It could happen.
The Seattle Seahawks trounced the Denver Broncos 43-8 in February’s Super Bowl. While the offseason celebration was capped off with their recent rings, a new season is on the horizon.
And Super Bowl winners have entered slumps in the past.
|Super Bowl Champion||Next Season’s Result|
|2012 Ravens||8-8, Missed Playoffs|
|2011 Giants||9-7, Missed Playoffs|
|2010 Packers||15-1, Lost Div. Round|
|2009 Saints||11-5, Lost Wild Card|
|2008 Steelers||9-7, Missed Playoffs|
As you can see, some teams have struggled after a Super Bowl victory. And in a crowded NFC West, the Seahawks are very susceptible of the same fate.
