What If the Seahawks lose the first game against the Panthers?
Big deal. It's still the Super Bowl season. 0-1 means nothing. 26%  26%  [ 34 ]
It would be a shock. I won't lie. I expect this team to start 1-0. 64%  64%  [ 82 ]
Not sure how I would feel. Ambivalent? 10%  10%  [ 13 ]

This isn't really true. Yes the bookmakers are hoping to get close to 50/50 money so that they get a guaranteed profit, but the win percentages across the league reflect a very direct correlation with point spreads. The spreads get governed by the betting market, the biggest money comes in from the professional gamblers, and that market is obviously a lot more objective than any individual fanbase is.

To answer the initial question: I won't be shocked at all. I think we win the game more often than not, but I personally hate that we drew this game as an opener. Panthers are tough and statistically were far superior to their record last year. Their late-season blowout of Atlanta wasn't that shocking for that reason.

It's a difficult first five game stretch to start the year (aside from the cupcake in week three), and I'll be happy to come out of it with a 3-2 record.
