Seahawks will learn a lot about themselves in 2022
- This year will be a process
- To those newer fans that are shocked and horrified by what they say from Seattle this week, I’ve got two pieces of advice for you.
- First, get used to it. The Seahawks have a brutal first half of a schedule, and it’s far more likely this Seahawks team is closer to the one we saw on Sunday than against Denver.
- Second, try to enjoy the process. In a give it to me now world, it is easy to forget that the journey is sometimes greater than the destination.
- Pete Carroll built a terrible roster into the most dominant roster this league had seen over a 25-year period, and it took him 4 years, 4 quarterbacks, a few hundred transactions, a 7-9 division champ, a beast quake, an Atlanta heartbreak, and the most intense football game I’ve ever seen in the 2013 NFC Championship. All of that led to a magical Super Bowl destruction of Denver, but that game was over in 27 minutes. It was the journey that made the destination so special.
- How about Tariq Woolen getting the field goal block that led to Seattle’s only touchdown? How about Lockett still being awesome at football? How about Boye Mafe getting his first career sack?
- This Seahawks team will probably be bad, but they are in a much better spot than when Pete and John first took over the franchise. There will be bad losses, but there will also be great plays, and growth in our future.
- The Seahawks have a great chance to be great again, and quick. Enjoy the journey of getting there. The destination will be so much sweeter.
The Seahawks head back home to take on the 0-2 Atlanta Falcons. These Falcons look much better than their record indicates, and this could be a massive game for the future of the Seahawks season. A win and you’re 2-1 and tied for first in the NFC West after three games. A loss to Atlanta, and you can begin the talk about how high of a draft pick Seattle might end up with.
Have a great week you Nesters and Go Hawks!
