Shaquem Griffin Color Rush Jersey , but in an era of needing to funnel content out at all times, ESPN has already provided us with extremely early predictions for the 2019 NFL season. Their panel of columnists and analysts were asked who would win Super Bowl 54 in Miami, as well as who would be league MVP.This is behind the ESPN Insider/ESPN+ paywall, so I can’t give you everything, but I will give you the Seahawks related snippets. Kevin Seifert is going bold by having Russell Wilson as the 2019 regular season MVP, citing his excellent 2018 campaign despite a run-first approach.Now I’m of the opinion that the Seahawks offense’s consistent habit of starting slowly just about eliminates Wilson from the MVP race before it can really begin. I imagine he’d have gotten votes in the 2015 season if they didn’t go the entire first-half of the season without scoring more than two offensive touchdowns in a game. But hey Bradley McDougald Color Rush Jersey , trends can be broken, and if the Seahawks passing offense gets into gear early in 2019 and keeps that pace up, we could see Wilson in that MVP conversation.Unsurprisingly, Patrick Mahomes topped the predictions tally, with four of nine panelists picking the Kansas City Chiefs star to repeat as league MVP. Aaron Rodgers was the only other QB to receive more than one vote, while other MVP predictions went to Drew Brees and Andrew Luck.As for the “way too early” Super Bowl LIV pick? Well again Brett Hundley Color Rush Jersey , very early, free agency hasn’t started, but why the hell not? Former Seahawks beat writer Mike Sando, now an ESPN senior NFL columnist, has got Seattle in the Super Bowl... except they lose to the New England Patriots again.The other predictions included the Los Angeles Chargers over the Chicago Bears (from Matt Bowen), the New Orleans Saints over Houston Texans (Dan Graziano) Richard Sherman Color Rush Jersey , and unsurprisingly multiple analysts went with the Kansas City Chiefs over the Los Angeles Rams, while KC Joyner went Rams over Chiefs. Yes, KC picked KC to lose.I’m sure we’ll be bringing up national media prognostications throughout the offseason, so this is just the start. Will anyone dare pick a terrible season for the Seahawks again? You’re all on notice. There was a report that the chances of a trade involving Seahawks defensive end Frank Clark had died down a week ago, but it flared back up again a short time later and appears to still be very much alive.A recent report pegged the Bills and Jets as teams interested in making a deal for Clark, but it appears there’s some buzz connecting the Chiefs to a deal as well.In this week’s Duane Brown Color Rush Jersey , Peter King projects the Chiefs trading the 29th and 63rd picks to the Seahawks in order to acquire Clark. Albert Breer of SI.com also has the Chiefs as a team to watch closely in a Monday column and mentions the Seahawks are looking for the first- and second-round picks that are included in the projected trade.Both reports mention Clark’s guilty plea for disorderly conduct following a domestic violence arrest as a potential issue for the Chiefs after recent incidents involving former Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt and current Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill. Both also agree that the Chiefs’ need for a boost to their pass rush could trump other concerns before Thursday night is out.
