Seahawks and 49er Game

Seahawks and 49er Game

I attended the season opener of the Seattle Seahawks  game yesterday and everything was perfect.  The weather was brilliant, the fans were loud, there were false-start penalties on back-to-back plays and early in the game the defensive tackle Craig Terrill picked up a fumble to return it for a touchdown.  How often does that happen? Yes, the 49ers were in danger of getting blown out.

But disintegrating into a steam of penalties, turnovers and just plain bad football – the 49er bad luck wouldn’t last forever and it was Joe Nedney’s 40 yard field goal in overtime that gave the 49ers a 33-30 victory.  It’s the first time the Seahawks have been 0-2 since 2002 and with their injury-depleted offense the defense just didn’t step it up after the 49ers converted play after big play in the second half.  Fans were stunned and 67,000 people were dead silent.

Seattle loves the Seahawks.  And Mike Holmgren loves his Harley.  He is often quoted about riding it across the desert outside his Arizona (offseason) home, but he certainly didn’t come back for his 10th and final season with the Seahawks to teach life lessons like this…I’m sure there was at least one point in the game where he had to be thinking I best take a ride on the Harley and enjoy the sights of a beautiful late summer afternoon!
