annual appearances at the top of the list to start off the decade. 

It marked the third consecutive season the Seattle Seahawks have finished in the Top 3 in Gosselin's ratings under special teams coordinator Larry Izzo.

Seattle comes in second on Gosselin's rankings for special teams play with a score of 269.5 points.Based on Gosselin’s system, the lowest point-total serves as the best special teams unit, as the Seahawks sit 14.5 points above the Houston Texans (255). As Myers hit a career-high 34 field goals, punter Michael Dickson recorded a career-low 3 touchbacks, while averaging 48.5 net yards per punt in year-five.

Last week, Seattle signed Myers to a four-year extension. With two great legs in place and coordinator Larry Izzo getting the best out of his unit, special teams is another strength for Seattle going into a crucial offseason.
