On the Seattle Seahawks postgame show, airing on Fox in Seattle, fans were given poll questions to answer online at the beginning of the show. The questions related to the quarterback situation, NFC West and the Seahawks chances at the playoffs. After a thorough butt-kicking at the hands of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, let's just say Seahawks fans weren't too optimistic about Seattle's playoff chances.â†µ
Question: Will the Seahawks beat the Rams?
Answer: 76 percent no. 24 percent yes.
Question: Do you care if the Seahawks make the playoffs?
Answer: 81 percent no. 19 percent yes.
Not only are the Seahawks suffering through a painful season, but it appears as though fans have hit a breaking point. Even with the Hawks on the doorstep of the playoffs, fans in Seattle have fallen into apathy, no longer caring about the team or the playoffs. Pessimism is one thing, and understandable after a rough day on the field. Not even caring about whether the Seahawks make the playoffs is another.â†µ
Needless to say it's been a rough year in Seattle. Wonder if that tune will change if Seattle wins the NFC West next Sunday, no matter how long the odds.â†µ
