I love watching home games and staying down at the stadium all day long (8AM - 5 PM), win or lose.

But away games are another story. If I'm watching at home, I get stressed and either yell or cheer at the TV until
I feel like I' annoying other people. If I go to a bar it's better, especially if there is a lot of good company around,
but the game itself is secondary in those cases.

Yesterday, I just started feeling ill while watching the game - either another long 3rd down given up by the defense or
another failed 3rd down conversion by the offense and had to turn off the TV. I felt so much better then.

Honestly, I had more fun last year (or any year) I had lesser expectation. This year I got caught on the hype and expectation and have been way more disappointed in the poor play that I was able to blow off in the past. The more you think you know, the worse it gets...(in my case)

This. And not to mention, this week really sucked having to listen to Mike Martz.

What a good idea for a post.

If i ever have a heart attack or stoke (too young but thats not the point) it will be while watching a Seahawks game. The only time this season I have relaxed is last in the 4th quarter of the Dallas game when I knew they didn't have enough time to come back.

I have to watch on game rewind most of the time, because im too cheap for sunday ticket and i live in South Carolina, so I'm watching at midnight est time in the dark by my self in my living room usually. This last game from the fake FG on I couldn't bring myself to sit down. The rest of the game I stood up, pacing or swinging back and forth.

The team is extremely stressful to watch since they have flashes of brilliance and yet some of the most boneheaded mistakes you could imagine. Just when I feel like they have a good drive going, Breno Giacomini gets a 15 yard penalty. Just when I think our defense stops a drive, we let them convert on a 3rd and freaking 15.

There have been losses that have still been fun. If we had lost the GB game it still would have been fun to watch. This last St. Louis game was excruciating 90% of the time. My blood pressure must have been unsafe.

Love watching this team, win or lose. Obviously, the wins are more fun, but I enjoy it either way.

I went in to the season thinking that game days would be absolutely amazing. I can't stand to watch. Undisciplined, terrible on 3rd down (both sides of the ball), predictable (run, run, pass, repeat), not blitzing on 3rd and long, not playing press coverage on 3rd and anything. All of this adds up to me being so frustrated that I can barely watch. Am I too emotionally invested?



viewtopic.php?f=2&t=52815


when 2 + 2 continues to add up to 4, at some point we must consider the answer indeed is 4... ;)

an onside kick to start the second half, 3 points down with best special teams in the league and the #4 arguably the #1 defense in the league, really? no other play book in the universe contains that call unde that circumstance, at some point you must consider you CONT call specific plays just to see if they indeed do not work, thats what practice is for

behaving in this manner is an indication of one of 2 things and one of 2 things only;

1. leadership doesn't want to win

2. leadership doesn't posses the skills required to win

please don't get me wrong I like Carrol and I want him to want to win it just appears that when he reached into his bag of tricks it was empty?

I look at it this way. I enjoy the games. If they win, I'm gung-ho about watching football the rest of the weekend, Monday, and Thursday. If they lose, I avoid all NFL TV coverage like the plague.

I usually enjoy watching the games. But some of these frustrating road losses where we somehow snatch defeat from the jaws of victory just drive me crazy and cause me to lose sleep on Sunday night. Oh well its only a game I guess.

If you don't have "fun" watching the Hawks, win or lose, you should probably find some other way to spend your time!

I have enjoyed every single game since 1976-on the tv, in the stadium, even preseason. It is about the journey. Enjoy the journey. If you can't enjoy the journey, then just read the box scores Monday morning for the results. Every game, every play-win or lose. Love me some Seahawks! Go Seahawks!

Yep. Your expectations at this point in time are too high. I don't know how you don't have fun watching this team develop. Unless you are expecting a deep playoff run and a SB appearance.

I'm very happy when I see the defense take the field. They beat people up, and make outstanding plays, and are easily a top 10 unit -- closer to top 5 actually.

I really enjoyed the Cowboys game. That game felt like everything was coming together. The Cardinals, Packers, and Rams games I enjoyed in places.

In terms of enjoyment: 2nd half of 2011 > 2012 > 1st half of 2011.

I'm okay with the passing offense not doing a ton, but it would really help if the team took a few more shots down the field and the defense stopped getting killed on 3rd and long.

I enjoy watching the game, I feel terrible when I dont get to watch the game for some reason, I always go with the mindset that they will win, or there will be good plays. It is hard for me to turn the TV off, if they are not doing well. I feel, they will do well soon and keep waiting, but there is no way I can give up watching the game. I already start waiting for the next one, as soon as the game on Sunday gets over.

I have fun, but I am often left in a very bad mood when they play poorly. It can just be so infuriating. This year has been especially tough at times because my expectations were high, and I disagree with how the team is handling some things. But ultimately I love it and that will never change.

This isn't the 2009 Hawks where they were unbearable to watch. I've had so much fun since Pete took over though and this year isn't any different.

It's always good entertainment. It is good versus evil, the little guy overcoming against the golden boy. It's a morality play. It is a rollercoaster. Feelings of pride, disgust, joy, anger, elation and sadness. My family thinks one day I am going to have a heart attack yelling at the TV screen. I thought I was having one at a Seahawks game when Burleson returned that 90+ yd punt against the Rams.

In the 80's I used to get into really foul moods after a loss and it would last most of the week. Then later, as I started looking at playoff possibilities, I would anguish over each loss that I felt the team should have won. I have gotten better at not taking the losses to heart. I also know to avoid this place after a loss for a couple of days. I do like reading the more level-headed folks view on the game to help ease my mind. Todd and Doug used to always talk me down.

