You remember when you were a kid and right before your parents would give you a colossal ass whipping they would say "This is going to hurt me more than it hurts you?" That's how the Seahawks feel about the ass whipping they're about to put on Jacksonville this Sunday. First year head coach Gus Bradley was an integral part of Seattle's success over the past few seasons and everyone wants to see him do well. Unfortunately the Jacksonville Jaguars are a team in MASSIVE transition. They have little or no talent on either side of the ball and it will take years before the Jags return to respectability.
On the flip side the Seahawks are a team that might not lose a game this year. After an impressive win over the San Francisco 49ers the Hawks look virtually unstoppable. The pass rush got a much needed boost with the return of Cliff Avril and Marshawn Lynch returned to Beastmode. Russell hasn't been spectacular in the first two weeks of the season, but all that's about to change when he faces one of the league's worst defenses in the loudest stadium the world has ever seen.
There's a slight chance the Seahawks are looking ahead to their match up against Houston in two weeks, but I think this team is too disciplined to take anything for granted. Pete Carroll has established a culture where every player understands the importance of performing at a high level against EVERY opponent. This team won't suffer a letdown as many detractors have predicted. In fact don't be surprised if the Seahawks score 50 points. I'll be back on Monday with a recap of the Jacksonville beatdown. Parental discretion is advised as the details may get ugly. Until the next time let's all keep a SeahawkCentric state of mind shall we?
