Throughout the 2022 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.
Below you will find a Week 1 roundup for the Seattle Seahawks in our consensus 2022 NFL Power Rankings.
ESPN -- Rank: 24
Pete Carroll could have a hot seat if the Seahawks fall apart in 2022 because coaches don't always survive back-to-back bad seasons. But another season with double-digit losses would probably mean that Lock either didn't play well or didn't even win the starting job in the first place. Whereas Carroll is signed through 2025 -- he's one of the NFL's highest-paid coaches, and their contracts are typically guaranteed -- Lock's rookie deal ends after this season, meaning the Seahawks could move on easily if he doesn't show that he is worthy of a longer look as their starter.

The bad news: Pete Carroll is finally going to get to play his preferred style of ugly, grind-it-out football.
Nugget to remember: Geno Smith will make his first Week 1 start since 2014, thereby setting a modern record for hanging around. The record for years between Week 1 starts for a quarterback this century is seven, which Josh McCown accomplished in 2014. Congratulations to the Smith family.
