When the Seahawks schedule came out I was looking forward to the homecoming of Jake Locker. Locker was a big part of resurrecting the Huskies football program by unselfishly turning down $50,000,000 to return for his senior year. Now I'm thankful he doesn't have to be on the field when the Tennessee Titans come to Century Link Field on Sunday. It's not a good time to be a Seahawks opponent.
The Hawks suffered an embarrassing defeat at the hands of Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts last Sunday and are eager to get back on the winning track. There's nothing worse than an angry, motivated Seahawks team looking to put on a dominant performance in front of the 12th man and the millions of doubters who recently jumped off the Seahawks bandwagon. Locker is a legend in the 206 and doesn't deserve what the Seahawks would have done to him. It's better he stays on the sidelines as an innocent bystander.
For the record I'm still drinking the Pete Carroll Cool-Aid. I didn't see anything last Sunday that would suggest the Seahawks won't win the Super Bowl this year. Certainly they could be better converting on 3rd down and eliminating big plays, but the formula for success remains the same. Let Russell Wilson do his thing, play solid defense, and allow Marshawn "Beastmode" Lynch to run over opposing teams like a Caterpillar bulldozer. Pretty simple right?
The Tennessee Titans are no match for the Seattle Seahawks. Everyone knows this. There is no chance the Titans will win the game on Sunday. If the Hawks don't win by 15 or more points I'll shave off all my hair and throw my pinky ring in the lake. A reckless statement perhaps, but I'll take my chances. I'll chime in on Monday with all the juicy details of the Seahawks slaughter. Until then let's all keep a SeahawkCentric state of mind shall we?
