  • Nothing but proud. I refuse to embrace the maddening "what ifs". It was an amazing comeback.

    You have to build through adversity, just like we did on the way to our dream 2005 season. Hats off to Atlanta for shedding the disappointments of playoffs past. We need to do the same next season. That Falcons offense showed some grit pulling it out at the end.

    I hope the team uses this as fuel to earn HFA next season, that is the KEY!

  • I'm very upbeat and optimistic. The loss went quickly from stings to a dull ache as I remembered the wonderful season that preceded it. So, I put proud in the poll.

    I expect next season to have a similar vibe as this year, only with the added bonus of more wins. I see no reason to dwell over what's done. Not when the future is so wide open for us. (And don't tell me it's loser talk. The core of this team is set, and it'd be stupid not to enjoy this season for what it was instead of what we wanted it to be.) Yesterday cemented Wilson as the leader of the team, and you just know that next year, there's not going to be any question about his ability or his command of the offense. Teams look up to guys like that: the ones who are always ready to pull you from a crushing defeat.

  • I would combine the Proud/A little sad but excited about the future options. I am a little sad about the game yesterday, but I am damn proud of the way our guys fight back and never gave up. I am also excited to keep the core of this team and go forward with more experience and be a playoff/superbowl contender year in and year out for years to come.

  • If it's possible to combine A and B I think that's where I stand. I still am pretty upset at how we lost but the idea of Russell Wilson getting a full offseason as our starting quarterback makes next year sound even better.

  • I can't not be a little bummed after that rally and taking the lead, I thought we had it and could stop them. To pretend it's no big deal would be a lie. It sucked.

    That being said we're not a team with a closing window, or an old roster that needs to win now. Today, I'm a little bummed but I'm also "over it" and ready to move on. Looking forward to seeing what Wilson will be able to do with an entire offseason to get with his guys and prepare for next year.

    I think this team is going to come together this offseason, knowing they are all so damn close to winning a Superbowl. I think we're going to see them working hard to make that happen.

  • As depressed as I've been since the Super Bowl loss since 2005. I've handled Seahawks losses better over the years, but today I feel a pit in my stomach worse than if a close girlfriend had broke up with me. I'm hoping noone at work says a word to me today.

    I'm with you here. I don't at all dwell on the "what ifs" and prefer to relish what I can from the season. In this case, I can relish a whole hell of a lot because we now have what I feel to be clearly one of the five best quarterbacks in football (and he is going to improve from here), a dominant defense which will benefit from improved pass rush, and still the best secondary in all of football (even though they sorta got schooled yesterday).

    Lots to look forward to next year.

  • Relief!

    Boy what a roller coaster ride that was. Wish it could have been 2 games longer tho.

    For me when the Seahawks are done for the season so am I. I am a Seahawks fan not an NFL fan. Won't watch another game this year, especially the SB. I've watched one in the last 20 years and i'll wager you know which that was. Couldn't care less about who wins what next. They all have to be substandard cause the Hawks won't be playing in them so why watch?

    Up to about 20 I knew the winners and most of the scores of all of them but got tired of the NFLs & players attitudes.

  • For many teams, losing a game like that in the divisional round can be crushing because they don't get to that point until they have reached their limited "window of opportunity". For the Seahawks, no one really expected us to be THIS good when the season started, and the valiant comeback showed us that we DEFINITELY not only belonged there, but we were capable of so much more.

    I think I would be more depressed if we had laid an egg after being down 20 points at halftime. Our team earned some MAJOR respect nationally with that second half effort, so as bummed as I am about the outcome yesterday I'm already stoked about our window of opportunity being ahead of us instead of behind us.

  • Feel sick with "what-ifs" playing over and over in my head.

    But also proud that the Hawks never quit, mounted a comeback, and earned the respect of the NFL. Happy they never lost by more than 1 score this year, but also frustrated that they only lost by 1 score in all their losses this year. So close!

  • Happy.

    Now, the loss sucked. We had them reeling, and we let it go. It took me all of 10 minutes to get over it and reflect upon this season. This was the most exciting 'Hawks team I've ever seen. Yes, even moreso than 2005. I feel like we just won the Super Bowl, rather than narrowly lost a Divisional round game. I can't imagine how I'll deal with an actual (and inevitable) SB victory.

    I thought we had an excellent season with a less-than-stellar team. Think about that. For all our deficiencies, for all the perceived holes in our roster, we had the #1 scoring defense in the league and one of the most dangerous offenses in the game. We have our franchise QB. We have a dominant running game. We are young and hungry. One of the three best seasons in the franchises history, and we can only get better through continuity, experience, and a few low budget, unsexy, seemingly insignificant roster moves that will trigger an unprecedented trajectory toward the promised land. We can lament missed opportunities and where we failed this season, but I think of how scary we will be going forward. No longer will Russell be benefiting from Lynch - the running game instead will explode as defenses try to contain Wilson. We will target additional weapons for the new face of the franchise, shore up the pass rushing woes, and lower ticket prices while solving world hunger. Great things are on the horizon. I can't be anything but happy right now. Love is a battlefield.

  • Troll alert. Butt hurt Patriots fan wanting to take a shot at a hurting fan base because somebody "disinfected" his glamor boy QB.

    I am proud of the team and glad to see them get a taste of what it is like to play in the playoffs. They were 1-1 on the road, so that shouldn't be a concern. Good job and see them next season!

    The only word I'd change it that post is "Relief" to "Depressed". The rest is me to a "t".

    I haven't felt so bad after a loss since the Rams beat us for the third time in the '04 season. When Engram dropped
    that TD toss, my brain caved in as Hasselbeck was crumpling to the turf. The Seahawks were stupid enough to include
    a photo of him that way in a Memory/Year That Was book sent out to season ticket holders. All that did was
    make me well up with tears and toss the thing in the trash. My daughter dug it out for me because she
    anticipated, correctly, that the following year was going to be even bigger.
