Seahawks are Birds Not Gladiators

 

 

by Amy Lignor

Some NFL fans will refer to it as luck; others will refer to it as fate – but…things happen. The experts weigh in when a game concludes; they speak about the play style, the stars of the game, the reasons why so-and-so couldn’t do something they always do because of the sodden turf or the whipping winds. But there is also a little something called karma.

 

No NFL team is without fault. None. Not a one. No NFL fans ate without fault. Let’s be honest – this is the game of America (no offense Seattle-Seahawks-Football-HD-Wallpaperto baseball). Stadiums are packed to the rafters in every city (even the ones whose teams are in the basement), and shouting, yelling, cursing – everything occurs when the home team isn’t doing well. They support…perhaps a little too nastily sometimes, but it never stops. Especially in December. After all, this is the time champions are made.

 

There were a number of games that were a surprise over the weekend, but the one a great many are talking about comes in the form of a bird that was soaring high and then fell from the sky. Boy…the Seattle Seahawks and their fans are beyond unhappy this morning. They were going to San Francisco eagerly (thinking the win was already in their pocket), to clinch their division and call it a day.

 

Leading up to this game was ridiculous Twitter events, anger, yelling, and that was just from the team members. Seattle has to be given an extreme amount of credit, though. Their slam-dunk against the New Orleans Saints was phenomenal (although the penalties in that one were moronic, as well). Some experts say the Seahawks were on a winning streak because of the best defense in the NFL; although, some say the meanest since the Oakland Raiders/Madden days.

 

What Seattle received when they went to California, however, was a mirror-image of what they usually receive. The Niners won on their own home turf, as Seattle decided to get angrier and angrier with facemask penalties, tossing players up in the air, and basically trying to make sure that Kap never played another game in the NFL. Well…didn’t work.

 

Jim Harbaugh began his coaching reign in 2011 with the 49ers and has beaten these birds in every meeting held at beloved Candlestick. And Harbaugh – not to mention his adrenaline-pumped team – decided that there was no way they would give this one up either.

 

Was it luck? Sure. Was it karma slapping the Seahawks in the face and telling them that a winning team is great but class on the field is even better? Absolutely.

 

The Seahawks offense was held to five third-down conversions on twelve attempts. Kap was like a kid in a candy store when his team showed that they were not about to back down from the ‘loud mouths’ who wanted to spew forth comments this past week. And, frankly, the Seahawks needed a bit of come-uppance, reminding them that anger management may need to be added to their weekly regimen.

 

This is a game of hits and knockdowns. That’s one of the things that makes football great. But when a player has another one down and chooses to slam their head back and laugh – that goes from an NFL player who loves his team and the sport, to a bully on the playground who doesn’t understand that they, too, can be knocked down.

 

Will the 49ers win the division? Who knows right now; they haven’t exactly had the stellar season that the experts originally said they would. But for now Kap and company (not to mention fans across the country routing for other teams besides the Niners, but who absolutely abhor the Seahawks), are enjoying the slap on the wrist that Seattle truly deserved!

 

Until Next Time, Everybody,

Amy
