If this was a movie, the Seahawks would rally around this news and make a Hollywood push to a Super Bowl win. It isn’t Hollywood and that’s not going to happen.
I’m the last person to pull the plug on things. I’m really the eternal optimist when it comes to my teams. I believed the Sonics would never leave. I thought Jim Mora would be a good coach. I wanted Rick Meier to throw to his left. I hoped that Alex Rodriguez was serious when he said it wasn’t about the money. I bought into the Boz.
But I’m not feeling it now. Maybe it’s too soon after the loss. Maybe the loss and suspensions were too overwhelming to be dealt with together. Maybe another beer and another day will make things look better.
I hope so. I sincerely hope so.
Until then, the currently 6-5 Seahawks have to suck it up and get ready to play an injury-depleted Chicago Bears team in Chicago next.
