Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NFL. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged-in Seattle Seahawks fans and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

Last week, the Seattle Seahawks were at the very bottom among all fanbases when it came to confidence in the direction of the franchise. At a paltry 16% I don’t think it had ever been this low even when the 2017 team had some nightmare performances and a failure to make the playoffs.

Well unfortunately the Russell Wilson-less Seahawks weren’t able to bring home the win against the Pittsburgh Steelers, perhaps it was the close nature of the defeat that gave a slight uptick in optimism. This week we climb up to a still grim 20%.

We’re also no longer in last place, and in fact we’re at 26th. The Denver Broncos are at a staggering 3% after losing badly to the Las Vegas Raiders, turning a 3-0 start to a 3-3 mark. The Philadelphia Eagles, Miami Dolphins, Washington Football Team, New York Giants, and (obviously) the Houston Texans round out the bottom tier.

As for the national question... y’all can’t seriously love the way the NFL’s taunting penalty emphasis has gone, right?
