12th man tweets: How fans see Seahawks vs. Jaguars playing out
By Lee Vowell
Every week 12th Man Rising takes to Twitter and asks fellow fans how they think the Seahawks will do that week. Here are some responses for Sunday’s Seahawks against Jaguars tilt.
The Seahawks take on the Jaguars Sunday in a game featuring two really good defenses. The Jaguars are actually trying to be historically great. Several of their key metrics matchup with the 2013 Seahawks. You remember that team, right? That was the year Seattle won the Super Bowl and their defense carried them a long way in doing so.
Both teams are 8-4 and trying to win their divisions. Each team should be a tough out in the playoffs because of their defenses. So what about the game on Sunday? Here are some thoughts.
This is a very succinct way of putting it, @FrogBoiii. Seattle has indeed started terribly slowly in most games this year. Last week Seattle got off to a very good start offensively and it changed the entire game. The Eagles were forced to throw a bunch more than they wanted and Frank Clark just went off. Another fast start on Sunday and Seattle could put the Jaguars in the same position. And Jacksonville does not want to throw very much.
Luke, unfortunately, has absolutely no faith in Seattle’s offense against the Jaguars. The last time Seattle was shut out was September 17th of 2011. They lost 24-0 to Pittsburgh. Shutting out the Seahawks would be a strong comment in a statement game for the Jaguars. Let’s hope it doesn’t happen.
Our person in Oceanside has a one word answer for what will happen on Sunday, “Pain.” Hopefully the Jaguars feel more of this than do the Seahawks. Too bad Kam Chancellor isn’t playing because pain would definitely be inflicted on someone.
Mr. Reid states simply that Seattle will win and by what score. If you have not followed @ccmreid, you should. He’s great.
My only question for him would be once Seattle gets our hockey team, does he change from being a Canucks fan?