I enjoy this team quite a bit but my expectations are now higher for the defense. Love the smashmouth style they have. I just want other teams and fans to know they have to bring their lunch pail when they play the Seahawks. I doubt that I will personally witness a Superbowl victory. Just doesn't seem to be in the cards. But no need to stop loving the game. NFLN and ESPN make it tough to love the game, since they make you view it in their myopic view of teams that count. But that is another story.

Nothing is more frustrating than 3 and outs or giving up a first down on 3rd and 15.

I usually have fun (even when we lose).. if there are plays to cheer for. :th2thumbs:

Do you two have less than 5 fingers? Because that's kind of sad if you can only get up to 2 or 3 fingers. ;)

And yes, I enjoy watching the Seahawks. I like those moments of anticipation - when anything and everything can happen and nothing feels final even after it happens. If I didn't enjoy it, I wouldn't watch because it is entertainment, and for the most part, I find it highly entertaining.

You know you're one of my favorite posters here Doc. But damn man, I'm pretty sure you're my age (just turned 56) so PLEASE don't say you think we'll never see a Super Bowl win for the Hawks. It's like a knife to the heart to see something like that. In my opinion, if we accept mediocrity, we are doomed to it for the rest of our time as fans of the team (which means the rest of our lives LOL).

Yep, I turn 58 in march. Don't worry about my prophecy, I get the feeling I may only have < 10 yrs left, so long as you live the good life and don't take those corners too fast I think you can count on seeing us make the promised land. I just want all you jokers still breathing to give your fallen brothers a salute as you go crazy. Hee hee ...

Hope you're wrong about the <10 years left my friend. But if not, you can absolutely count on many salutes (and an extra cold one) from me. :thirishdrinkers:
And I am careful in those corners. It's the dumbasses on 4 wheels and even more so, the deer and elk you might be concerned for me about.

There is nothing that could possibly happen that would have the ability to pull me away from watching the Seahawks game. Save for aliens landing in my front lawn maybe, Seahawks football games have ultimate power in my life, and everyone that knows me is aware of that fact.

Since that first game in '76 I've seen nearly every game that has been broadcast. The only exception being a string of 4 games during the Tom Flores regime when I was out of the country. Even then I was able to watch them on tape. When I moved to Texas I got Sunday Ticket right away to keep the string going.

So, yes. I enjoy watching the Seahawks very much. It hasn't gone very well on numerous occasions, obviously, but it makes the good stuff that much better to see happen.

Well, what I particularly disliked about the Rams game in particular from a "fun" perspective was how after the first admirable drive or two that got us all thinking we were in for a relatively easy W, the way it quite suddenly went downhill after that, as if the Rams' D had just discovered and memorized our playbook. Yes, football games are played all four quarters, but talking about "fun watching" here, well, it wasn't "fun" having Porsche-like expectations of the offense after that beautiful first drive only to be given the problematic rickety Ford Pinto show for a large part of the rest of the game.

In general, though, I still have fun watching them because I keep reminding myself that these guys are awfully young right now and hold a heck of a lot of promise -- that we could well be watching them grow and evolve to eventually become a 12+ win team. And I still have fun witnessing the occasional big play.

The occasional ugly bumps are still to be expected, but they should soon reduce in frequency. But for this to really happen, it is critical that coaching and play-calling grow increasingly shrewd and intense. Now that our coaches and coordinators have decent talent at their disposal, they should begin approaching games more like chess matches and not simply rely on mastering alignments, routes, and plays, and getting everyone comfortable with timing and trusting everyone else.

The best talent in the world won't win many games without shrewd and intense coaching and play-calling.

Yes. How the hell couldn't you?! It's the Seahawks! I mean I might get pissed and throw things in the general vicinity of the TV sometimes or be grumpy the rest of the day but Seahawks Sunday is always gonna be fun! It means friends, family, and FOOD. Whats better than sitting down at a random place to watch a game and meeting some new people and cheering for the hawks!

Yeah I can I be stressed out during a game, but to me that's the fun of it! Maybe it's like watching horror movies for some people... (Did not mean for it to come out like that!) I just find it kinda bizarre people wouldn't have fun. I mean I look forward to Sundays and pay attention to hawks more than pretty much anyone I know except probably some of you .netters, and I sure as hell have fun watching.

What fun would it be with out fun?!

Our two road games have been pretty stressful this year. Playing from behind and not looking particularly good in the passing game will do that, especially against division rivals.

If you didn't have fun at the home games I don't know what to tell you. Both have been fantastic, even with the confusion at the end of the Green Bay game.

I love watching the Seahawks play! Sure it's stressful but nothing is better than watching them play well and win! Sets the tone for a great week! Let's hope they can win a lot of games over the course of this season and the next few so we can have lots of great weeks in the future!!

Watching Seahawks is my utmost important hobby. We have family over to the house with all the fixins or go to the CLink and enjoy a weekend in the city. Its my thing. Its tradition.

I get all messed up on liquor and tell everyone how much i hate them or love them depending on the outcome of the game.

It is fun for them.

I have more fun watching the 3 hawks teams Pete has created then the ones Holmgren created.... minus the superbowl team and maybe the 04 team. That team caused me more stress then any other. Talk about talent that had no results.

Nothing more fun this time of year, not even NCIS LA.

Do I hate to lose? yes but love watching them play the game.

I watched every game of the 09 hawks where the entire team quit. They were possibly the worst run defense I have ever seen. I still was excited to watch that team just to see if one week they would show some heart and pride..... In the end Chris Johnson broke some rushing record vs us.
