JuJu is West Coasting

    Well, it’s morning somewhere, right? Isn’t that how it works? Hell, I dunno. Either way, Week 5 has come and gone leaving us with thrills, chills and bone-crunching spills! Among the match-ups from Sunday was a quarterback duel between Russell Wilson and 49er-legend Trey Lance . The Seahawks played well in a hostile environment, including a solid performance from the passing game that had been sorely lacking for several weeks. But it was Kansas City that lost in the 4th quarter and took home the loss, thanks to an outstanding performance from Josh Allen and some key stops on 4th Down.

    I was a little disappointed in the outcome, but I was outright SHOCKED by the reaction from the 12th Man. I logged on to SpikedKoolAid.com Monday morning and found my fellow Seahawk fans throwing in towels, sticking forks in one another, and engaging in all sorts of activities signifying that the season is lost.

    What?! Why? How? Where? Who? Which? Just because we’re ONE GAME out of a playoff spot with SIX GAMES left to play? Just because we’ve lost four measly games? Because of injuries? Are we the only team in the NFL with injuries? I expect that sort of overreaction and hyperbole from the trolls and pitiful ignoramuses who embarrassingly live the lies told to them by the Adusoron Propaganda Ministry … but from my fellow Seahawk fans?! YOU CALL YOURSELVES HOMERS???

    Do I need to copy/paste the season records for the past ten Superbowl Winners? Because the vast, vast majority of them lost MORE than four games. Perhaps the Seahawk fans were spoiled by a 2013 Season where the team was so historically dominant that the rest of the country predicted a Superbowl Championship a full year in advance – Preseason Champions who actually lived up to the hype and delivered a Title. Well that isn’t how it normally works out. You don’t need to be a 13-3 #1 seed to have a shot in the playoffs. You just need to get hot at the right time.

    We’re still the #1 rushing team, a top-three defense, our passing game is showing signs of improvement, and our roster is packed with players who have Championship experience. If we can generate some more sacks and turnovers, we’ll have the same recipe we used to bring home the Lombardi one year ago. So buck up, Seahawk fans!

    Sometimes I feel like, in an effort to identify with our less-fortunate brethren in the NFCW, we are TOO QUICK to cast aspersions onto our own team. We see them complaining about this and that, and we want to take part in the discussion as well. But I think we’ve gone too far. If the Seahawks can handle their business at home, beat Hurtz in Philly, and sweep either Arizona or San Francisco, we can be looking at winning ten or eleven games this year. I’m a believer. Who’s with me?
