Default hey guys, go hawks! (non troll thread)

I'm a Seahawks fan from way back. 1983 to be exact. At the age of 5 I decided silver, blue and green were my favorite color combination. My family consists of Seahawks, Chiefs and Panthers fans. My dad traveled for the air force and my five siblings all grew up in different parts of the United States before settling in Seattle in 1982. Since I was a baby I grew up watching football with my dad, brothers, uncles and cousins! Most of my family were born in western Missouri and hence the large number of KC fans. I however was born in Houston TX. I was too young to remember my time there and the oldest memories I have are during the move to Washington after my dad retired.

I'd love to discuss the game respectfully. Maybe I'll even stick around a while after the dust settles!

I've always kind of liked the Broncos truth be told. Loved the Bobby Humphreys, Michael Jacksons, Sharpe's and Atwaters of the world. I hated the Chiefs so much in the 90s I found myself rooting hard for the Broncos at least twice per year and in the playoffs. My favorite Broncos of all time remind me of my two favorite players... Elway and Davis embodied everything I wanted to be as a young man. Confident, consistent, hard working and successful.

I'd love to think that like Elway and Davis, Wilson and Lynch could finally break the cycle of coming up short and deliver us the pinnacle of professional sports. A Superbowl championship!

Standing in the way this season is Peyton Manning and thebl highest scoring offense in league history. Regardless of this games outcome I am extremely proud of this team. MY TEAM!!!! I want to win so badly, much like many of you did when you had to experience so much heart break before finally breaking through.

There will be no shame in losing this game, for either team. Watching the Broncos overcome as a child has put a lot into perspective for me and the way I look at my team. Unlike many fans of teams that have never won the big one in do not live in fear that we may never win the Lombardi. Losing to the best offense in history with the best quarterback in history would be an honor compared to never making it this far.

May the best team win!!!

Go Hawks!!!!!!

I will say I much prefer this to the normal opposing team trolls.

Wilson/Lynch are no Elway/Davis. I do like those guys though. That Lynch run against the Saints in the playoffs a couple years ago was epic.

Every time I see someone just use the last name "Lynch" I can only think of John Lynch.

It takes me a second to remember they have a player with that last name. lol

Go Broncos, and thanks for the cool story bro!

The good thing about being an old-school Seahawks fan is that you are used to being the Broncos' b****.

But seriously, good post. May the best team win.

Agree, all of it. Wilson has a long ways to go before he is Elway but I like the kid. I do understand the OP's desire to win it all after so many frustrating years. But as stated the Hawks are going against the most prolific O in history. Have always been a believer in defense winning championships but also believe if a D steps up to compliment it's O they win championships also. See the 97 Broncos who didn't have a chance against the GB D.

I wish Seattle was like a 10 point favorite.

In year 2 Elway was also not the player he would eventually become. Wilson in year two is much closer to the NFL Champion Elway would become than the sophomore Elway was.

I think you are stretching it a bit to say he's at Champion Elways level, he's pretty much at sophomore Elway's level, maybe statistically better but not take it on his own shoulders better.

Our resident trolls usually morph into new profiles. Mostly bitter chiefs fans. I don't see you as being one, as you can actually spell and your sentence structure doesn't resemble Larry Seller's homework.
