NFL: Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports

Still a young squad (in places), still haven’t put together a complete game, still looking for answers. Our Seattle Seahawks completed the wrong end of a season sweep at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers Sunday afternoon. At times, our squad looked more than competitive. In all other instances, our squad looked lost. Obviously, there will be much said about the Seahawks’ performance this season. Some will call for the heads of coaches, others will call for certain players to be released or traded. I fancy a more simple and obtuse suggestion for our favourite team: in the words of Rema & Selena Gomez, “calm down”. If there is one positive assessment of yesterday’s game it’s that we look like we can beat the Eagles. Argue all you want, but we’ve got the players. If not for a more peaceful, creative, and confident approach, we’d be firmly planted within the NFC play-off picture. IMO. What do you think? Burn the forest down or continue to cultivate in Pete and John’s garden?
