Two teams that beat us and a road game? I won't take any game for granted at this point
People look at the trends and justifiably say, "I won't believe the Hawks can win on the road until they do so."
But at the same time, many of those same people refuse to say, "I won't believe the Hawks can LOSE at home until they do so."
Why is that?
Because we play much better at home....and find a way to win.
No, I agree with that. In fact, it seems like we are a completely different team at home.
I just wonder why it seems that some folks who automatically assume losses on the road based on this year's performances don't also automatically assume wins at home based on this year's performances.
They extrapolate poor play on the road to games at home, but don't extrapolate good play at home to road games. It's just a strange inconsistency, I suppose.
I think - based on the way we've played this year - that we should win our remaining home games. Yeah, the SF game is likely to be very difficult, but when teams of St. Louis and Arizona's caliber have come to Seattle this season, the Seahawks have handled them. On the flipside, I think that both of the remaining road games are likely to be losses unless something changes. They'd probably be very CLOSE losses, but until the team proves it can carry the fire with which it plays at home over to road games, I still expect them to be losses.
Of course, this team has also been screwing with people's expectations all year (both good and bad), so who knows what will happen?
