I have been a fan of the Seahawks from the very beginning. On a few occasions there has been a high level of enthusiasm for the upcoming season. Following the 1984 season (12-4) in which Curt Warner was injured in the 1st game, the expectations and enthusiasm were at an all time high. 1985 brought the team an 8-8 record. I believe it was the 1988 season when they went 10-6 and beat both Super Bowl participants that brought in another season with high expectations.
I don't think that I have ever been more excited for a season to begin than this next one. I am usually ready for the season to begin about 30 seconds after the completion of the Seahawks last game. Can't get enough of them! I don't believe I have ever seen a Seahawks team that is seemingly this deep and ready with quality players at every position. Most years it is a question at a few positions on how things will work out. My question to my fellow fans is this, Do we go all in with our enthusiasm and expectations or do we temper them with a little reality that it is a long season and anything can happen?
I don't want to be a Debbie downer. I am by my very nature upbeat and positive. If we go all in and then don't win it all, is the season a complete failure? Are we all gonna have the suicide hotline on speed dial? Is it a case of the higher the expectation, the farther the fall?
