Colin Kaepernick Russell Wilson
Well I figured I should say something after this devastating loss while the feelings are still raw. I won’t be joining with the chorus of second-guessers who need to point the finger at somebody as nothing at this point will bring back that winning Field Goal by the Atlanta Falcons. The Seahawks played tough , made a valiant effort and came up a little short after an amazing season that in a couple of months will give us all a lot of hope for next year.
Russell Wilson is definitely the real deal and we are seeing the development of the “changing of the guard” so to speak wherein Peyton Manning, Ray Lew Lewis and Tony Gonzalez type players give way to RG III, Colin Kaepernick and our own style of running QBs led by Wilson. This was not our year to go all the way but next year we will be ready and hopefully we can win the division and have the Hawks play here in Seattle with us the 12th Man there to give them that little edge they needed to go all the way this year.
Of course saying all of this doesn’t make it any easier for fans like me who have been following the Seahawks since they got started in 1976 back in the old Kingdome. I’m not sure how many emotional ups and downs my Higher Power has left for me here on this planet but I’m hoping he lets me hang around till we win it all. Life isn’t always easy but if nothing else being a Seattle Sports fan sure builds character…..Go Hawks!
