In a bar in Atlanta nobody knows I am a Seahawks fan, they just assume I'm a Falcons fan. I'm hearing lots of "if we don't make it I'm still proud of our team, they had a great season"

They seem scared. :)

That is no surprise but still fun to hear. I live in KC now so it's fun for me to hear about all the fans and what they say here too. I've converted a lot of them to Hawks fans though. They will still root for the Chiefs, of course, but they say they will root for the Hawks too and they get happy for me when they win. It's fun.

I'm in south Jersey. On three separate occasions this past week, people went out of their way to tell me they're rooting for my team. All of them said they're such a fun team to watch. They specifically mention our defense and Russell Wilson by name. There's also a Cowboys fan at work who asked me for a Seahawks hat to wear for the playoffs. He's on the wagon. Lol To see him wearing it is both weird and funny at the same time. I've lived here since 85 and and I've never seen people around here so excited by the Seahawks. Used to be all I got was, "Seahawks? Why the hell do you like them?" Great times Seahawks fans. Great times. :thirishdrinkers:

How do they not know you are a Seahawks fan? Put some clothes on, man.

Not sure what bar he is at, but the small sample size definitely doesn't accurately represent the Falcons fanbase. I don't know any Falcon fans who would think going one and done again in the playoffs would make for a great season.

Plenty of time to wear the colors tomorrow. Get a better assessment of the situation with street clothes on.

Pathetic. The Falcon fans I know aren't like that. I'll be extremely angry if we go one and done AGAIN.
