Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse, a survey of fans across the NFL powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Seahawks fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.
Ahead of Seahawks-Broncos on Sunday, SB Nation has delivered the results from our initial FanPulse survey. The results are quite interesting, and a cool way to get a sense of, well, the pulse of fans! Thank you to everyone who signed up and voted, and I would strongly encourage anyone interested to get involved.
Will the Seahawks win or lose in Week 1?
The fans remain confident in the Seahawks’ chances heading into Week 1 in Denver, despite the Broncos being favored by Vegas odds. Denver is 18-1 in home games during the first two weeks of the season since 2001, but Seattle’s fans like their team’s odds of doubling the Broncos’ loss total over that span.
How confident are you in the direction of the team?
Very confident: 23 percent
Somewhat confident: 67 percent
Meh: 4 percent
Not very confident: 5 percent
Not confident at all: 1 percent
A large majority—90-percent— disagree with Richard Sherman’s assessment the Seahawks have “Lost their way,” voting that they’re either very or somewhat confident in Seattle’s direction as a team.
What is the worst NFL rule?
Fans aren’t interested in the NFL’s explanation of “Flagging everything,” as they attempt to gain clarity surrounding the new helmet rule, as it comes out on top with 48-percent of voters calling it the league’s worst rule.
Once again, thanks to all who participated. If anyone is curious about learning more about FanPulse or has any concerns, please feel free to hit any of us up either here, on Twitter or via email and we’ll happily help.
