Seahawks clad in Action Green for faceoff against Wilson’s Broncos
The Seahawks are pulling out all the stops when Russell Wilson returns Monday night. Clearly, this is not just another regular season game to Coach Pete Carroll. It’s time for Action Green, 12s!
For their Monday Night Football contest against the Denver Broncos, Pete Carroll is summoning all the spells in his grimoire. Richard Sherman is casting his deadly Primal Awareness spell on Tariq Woolen. Pete himself has cast a Nondetection spell on the Hawks starting lineup. Best of all, our beloved Seahawks will be garbed in the Armor of Invulnerability.
For you non-Dungeons and Dragons types, that means the Seahawks will be wearing their excellent Action Green uniforms again. Before we delve into the importance of those unparallelled costumes, let me get back to Seattle’s starting lineup.
Yes, their depth chart has been made public. But as Bob Condotta noted in The Seattle Times, Pete Carroll won’t confirm that he’s actually starting the three rookies list at the top of the depth chart.
Seahawks are nearly unstoppable in Action Green
The only thing that doesn’t thrill me about the Hawks coming out in those outrageously bright uniforms is that they are nearly undefeated, not eternally undefeated. Still, it’s hard to complain about a record of 7-1 in the suuuper-bright jerseys. Even better, Seattle will be going all green for this game. You know how good this looks, 12s!
To make the mojo even stronger, 60,000 Action Green rally towels will be rocking Lumen Field Monday night. As if the atmosphere of a home opener wasn’t enough. Or watching a slew of new stars in their first real action wasn’t enough. Or, beating their former future Hall of Fame quarterback wasn’t enough, either.
Now, will the Action Green unis be the biggest difference in the game? No, of course not. How well Geno Smith runs the offense will be a key to the game. How the rookie tandem tackles, Charles Cross and Abe Lucas, play will be a major factor too. And then there will be that guy named Russ on the other side to consider. Still, I love the mojo that the color brings to the team. I see the Seahawks running their record to 8-1 in Action Green Monday night.
