Any Seattle fan who's still whining over the 'Hawks' loss should feel ashamed. The Team has gone to two straight Super Bowls and are one out of two. Seattle has a great QB and a supporting cast of players. If you're still upset with the loss, your city should lose the team just like you lost the Sonics.

This is true... unless they get off to a bad start next year. There is a history of teams suffering a defeat like that and not recovering. If there's problems next year, everything's going to circle back to that 1 yard line.

I don't have any love for the Seahawks, but I haven't really seen that many Seahawks fans complaining about the loss - it seems that it's more fans of other teams that keep bringing up the play. I think the outrage is more manufactured from the outside than actually happening within the fanbase. Then again I tend not to follow the NFL much outside of the Bears and the NFC North, so I could be completely oblivious to what's actually going on.

Nope, no complaints. Still the most successful team in the past couple years. This one doesn't hurt like the first one because a) we won the title the year before, so eh. and b) this one was a case of two good teams playing a great game and the opponent just made a hell of a play at the end, not a case of referees making it clear Seattle wasn't to win throughout the game. Legitimate competition is fun, and the team still has plenty to look forward to.

That's just narrative, not reality.

This year they started 3-3 and things worked out OK until that one play.

The Titans got stopped at the 1-yard line against the Rams. All they did the next year was go 13-3. They lost in the playoffs to the Ravens, who basically killed all offenses they came across that year. Now, they'll undoubtedly have to deal with questions about the bullsh*t narrative, but the team's been pretty good at dealing with bullsh*t narratives so far.

I hope there's not a last-minute audible; Wilson is a franchise QB but I would love to have him in Houston.
 
2015-03-21 3:26:26 PM  
Addition to my tangent about the Titans:

Man, the year they made the Super Bowl they were 13-3 and didn't win their division. But the crazy part about it is that the Jaguars, who won the division at 14-2, were undefeated for the entire season (and postseason) against every team but Tennessee - the Titans beat them in both regular season games AND the AFC championship game.

Damn, that would piss me off if I were a Jags fan. WHY THE F*CK DO WE HAVE TO KEEP PLAYING THIS TEAM!

I wouldn't go that far. He is solid, but he regressed quite a bit last season. I mean, I would sign him to a contract if I could because a NFL-caliber quarterback is pretty damn rare, but I wouldn't say franchise QB.

First of all, losing a Super Bowl is incredibly painful. Am i over it? No. Am i in the fetal position crying? No.

Maybe when your sad sack team finally make it in 11-13 years youll know what it feels like.

As for the Sonics, we didnt "let" them get away, they were deliberately stolen the day they were sold because Howard Schultz wanted to team the region a lesson...mainly that we had the gaul to tell a Billionaire no when he wanted a brand new stadium not 10 years removed from a 250 million remodel, with Stern himself in attendance at the All-Star game saying what a beautiful stadium.

The new owners said theyd stay if we bought them a 500 million stadium they knew we'd say no to, and left. If we'd said yes? Memos leaked later said they wouldve sold/flipped the team and bought someone elses to do the same thing.

Now maybe the next time you wont look like such a confused, ignorant little troll.

But wouldn't fans of any team that lost the big game in any sport be at least a little whiny immediately after the loss? If you're an avid fan it's pretty heartbreaking. I'm just trying to look at it objectively instead of saying "lol Seahawks fans, what babies." I know after the Bears lost the SB in 2007 I biatched about it. Not blaming the refs or badmouthing the Colts or anything, basically just lamenting the loss. Every fanbase does that and I don't get why the Seahawks fans are singled out. Sure, they have a good amount of bandwagon fans, but any team that has experienced recent success has had that, and I can't hold that against them.

I was in Vegas last week wearing my Seahawks hat, five d-bags walk past me on the strip chanting "shoulda ran it", I turned around and said no thanks I'll pass"..bunch of monday morning quarterbacks. Did the end of the game hurt? sure, but we're over it and the fact we signed one of the best tight ends in the game helps ease the pain.

IMO, the best sports fans are the ones who can appreciate a certain gallows of humor in respects to their own team's farkups, particularly if performed on such a grand scale. To their credit, most Seahawks fans I know by...maybe that following Tuesday (it took a good 24 hours to stew over probably) were already cracking their own quips about it.

Wilson has had time to step back and look at his options. He can either choose to negotiate to a very good spot,that wins him all he wants, or or he can simply and safely throw that away and get the franchise tag which is still a very big pile of cash and a chance for a better outcome later.Wilson is no idiot making this choice..  Im sure he will make a great pick in the end.

Well, it's actually a team option year, so a franchise tag wouldn't be involved. He can play this year for cheap too if he wants. THEN they'd have to franchise him if they want.
