The Blue Endzones Are Back!

27 Nov

Because I went to the Apple Cup tonight, I got to see a preview of what the field is going to look like for the Seahawks game tomorrow. To my pleasant surprise, the Seahawks are bringing back the blue endzones. This is a detail that most fans don’t really notice or even care about but the fact of the matter is that when the Seahawks had blue endzones from 2002-2007, we went to the playoffs 5 times. Since the endzones have been green starting in 2008, our home record has not been as great. I look forward to see what kind of game we play tomorrow now that the original colored endzones are back!

Even though the Seahawks and Rams are not playing their best football this season it is always fun when they play each other. We hate them and they hate us. This is why today’s 24-7 win makes me smile even wider. We sacked Sam Bradford five times, forced two fumble and Red Bryant even had an interception. With a three game homestand upcoming, now is the perfect time to boost our record. Unfortunately with the 49ers sitting at 9-1 whatever run we go on will not be enough to get back to the playoffs. Great win and I can’t wait for Washington to get here for next Sunday’s game.

This season is a mystery so far. We are 3-6 but 2 of these wins are against playoff quality teams. Games like Sunday’s win over the Ravens gets me thinking that we can beat every team on our schedule but I know we won’t. With the 49ers continuing to win, their magic number gets smaller and the vision of a decent draft pick is more likely than a second straight return to the playoffs.

The play of our defense the past couple of weeks has really got me excited for the future. My friends and I are discussing the possibility of having a top 5 overall defense two or three years down the road. Our run defense led by Red, Brandon, and David is already looking fantastic and with Kam, Earl, and Richard all improving week in and week out, I am getting excited about thinking of our secondary once they gel and mature a little more.

Although he looked good on Sunday we need a better quarterback. Plain and simple, Tarvaris Jackson is not our quarterback of the future. After upgrading at quarterback with loads of talent at the skill positions with Marshawn, Sidney, Mike, and Zach, we will be a very dangerous unit in a couple of years as well.
