Seahawks fans get early Christmas present


The Seattle Seahawks clinched a playoff spot with their win over the Browns and gave the 12th Man something to cheer about during the holiday season.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and that holds true especially for Seahawks fans.  This year has had its ups and downs, but here we are in December opening the gift of yet another playoff berth.

It isn’t easy making the playoffs in the NFL, but the Seahawks have made it look routine by making the playoffs 5 out of the last 6 years.  Since Pete Carroll has arrived, the city of Seattle has gotten used to the winning culture, and all that success is a reason to celebrate

This team has so much talent that anything less than a Super Bowl victory seems like a disappointment, and it’s great to have such high expectations.

Before Pete Carroll arrived, having this much success would seem like an unrealistic dream.  These days it’s the reality in Seattle, and fans are fortunate to be cheering for this team.

Being able to root for a successful team like the Seahawks is something that should be cherished and shared with family and friends.

You will always remember where you were when Richard Sherman tipped Colin Kaepernick’s pass in the NFC Championship game.

You will look back fondly on the time you watched the Seahawks win Super Bowl XLVIII and who you were with on that magical day.

These memories will last a lifetime, and the people you were with in those moments make it even better.  Being a fan of the Seahawks hasn’t always been easy, but these days there is a lot to be excited about.

This season is still far from finished, but regardless of the final outcome the Seahawks have made us proud once again.  They have found the winning recipe and are playing exceptional team football.

More from 12th Man Rising

Every time the Seattle Seahawks step onto the field the 12s know something special is about to happen.  This team has the grit, confidence and talent needed for success.

So whether you are with family, friends or even by yourself this Sunday as the Seahawks take on the Rams, make sure you realize how special it is what this team is trying to do.

The Seahawks look to get back to the Super Bowl for the third consecutive year, and they have what it takes to achieve this goal.

Championship-caliber teams don’t come around very often, and, when they do, they tend to not last very long.  So make sure you grab a friend, family member or a complete stranger with a Seahawks jersey and enjoy every minute of this upcoming playoff run.
