I think there is a lot riding on this game. Honestly, to me it feels like this game is for the division, and maybe our season. I have no confidence in Seattle winning four tough postseason games away from Seattle. Two would surprise me. Four is unthinkable. Seattle hasn't won a road playoff game since... their very first one in 1983?
I also feel like Seattle is destined to win next week and the week after. SF hasn't been the same under Kaepernick and I feel very strongly that the Rams will get destroyed in the finale. They haven't won in Seattle since the 2004 playoffs, and this current Seahawks team is way better than any team they've ever played before, including the one they played earlier this season.
If Seattle does lose, I just hope there isn't a nuclear meltdown around here. I've been shocked at times hearing some of the stupid and dangerous ideas people have floated this Fall while "venting" after losses.
Like I said before, it's perfectly normal to be nervous. In fact, if you're NOT nervous (assuming you've been a fan of the Seahawks for more than 3 seconds) I have to suggest not all of the synapses are doing their jobs. I would love nothing more than to say you are foolish for being nervous, that all of your pause is for not, however, I would be kidding you and myself if I did just that.
Hoping the Seahawks win today is no different than placing all your faith (and money) on black at the roulette table in Vegas.
50/50. Although you think it's better than that or you wouldn't bet.
I still feel 90% confident we win this game. Of course, that and a buck fifty might get you the Sunday morning paper.
