Hawks get ready to feast on hibernating Chicago Bears

Seahawks flying high above expectations

Due to conditions beyond my control, this Mariners baseball blog has been temporarily drafted into service as a Seattle Seahawks fan blog…..

While I am sorry for the inconvenience, duty calls as all-hands will be needed on deck, if indeed our Hawks are to continue their improbable flight towards Dallas and the Super Bowl one victim at a time.

This Sunday Pete Carroll and his cavalier crew will be descending on Chicago to try to feast on a group of  Bears who have been hibernating for a week enjoying a bye as a result of being the #2 seed.

  As we speak Matt Hasselbeck and the other Hawks are starting their preparations down in Renton, as one more time our guys will need to figure a way to out-flank the chubby Bears next Sunday at Soldier Field in front of a crowd that will not be as friendly as the masses gathered here Saturday.

   Meanwhile here in Seattle, folks are getting into the spirit of things as we once again dare to believe that the long Championship draught just might come to an end in this the most improbable of all seasons. Small business owners will be posting more signs of support for our team, along with random fans wearing  jerseys of their favorite players all week. Things happen fast in situations like this and one must be prepared to take any opportunity to get in the game and show some hometown spirit.

   I have broken-out my ” Fremont the Left-Wing of the 12th Man Sign” and posted it in the rear of my car and am planning on heading down to 12 Seahawks Way in Renton to show some solidarity to our team as they prepare this week.

What will you do to help the cause? Are you in it to win it? Now is the time for all good Seahawks fans to come to the aid of their team and the city they represent. Don’t be shy let your imaginations and hearts soar like the majestic birds our team is named after. We have waited a long time in this town for some real sports excitement, and out of nowhere it is here so let’s make the most of it before the moment slips out of the grasp of the great Seahawk spirit that is carrying this team in its talons all the way to Dallas via Chicago then back to our home nest! 

   While the whole 12th man thing  may seem hoaky at times, it has an effect on our boys on the field and since they are traveling this weekend we need to do all we can this week to show our team we are indeed as hungry for a Championship as we are for Sun this time of year. And yes we can get a little zany, but you would be to after waiting 35 years for a Super Bowl win……Go Hawks! http;//jeffsmariners.com

  1. In the spirit of solidarity, I will at least join the group of raptors — by cheering tonight AGAINST the Ducks and FOR my beloved Auburn Tigers. War Eagle!

  2. What would ever happen if you had to move away from Seattle?

    You’re scary loyal to Seattle Teams.

  3. John, I don’t pretend to be a neutral sports journalist. Im definetly loyal as Im sure you are to the Ducks…Jeff

  4. I’m dreaming big once again because in sports one of the most powerful and unpredictable forces is momentum. It’s all about which team gets hot at the right time. And our Seahawks are red hot at exactly the right time.

    Whatever happens, I was lucky enough to be part of the crowd that caused a minor earthquake in and around Qwest Field during Lynch’s “Tremor” run, and, as a somewhat freak of nature hometown crowd that already had some national attention for noise levels that L&I could probably site someone for, we now have the added credibility of creating an earthquake. Go Seahawks!

    Oh and that was the worst “game-winning field goal with no time left” National Championship game I’ve ever seen. If you would have told me the game would end with a game-winning field goal, I would have expected a much better game than that garbage I sat through. At least the Oregon Zeroes lost, but I also can’t stand Auburn and their running back, I mean quarterback Fig Newton. And if I see one more run/option/read play I will vomit. TCU-Stanford would have been a MUCH better game between two better teams.

  5. Scott, I agee about last nights game that I sat through. Unfortunately one of the negative consequences of attending Saturdays epic game here in Seattle, is that we may never be able to sit through a mediocre game again, or at least for awhile. Im hoping to head down to Renton to show support for our guys today as they prepare. Was thinking of going to Chicago but am going to save my money for the big one in Texas…..Jeff

  6. I was bored at work and did a little research into the whole “NFC Worst” argument. Since 2005, up through the wild card playoff round this year, here is how each division has faired:

    AFC North: 11-4
    NFC West: 9-5
    AFC Each: 8-5
    AFC South: 7-9
    NFC East: 9-12
    NFC South: 6-7
    NFC North: 5-6
    AFC West: 4-6

    Since and including 2005, the NFC West has participated in more playoff games than half of the NFL divisions, have won more playoff games than 5 of the NFL divisions, second best playoff winning % , and has represented the NFC in the Super Bowl 40% of the time.

    What a terrible division right?

    Go Seahawks!

    • Sorry, these are each divisions’ playoff record since 2005.

      • Scott, Thanks for doing the research.Not to worried about winning the media war as I am more interested in winning the battle on the ground at Soldier field Sunday. We will always get the short-end of the debate out here in Seattle until we win it all…..Go Hawks!
