The Seahawks won’t play at CenturyLink Field on Sunday but that won’t stop the 12th Man from showing their pride in San Francisco.
According to CBSSports.com, one hundred Seahawks fans pooled enough money to fly a “GO HAWKS-12″ banner over Candlestick Park before kickoff on Sunday.
The organizer was Cedric James Morris, who made this statement on fundrazr.com:
To show our dedication and support as members of the 12th man…I…propose that we fly a plane with a banner attached that reads “GO HAWKS-12″ over the stadium a little more than an hour before kickoff not just showing San Francisco, but the entire nation that we are the most passionate, the greatest, and the LOUDEST fans in the NFL. The banner would fly for approximately 10 to 15 minutes above Candle Stick!!!…Let’s show the world, and those 49ers what the 12th Man is all about. ARE U FIRED UP? Let’s make this happen my fellow 12’s.
Morris also said that a surplus of funds will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.
The Seahawks can clinch the NFC West on Sunday with a win. They clinched a playoff spot when the beat the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football.
A win would also put Russell Wilson’s name in the history books. With a win, Wilson would become 23-6 as a starter in the NFL and would break the record for most wins by a starting quarterback in his first two NFL seasons. He is currently tied with Ben Roethlisberger, who had 22 career wins in his first two seasons.
The Seahawks have won the last two meetings against the 49ers by a combined score of 71-16.
Both of those games were in Seattle. The last time the Seahawks played at Candlestick was Oct. 18, 2012, where they lost 13-6.
