Sunday’s playoff loss was exhilarating yet also, in the end, very heartbreaking.
But as we move forward into the offseason and toward 2013, our players, coaches and fans should be so proud of this season, this team and all that we accomplished. An 11-5 regular season record, a road win in the wild card round of the playoffs and a dramatic never-give-up comeback in the divisional round all add together to give the Seahawks and our fans something to be pleased with and excited about.
While the finish to Sunday’s game was crushing, the comeback itself was a perfect microcosm of our club and season. Our players would not give in or relent, even when down 27-7 going into the fourth quarter. They maintained an unwavering belief all the way through the end. Only an incredible team could do what the Seahawks did on Sunday, in the playoffs and during this season — no matter how many times our guys got knocked down or fell behind, they would simply not surrender. Their resiliency bodes well for our future, and while we are bummed the 2012 season has ended, we are pumped about our prospects heading down the road.
So now we embark into the offseason, and our theme for the players and coaches is, “You’re either competing or you’re not.” It’s the only offseason we’ve got, so we’ve got to make the most of it. We’ve challenged the players to make it their best offseason of their careers. It’s the task set before us as we prepare, train and move toward the next step as a football team.
But as we head out, our players, coaches and fans should walk tall and take pride in what we’re building here. Something special is definitely happening with the Seahawks. Thank you for your support through the journey, and we hope you continue to come along for the ride as we charge toward 2013 and beyond.
