I need a little help here. I need help from the Seattle Seahawks and the my fellow twelfth men and bloggers. In this two game losing streak I find myself looking for hope, looking for inspiration, looking for a reason to believe and I need it from you guys.
I’m not looking for excuses to the reason that we have lost two very winnable games and haven’t clinched the division yet and are crappy 8-6. No I don’t want to hear about the injuries we had this season, and I don’t want to hear about the loss of Hutch.
Seattle has the talent and the potential to get to the top to win the Super Bowl but they haven’t been able to show that as of late. I don’t know why but the high powered offense that the Seahawks possessed for the past few years has been really crappy as of late. The line really doesn’t seam to get a push up front for Alexander. Finally they got their act together and learned to pass protect but now Hasselbeck can’t find a receiver and when he does they drop it. We turn the ball over at the most inopportune times and can’t sustain a drive. The defense well they miss a lot of tackles, pressure isn’t always there but this is about blasting the offense.
All this stuff that’s wrong with the offense mind boggles me. In the past few years we have had a really good offense. 2 years ago we dropped balls left and right and we were still a top ten offense. A few years back Hutch got injured and was out but we still had a good offense. A few years ago we got used to getting a big lead so that the defense could blow it in the 4th quarter. Now we have to hope that the defense could hold up before the offense decides to come up with a miracle 4th quarter to win it.
Except for the Cardinals game which was about a foot short every time the offense needed a game winning drive in the 4th quarter we got it. So I kind of know we can do it, but for some reason the offense doesn’t play with that kind of urgency every drive. I don’t know how Hasselbeck can have that much time in the pocket like he has had recently and not find an open receiver, its absurd.
As the saying goes COME ON SEATTLE. Win the next two games in a convincing fashion. Show me that this offense can start clicking. Give the defense a chance to play with passion. Give me a reason to believe that we can make it to Miami.
So my fellow Seahawk fans give me that reason. Reassure me that we can win again and make it to the Super bowl. I know it hurts right now but lets think big, hope big dream big, and maybe come Sunday the Seahawks will give us all a reason to believe again.
