Seahawk Fans Expecting Blowout in Week 1

Recommended Posts

So I was talking to a couple guys I work with from Seattle today, and they are not even remotely concerned with the Panthers in Week 1.  Their comments basically revolved around things like "We should just hope their defense doesn't injure any of our guys because they are so nasty" to "I doubt you guys can even top 200 yards in offense against us" to "Russell Wilson is going to carve up your joke of a secondary (which does have some legitimate plausibility) to "Cam will be pouting with his towel on his head by the end of the game."

 

Heck, one of them didn't even realize they played us Week 1.  I think most of their fans are solely focused on their home opener in Week 2 against the 49ers.  They have certainly fallen hook, line, and sinker on the Super Bowl hype out there.  I hope that is the case, because I think they are in for a rude awakening.

 

I told them both the Panthers Defense was nasty this year too, and they better hope they can protect their 5'10" Golden Boy back there.  Oh yeah, and there is that small detail that we should have beaten them last year had Cam not made the worst throw of his professional career to Hartsock in the endzone. 

 

Anyway, prepare to be disrespected big time over the next 2 weeks.  Seahawk fans and the national media are going to promote this game as basically a fifth preseason game for the Seahawks as they prepare for San Fran in Week 2.

 

Opening Day can not get here fast enough.  Here's to proving everyone wrong.

we are an afterthought.

 

i think the defense can do ok, but i'm not liking what i've seen from our offense this preseason. they have every right to be that confident. they have looked really good.

I think the players are too.

Does any team overlook opening weekend?

 

I mean some show up unprepared in general, but no one overlooks opening weekend.

Seattle fans aren't worthy of a good team. This stupid NFC West circlejerk they have going with the 49ers is lame as hell.

i can see them being more interested in week two.

 

they've got the 49ers in seattle. it's a more important game.

I don't really blame them. A lot of people think they're the most talented team in the league while our offense can barely even move the chains. If they aren't careful though they're going to fall into the same trap that we did last year though; having massive expectations and then after week 1 feeling like absolute poo.

Russell Wilson is still making very questionable throws, and he was sacked TWICE by a d-line that only has a gifted pass-rusher in Clay Matthews. I believe this will be a tight game, as long as Cam doesn't turn it over.
