88 miles per hour. Back to the past. Into the future. Our Seattle Seahawks face up against an inconsistent and formidable foe this afternoon. The Cleveland Browns will most likely present a dynamic defense coupled with an inspired, if not sometimes wobbly offense. Either side may let the emotions of the moment get the best of them, throwing off already slim margins. A “W” will be earned. Unforced errors and top-ten highlights have littered the ‘Hawks season thus far. How complete of a game will our squad express this afternoon? Where will our emotions sit after today’s game, whether victory or defeat? How cool are we going to look today doing all of the above? Thanks for being here. Let’s go, ‘Hawks.

It's a defense that could eventually draw comparisons to earlier in the Pete Carroll era.
