On the Seahawks Bandwagon: Week 7

High-fives have been down lately, that’s for sure. Chestbumps, too.

Hardly anyone is painting their face anymore.

Morale is definitely suffering on the Seahawks Bandwagon. I think I first picked up on this last week when a lot of people openly substituted their beer for Pepto-Bismol.

It’s hard to know what to do. We’ve lost too many key players and their replacements have ranged from horrible to abysmal. It’s flat-out depressing. Twice in the last three weeks I’ve completely stopped watching the game to spend time with my family. That’s how bad things have gotten.

Last week, I proclaimed that I could get off the couch, check into the game in my slippers and sweatpants with beer in hand, and still outperform our running back, Maurice Morris. Sadly, it wasn’t even that much of an exaggeration.

When I do watch the games, instead of cheering, I find myself yelling at the TV. And Sunday is supposed to be a day of relaxation. Yelling at people is reserved for the rest of the week.

And things have actually gotten worse. I’m sure you’ve heard that our Pro Bowl quarterback, Matt Hasselbeck, is injured too. Standard. However, we’re heading into Kansas City this Sunday, and there is breaking news that their quarterback might be injured too. Hallelujah! This has given the Bandwagon renewed hope. There is a legitimate possibility that their third-string quarterback will play crappier than our second-stringer.

And that is what we are rooting for this week: less incompetence than our opponent! Go Seahawks! And pass the Pepto!

  1. Well we went into Kansas City against a back up quarterback with an injury. This should have spelled success. In true old school Seahawks fashion what it did spell was the worst defensive performance I have ever seen. Damon Huard throws for 200 yds plus on us. Damn the Seahawks are killing me. We have no excuses for are team sucking and this Super bowl hang over trend of the last five years may be true.

  2. I hear ya. Morale is down. Although I am pretty impressed with Seneca Wallace’s performance. Granted, it wasn’t great, he still performed better than my expectations. All-in-all, it was a good game to watch since the seahawks didn’t just roll over and die.

    As for our defense, I don’t know what was worse: the countless 20+ yard pass plays or the countless 10+ run plays by LJ. ugh. it was tough to watch the defense. It was like we weren’t even there.

  3. Yeah, it was pretty bad. I was listening to it on the radio and the only thing that Warren Moon could come up with is “well, they just aren’t executing, it’s as simple as that.”. I think that he repeated that like 40 times. How is it that any backup or third stringer can play against the seahawks like a hall of famer… what the hell? I know I did, but did everyone else get drunk before the game also?
