"And if you make the 50 yarder, you get to go for another 2 pt try. And if you make that you get to go for a hail mary to add another 6 pts. Then the process repeats itself. poo I just dropped my coke. Wait. The mic isn't still live right? I'd like that part of the interview taken out. "
lots of good comments and I sincerely thank you for keeping it civil
biased of course, but I think the 12th man thing is one hell of a marketing idea on one hand...but for those of that have been fans for many of years, I think it's also a really cool thing that the team did for the fans etc.
I simply don't believe that extra noise gets pumped in...but I could be wrong I guess...but I've never seen or heard evidence of it happening.
I see it more like this...they hype up the noise so much on a regular basis that it almost becomes like a challenge every game to maintain that level or increase it...if that makes sense? I also honestly think that the team and staff truly buy into the homefield advantage and the 12th man and I feel it's with sincerity when they give the fans their accolades.
I also think Wilson is the real deal. Is he surrounded by all sorts of high power receivers...not at all. Yes Lynch makes a huge difference and he benefits from the defense obviously, but he has this trust about him that at any given time, he's just going to take over and make things happen. I also don't think he's fake...I think what you see is what you get. I know many players are huge in their communities and Wilson falls into this too. Every Tuesday for example he is at the Seattle Children's hospital...and it's not to make an appearance...he's there visiting and encouraging the kids etc...he's never made it feel like he's there for a check in the box or for himself etc.
You get civil comments because you're a respected poster here just with bad taste in teams.
If you were a fan of a team that just beat us and signed up for the forum after the game to ask this question, you would probably get some fug off replies.
I like everything but Russell Wilson. Feels like I'm listening to a lying politician when he talks. I like his agility and ability to get out of pass rush. Loved seeing him getting his clock cleaned in Green Bay game. His passes make me cringe more than Cam's do on an off day. Usually his receivers find a way to bail him out or be completely open. Think his success will be short lived.
Holding the Packers to 6 points when they should have had 14 early in the game came back to haunt them. Great comeback, true. But Seattle's defense gave them a CHANCE.
It's something that sets Seattle's defense apart from ours. Ours wears down if the offense isn't eating up the clock. Seattle's keeps making plays even though they spend the game on the field while their O shits the bed.
