Wyman’s Seahawks Takeaways: Top surprise, disappointment from 2022

Jan 20, 2023, 9:09 AM

After a playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers last weekend, the Seahawks’ 2022 season is over.

All in all, it was a good year for the Seahawks, who finished 9-8 and made the playoffs in a year where many expected them to be one of the worst teams in the NFL.

Someone who actually predicted the Seahawks would go 9-8 before the season began is Dave Wyman, a former NFL linebacker who is now a color commentator on the Seahawks Radio Network and host of Wyman and Bob on Seattle Sports 710 AM.

With the season wrapped up, Wyman hopped in front of a video camera and was peppered with wide-ranging Seahawks questions from SeattleSports.com’s Brandon Gustafson.
