You may remember me as the Steelers fan who jumped on the Seattle bandwagon for their brief run in the 2012 Playoffs, even participated in a game thread with you last year. This year, with my team falling to 8-8 for the second straight season, I once again started following Seattle when the playoffs began, just didn't come over and bug ya with my compliments. A Steelers fan liking the Seahawks seems too weird for a few Field Gull users, so I have kept my distance and admired from afar.
- Great Defense, not sure how they rank versus the all-time great defenses, better people than me can tell you that, but color me green with envy, I love a hard-nosed D.
- Backed up by a great running game with a Beast running the ball.
- Topped off by a second year QB who is consistent, smart and should only get better.
- The present and future is so bright the city of Seattle has to wear shades......even if it is raining out ; )
- Currently the best local fan base in the NFL with a nod at the Packer Backers.
Trust me, I remember and relish my team's victory over yours when our teams matched up in a Super Bowl almost a decade ago. The Steelers came away with the victory that day, the only reason I bring this up at this time is to say how much Seattle reminds me of that Steelers team.
- Really good defense that was the strength of the team.
- Good running game with the Bus and Fast Willie Parker.
- 2nd year QB who is a winner.
In a league where offense is given all the glory, it's nice being able to still say, Defense wins Championships.
