Each individual game hasn’t felt the safest for the Seattle Seahawks, but we’re used to that by now, right?! We got a one week respite and now that we’re coming off of a bye week, Seahawks fans are still feeling strong about their favorite team.
According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, 93 percent of Seahawks fans believe the team is headed in the right direction, holding steady at the same spot it was a week ago. I suppose that’s good because in more than half the games the Seahawks have played the confidence has dipped despite an unbeaten record. Maybe a bye week was meant to ease minds for a bit.
The Seahawks have another difficult challenge this weekend, playing the surprising 4-2 Arizona Cardinals on the road, this time on Sunday Night Football. While fans nationally have picked Seattle to win, it is one of the most anticipated games of the week, according to the Reacts survey. Only the unbeaten vs. unbeaten matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Tennessee Titans is more anticipated, and it’s fully understandably why.
On the opposite end of the spectrum is the New York Jets. Somehow Adam Gase hasn’t been fired yet, perhaps repeatedly pointing to a picture of Peyton Manning in Denver as reason he should remain employed. Anyway, fans were asked how the winless Jets compare to the worst teams in modern NFL history. Two teams have finished 0-16 before and this team has 0-16 potential, but are they really the worst team you’ve ever seen? We could be prisoners of the moment but 53% of respondents have them as the worst.
The Seahawks play the Jets at home in December, by the way. Gase may not be employed by then but Gregg Williams could end up as the interim coach, and uh... given his history, I hope Russell Wilson is ultra protected that afternoon.
