Were all fans here and that is all well and good.

But as a precursor to the inevitable we should beat down Chicago statements and we have this in the bag, or they have not played us with these guys and Russell Wilson at the helm and we will kill them or we have way better talent then they do and will crush them. Or they are decimated by injuries and no way have a chance in hell.


But please put that in a deep fricken hole, throw some dirt on it, kill a goat and pour the blood over the hole, light a insence and say the name of every player to ever where a Seahawks uniform, then rub the tainted dirt all over your body and find a football feild to run naked in from goal post to goal post.

If you then still feel the need to make such a post it will be punished by the Radish singing Toucha Toucha Toucha Touch me to you.

There is no way that the Bears win. This will be the most frivolously easy win in Seahawks history, ushering in an era of prosperity and Super Bowl rings for decades to come. Never again will there be a simpler task than beating the Bears in Chicago, and we shall all look back on this upcoming game with tears in our eyes for remembrance of how beautifully perfect it was.

I'm an Optimist, in that I think the best will likely happen.

I'm definitely not an Optomist, who is someone that squirts you in the eye with a spray bottle.

Oh, and I think we have this one in the bag because of injury concerns, the fact that Wilson continues to improve, and that have recently played very well at Soldier Field in the regular season.

Final Score: Seahawks Eleventeen
Bears Two (Wilson accidentally kneels down in the endzone on a victory formation play as time expires).

This team has proven time and time again that they can't win at 10 AM. I just don't see it happening. By the power of Tanzania I hope it does though.

What freaks me out is

1) How do you know my pregame ritual?

and

2) How do you know my favorite song?

Haven't we won in Chicago at 10:00 in each of the last 2 years? Not saying its in the bag , but I happen to think that this years team is better then either of those teams.

And New York.

Granted, it's not often. But given the quality of those teams, it's worth a notice.

A few things:

It's "wear" a uniform, not "where". Just sayin'

Chi is Central time, not Eastern time. So I'm saying there's a chance !

And, YEAH, screw positive thought ! I'm with ya man.

Disclaimer: most, if not all of this post was sarcastic in nature. I am in no way denigrating those politically correct, unending optimists that think the Seahawks are world killers and there is nothing wrong with our team on the road. I am not telling anyone how to be a fan. I am not judging the "we're going to crush them !" and "I fear no team on the road !" crowd in any way, shape or form. I do laugh at you quite often though. The meltdowns are a constant source of amusement.

Hey man, curb the optimism a bit, huh?

Have you ever heard Radish sing? Have him tell you the story of when he was in France performing in the cabaret.

What's the point in being a sports fan if you go into a game worried you might not win.

I go into EVERY game thinking we're going to crush the opposition, that's what fandom is all about.
Put the 2009 Seahawks up against the 2007 Patriots and I'd STILL go into the game saying we were going to win.

Where's the fun in expecting a loss? It's not like my overconfidence will ever affect the way the team plays

I don't believe the original poster was telling everyone to expect a loss.
I believe he and Radish for the whole season has been asking people to keep perspective and realize that the NFL is made up of 32 proffesional teams, and even the lowest rated team can win and will win on any given Sunday.
I believe we all cheer for this team the best we can, I myself am very proud of the progress we have made since the end of the Holmgren era.

So to be clear: there are still people on this board who feel the need to spray threads discouraging the "other side" of fans to not even bother expressing themselves...

And that somehow the idea that people who become emotionally invested in grown men playing sports for millions of dollars should also have "perspective"?

Jesus christ on a bike.... the Seahawks represent the ultimate release from real life and yet their are still way too many peopkle who try and rationalize it. Let it happen... all of it

And we will win Sunday. I believe it because its the only thing that makes sense

Our CBs are gonna play with hate in their hearts and our D will use the dark side of the force to cause 8 turnovers. Jay Cutler will leave announcers and fans speechless when he calls timeout to poop his pants out of fear and frustration.

Does Radish know the words to Science Fiction Double Feature? What would I have to do to get him to sing it?

It's the letdown factor. If I expect a win (like I did in the Arizona, St. Louis and Miami games), then I'm more pissed off after. If I expect a loss (like I did in the Patriot game), then the only emotional outcome is good.

So yeah, your expectations don't affect the team.........buy they do affect you. Why would I go in expecting wins when the Hawks aren't favored, all it can lead to is a letdown. I'd rather be realistic.........doesn't mean I'm not ROOTING for a win, but I'm not going to blindly expect one either.
