This is the third annual themed video review for the Seahawks' season. Check out the previous editions if you missed them.
This year's themed is the short-lived, but hilarious, Starz show Party Down.
Hiring Pete Carroll was something of a revelation for the team. Especially after the disastrous 2008 and 2009 seasons.
Carroll's mantra of "Always Compete" was an attempt at changing the way the players think and go about their lives.
After a strong showing against the 49ers to open the season, the Seahawks could strut a little.
In Week 2, however, it looked like the Seahawks were their typical selves. They looked timid and scared while playing on the road at Denver.
But the good feelings quickly faded after the Chicago and Arizona games. Blowouts against Oakland and New York allowed us to analyze and rate the team objectively.
At times, the Seahawks appeared completely broken.
Somehow, though, the Hawks stayed in the playoff hunt. Perhaps they blackmailed the rest of the NFC West.
A victory against the Rams in the final game of the season allowed the Seahawks to gain a modicum of respect. Even if it was tainted by the fact that the Seahawks were in the worst division in football.
They played completely out of their minds against the the Saints. They just wanted to feel what it was like to advance in the playoffs.
Unfortunately, the Seahawks fell against the Bears in the divisional round. The weaknesses of the team really showed through again as the Bears cruised to an easy victory.
Perhaps that game could've gone better had Carroll given the team a better pep talk.
Hopefully the front office and the players have learned some lessons from this year. It will just make them stronger moving forward.
