From 2002-2011, the Seahawks went 81-79. Middle of the pack win percentage in the NFC.
For the same period, our HOME record was 51-29! SECOND in the NFC only behind Green Bay.
Obviously the home advantage is a real phenomenon, but I have often wondered what actually causes it.
The impact of the fans?
The weariness of travel?
The different time zone?
Is this a stupid question? I don't know but I really don't get it.
More specifically, why is THIS Seahawks team struggling on the road? Why can't they seem to bring it without the crowd blowing up for them?
