It has been a fun season, and this game was a wild ride to be sure. Following some back and forth early on, the San Francisco 49ers remembered that the Seattle Seahawks decided to not field a defense today and then it was all over.
We all know the story; nobody thought the Seahawks had anything going for them this year, and that was an awful loss ... But it doesn’t erase what ended up being a much more fun season than practically anybody would have predicted (me included). Following the massively disappointing showing in the second half, fans sounded off with words of frustration, but also with a lot of hope and encouragement. The future looks brighter for this team today than it did last summer, and they head into the offseason with a draft haul to look forward to and at least a decent number of exciting young players who can step up in 2023.

What a season it has been from the #Seahawks. They were counted out from the start and they gave so many of us hope that we didn’t think we would have. I feel so hopeful for this teams future and excited for what the off-season will bring! #GoHawks— Mikaela Mattes (@mikaelamattes) January 15, 2023
The 49ers are an incredible team. Seattle needed to be perfect today and, for 30 minutes, they were pretty damn close.— Cigar Thoughts (@CigarThoughts) January 15, 2023
Water found its level in the second half.
Work to do this offseason, but one hell of a ride. Cheers to the Seahawks for a really fun year.
i don't think they should but i wouldn't be shocked if someone on the defensive staff gets fired— playoff geno (@cmikesspinmove) January 15, 2023

Officiating has called 2 highly questionable lineman downfield calls (ball had gone in split second, lineman was right at the allowed 1 yard extra)— Matty F. Brown (@mattyfbrown) January 15, 2023
Yet ignored some egregious Ward recovery holding/pass interference versus DK Metcalf. Tough breaks for the #Seahawks. Now or never
As frustrating as this second half of football has been, I’m not even mad. Truly. This was an incredible season! Absolutely defied expectations. The future is BRIGHT!— Hawkaholic Go Hawks (@seahawks12girl) January 15, 2023
Welp that’s it but Eagles will get them— Whitney (@trumplostsuckit) January 14, 2023
Against the #49ers it's really damn hard to win unless you have a perfect game. The #Seahawks did a phenomenal job in the first half but busted coverages, no pressure on the QB, two turnovers, and bad tackling is pretty much it. Too much damn talent on their offense.— Samuel Gold (@SamuelRGold) January 15, 2023

Seahawks had one heck of a season!— Kate (@Kateskees) January 15, 2023
I don’t care what anyone says. This season was FUN. Geno is HIM. And our future looks bright. Looking forward to next season. pic.twitter.com/It6fDbChNa— Tameka Renee (@TheMomNextDoor2) January 15, 2023
Well shit. I'm in tears, really thought we could do this today. What an emotional game. So heartbroken.— That Seahawk Gal (@Teresa4ever12) January 15, 2023
Awesome season and fought hard as hell. Blew all expectations out of the water. Rigged since we been down 14 but that’s okay, we were gonna lose at that point anyway. We need to replace much of front 7, draft a qb, and some o line help.— Jamalszn GENO! Why not us? (@Jamalsznn) January 15, 2023

1 sec later, Geno throws an interception.
Dad: That's it.
Seattle has really missed Jordyn Brooks today.— Corbin K. Smith (@CorbinSmithNFL) January 15, 2023

So…remember that time the #Seahawks beat the #Broncos this season? pic.twitter.com/w0Co1ARsZP— Mikaela Mattes (@mikaelamattes) January 15, 2023
1. Beat broncos. 2. Geno beat all his old teams. 3. We MADE playoffs. 4. Russell did not 5. Russell finished last in his division……— Brittany Naidu (@itsbritlike4sur) January 15, 2023
I'll say this. The 49ers look like a Super Bowl winner and Seattle led at the half. No one expected anything from the Seahawks this year. But 2024, Seattle is going to be really good.— 12th Man Rising (@12thMan_Rising) January 15, 2023

This team is going to be so good next season.
Et c'est sur cette défaite que s'achève notre saison.— Seahawks France (@SeahawksFrance) January 15, 2023
Victoire méritée des 49ers.
Merci encore à toute la communauté NFL FR pour cette incroyable saison encore une fois, et merci au Seahawks Twitter toujours présent depuis la France les US et partout ailleurs !
The Seahawks had a successful season and the arrow is very much pointing up thanks to their young core and a ton of 2023 draft capital. But the 49ers gave them another reminder today of how far Seattle has to go to catch up. San Fran beat them by a combined 89-43 in three wins.— Brady Henderson (@BradyHenderson) January 15, 2023

Seattle was pegged to have a top 5 pick before the season.— Goodberry (@JoeGoodberry) January 15, 2023
This game was close for 3 quarters. There's no shame here.
