"We all we got?"
Sat Feb 17, 2018 8:39 pm
  • For years, the battle cry of the Seahawks and the Seahawks alone pre-game was;

    "WE ALL WE GOT!!! WE ALL WE NEED!!!"

    It was chanted as shouts in concert between huddled up Seahawks players to get them revved up before a game. We've all seen the video. So this past season I noticed other teams shouting "We all we got!" I was a bit alarmed but not too much since this is a copycat league, and we all know how many teams have taken fruit from the Seahawks table over the past four or five years.

    But then I heard a team (I can't remember who at the moment but it was in the playoffs) shouting "We all we got!! We all we need!" and I was like, "Really?!?"

    Now pardon me, it's the offseason and all, I get it, but that just bugged me for some reason. Anyone else notice that?

  • I think a lot of teams have been doing that. I think the Saints were saying it way back when, before the Who Dat? chants.

    I don't think it was all that original with us.

  • Say wha?! Is that true?? You mean to tell me the Seahawks were not the originators of that battle call?

    It was the Patriots. Red Bryant took it there, probably, because he originated it in Seattle (I think).

    And yeah, it pissed me off, too.

  • The players carry it with them too. Any backup player switching teams every offseason is going to bring fun routines and chants with him to every team he goes to so after a few years they all are shared and used.

    That is the reason they haven't so far won another Superbowl. They simply do not play as one any longer.

    Show me proof. Show me ONE piece of official footage of an NFL team chanting that EXACT STATEMENT before 2010 and I will send you $50 dollars in the mail. Easy money? I bet not.

    Not sure where to find proof? We were saying that in High School 20 plus years ago ( I believe another guy mentioned they used it in his middle school) Anybody that grew up in this country and has been involved in sports has heard this way before 2010. This is silly, not a big deal but did you not play football growing up in this country?

    It was a very common expression in rap songs in the early and mid-90s (maybe before that too, I don't know).

    Heck, "We All We Got" was even the title and chorus refrain of a Master P song 15 years ago, and the title of a RZA song 13 years ago.

    BB is a football coaching god. No one else follows his example because they do not have the strength of faith in his evaluation that he does. He simply does not vary his approach, and it is exactly what is necessary in the professional league of our times. Treat the team like a College recruiting class, keep only who is healthy and is clearly good enough to be a superior player for 4 more years. Not for 2 years, 4 years or move on. There are a few exceptions, but not many. If you cut or trade a Michael Bennett, you replace him with a young stud who is both hungry and/or accomplished. The same goes for your WR if they are not super special. Tom needs no continuity, HE makes them special. They do though keep great TE's. Great blockers, and really solid LB's. Everything else they rotate them out when payday comes.

    No, not a big deal. I was mostly kidding. I believe you. I just find it strange that I never once in all my 41 years of watching the NFL heard any team chant "We're all we got, we're all we need!" on NFL Films or any other footage until the Seahawks started it in 2011, and I never subsequently heard any other NFL team chant that same exact quote until this year.

    I stand by my original premise. The Seahawks template is the NFL's version of the Butterfly Effect. ;)
