The 2012 Seattle Seahawks have a new nickname according to my 7-year-old daughter, a nickname she chose based on the game she loves to play on Daddy's cellphone.
I. Flipping. Love. It.
There has never been a Seahawks squad as collectively intense, fighting with a chip on their shoulders like this 2012 team does. They don't want to just knock you down. They want to knock you into another area code. There is an inescapable force that is undeniable. The momentum that is building is already historic and looks like it has no reason nor desire to discontinue.
I have respect for the Rams. They are 4-0-1 in the NFC West this year. They have a new coach they believe in, a promising tough defense and talent on offense. They've proven they can beat their divisional rivals. But if I am supposed to buy into this tiny outburst of fear I've been hearing this week, that somehow the Rams might knock us off (for various reasons) this Sunday, well forgive me but I call bullshit.
Mr. Wilson and company have other plans. 8-0 at home bitches. Enjoy your stay at the woodshed, Rams.
