SEAHAWKS: Team has brought us closer together

I don’t know if you have noticed lately, but we Washingtonions have become a closer, kinder, more passionate type of people.

SEAHAWKS: An improbable season

To the many diehard Seahawk fans who had a dream of their football team beating Chicago and advancing on to the Division Championship against Green Bay to possibly representing the NFC Conference in Super Bowl XXV, it seems such a fantasy came to once again, a predictable post-season outcome; another loss.

All the hype about Marshawn Lynch and “Beast Mode” was nullified on the frozen turf of Soldier Field amid an embarrassing and anemic running game. The Chicago Bears are rated as the best in the NFL against the run and the way they throttled the “Hulk” [Lynch] made
