Following the Seattle Seahawks win over the San Francisco 49ers two Mondays ago, FanPulse results are in and they are now up from 70% confidence in the direction of the team to 83%. (Though this is following the Bye week, the poll came out before Monday night’s game in San Francisco.)
It’s the highest the poll has been for Seattle fans since a Week 2 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers got the voting to 89%.
Headed into the season, confidence was at a 2019 high of 93% going into Week 1, right after the acquisition of defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.
The lowest confidence has been is 47% following Week 7’s 30-16 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, a team that has since beaten the New England Patriots, Cincinnati Bengals, and Houston Texans by a combined score of 127-40.
Seahawks fan confidence has steadily risen since then but clearly some travelers are still wary that the ride at 8-2 will come crashing down eventually because of all the close victories and bad first quarters. We’ll see. But one thing is clear: there’s nothing consistent about the way the fanbase seems to feel about this franchise week-to-week. Sort of like Pete Carroll’s first, second, third, and fourth quarters.
(And OT when necessary.)
