The Seattle Seahawks have landed into the cold and unforgiving heartland of America, otherwise known as Chicago. Coach Carroll will be holding a light workout Saturday afternoon to go over a few last-minute things before Sundays big game at Soldier field.
The mainstream press will be out trying to drum-up a last-minute story tomorrow with the same tired theme that the Bears are great and Seattle is lucky to be here. I”m sure Pete Carroll will say something that will confuse the press in his sort-of Yogi Berra way of telling the truth with an odd slant. I trust Carroll to not only handle the press but to have a plan to keep building the emotional energy for his team so that they are ready to explode when it is game time.
Right now it does not matter what Fox or ESPN says about this game. This game will be won or lost like most battles based on who is better prepared physically and emotionally, which team executes their game-plan, and the elusive intangibles like weather and turn-overs.
Right now our players and coaches are beginning to block-out all other aspects of their lives that don”t have anything to do with Sundays game. Of course you need to keep loose as well, but I have a feeling that our guys are getting into the zone as we speak.
As members of the 12th man out here in Seattle, our role is obviously reduced when our guys are on the road. However we can and should keep the collective positive energy vibe directed towards Chicago, as the team that represents us and our way of life is in for a hard-fought battle on enemy turf this weekend. My oh My the suspense is killing me……Can”t wait for kickoff Sunday…….Still pick the Seahawks by 7 over Da Bears! Tugboat Jeff at http://jeffsmariners.com
