With only one game remaining on the schedule, the job is far from finished for the Seattle Seahawks.
It feels good to say it, the Seattle Seahawks are NFC West champions. While the job is far from finished, at least they can check off one of their goals in this odd year. As we put 2020 behind us, the most important note that we can take moving forward is that nothing is promised. In spite of all the chaos that went down in 2020, we 12s were lucky to get to watch our Seahawks each and every week, along with the rest of the league for that matter. A lot of unfortunate things hit this country, but we are still standing and will continue to fight.
If there is any team that can embody the characteristics of the year 2020, it would be the Seattle Seahawks. Throughout the course of a single game, 12s embark upon an emotional rollercoaster. Imagine that for 16 weeks? Well, we love it and I personally wouldn’t want it any other way. The point being is that when we look at the 2020 Seahawks and the year in and of itself, it shows that when adversity hits, we must stand tall and come together.
Think of all the frontline works that continue to risk their lives in order to save countless Americans. Think of all the advocates who stormed the streets in many different cities around the country demanding equality. We are at our best when we come together. This Seattle Seahawks team has starred down adversity and has come out on the other side stronger because they stood together and believed.
In the 2nd half of the NFL regular season, the Seahawks defense ranks near the top in almost every category. In the closing weeks of December, the defense put together back-to-back-to-back championship-caliber performances.
Although our quarterback fell out of the MVP race, we must keep in mind that this about winning the ultimate trophy, not an award. What matters is that Russell Wilson shows up when we need him most. To pay homage to the late, great Kobe Bryant, Wilson channels his inner Mamba in the 4th quarter and refuses to be stopped.
This Seattle Seahawks group has come a long way since August. They are hitting their stride at the right time and ready to embark upon another playoff run. With the division title now in the rearview mirror, the Seahawks must focus on getting to Tampa Bay.
We all know it will not be easy, so fasten your seatbelts and enjoy the ride.
