2019 represents the tenth year of the Enemy Reaction series. It was initially titled “What The Losers Are Saying” back in 2009, then “The Morning Aftermath” in 2010, and the current title and format you’ve come to know and love was spawned in 2011.
So to commemorate this momentous occasion, over the next two weeks there will be a series of Enemy Reaction “year in review” specials that chronicle the entirety of the Pete Carroll era. We are going to skip the Jim Mora season because... well, I’m calling the shots, and I don’t want to relive that garbage.
Each year will have one (and only one) highlight from every game (with some exceptions), with the corresponding game thread reactions. Unlike other Enemy Reactions, I am including the losses, so this is as comprehensive as it gets.
The Seattle Seahawks won the Super Bowl in 2013 and were favorites to at least get back to the big game in 2014, with hopes of becoming the first team since the 2000s Patriots to repeat as champions. Seattle started out just 3-3, and were out of the playoff picture after a November loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. They ran the damn table and against all odds, clinched the #1 seed once again.
It was another incredible season of Seahawks football, and we’re going to relive all of it. Sort of.

Thanks for reading and go ‘Hawks!
