Log In. Check my Fantasy Football roster. Go to NFL.com, go to Seahawks.com, go to Fieldgulls.com then repeat.
This is the start of a typical day for me at work.
While going through my usual routine, I often read articles of 'experts' and fans talking about what the Seahawks' schedule will be at the end of the season. Chalking up wins to the weaker opponents (on paper) and already counting us out versus stronger opponents.
Look. I understand we just went through a bye week and there is little to talk about but come on people, One Game At A Time ! Anybody who has been a Seahawk fan for as long as I have understand that there are no gimme's in this league. Now me personally, I'm going in to the rest of this season expecting us to finish 12-4. That's right. 12-4. We don't expect our players going into any given Sunday expecting to lose. Sure we (players and fans) expect more challenging weekends but that just means the players give 110% as apposed to the usual 100%.
I don't even want to talk about Chicago, San Fransisco or anyone else until the time comes. Our time is now. We have a date with the Miami Dolphins. I know they don't appear to be as tough of an opponent as they did a couple of weeks ago but we still need to respect their strengths.
As exciting as it is to watch Pete Carroll, Russell Wilson, Beast Mode and the Legion of Boom, we can improve all areas of our game. It's just a matter of taking on the old time cliche of 'One Game At A Time' to achieve what we want to achieve. I believe that is why in the past couple of years, Wildcard teams have been able to win championships. They have been forced to treat the last half of their season with a one game at a time approach. These teams work their tails off just to get into the playoffs and have worked up a great routine and prepared themselves mentally and physically for the challenge.
I am confident our 2012 Seahawks will not be guilty of looking past their opponent. It would just be nice that our fans did not as well.
