‘Absolutely inexcusable’ - Seahawks fans react to brutal loss to Rams

The pain. Oh the pain.

I dislike the LA Rams. And can you blame me? If you are a Seattle Seahawks fan, you probably share this same contempt. But after another disappointing collapse and another game that came down to one final drive... most of my anger is directed at the Seahawks. They came out of the gate swinging, and looked like they were on their way to a much needed victory over one of their NFC West foes. And of course they did the exact opposite of that. Following a first half that looked like they were going to run away with it... we got a second half that featured an injury to Geno Smith that resulted in a brief and unsuccessful appearance by Drew Lock, followed by a thrilling finale that just seemed too good to be true... because it was. So what catharsis does the internet have to offer? The answer is “a lot,” but let’s start with some of the good so we can at least give ourselves a bit of an emotional cushion after that nauseating display of chaotic ineptitude.

And maybe even better is the fact that we can finally put the whole “put Drew Lock in” debacle to bed.

Okay... I’m ready now... Here comes the pain.

People also had some genuinely good analysis, because at the end of the day, games like this highlight some of what separates the Seahawks from playoff contenders.

And then there is the obligatory commentary around officiating, which I take no official position on, officially.
