While plenty of fine dramas have hit the stage over the past few months, it’s hard for them to the compare to the juicy storylines of the Seahawks’ offseason. The Seahawks used a third-round draft pick to select Russell Wilson, the quarterback from Wisconsin who—by the NFL’s general conventions—is “too short” to play quarterback in this league. He’s gone on to eviscerate opponents’ defenses this preseason and unexpectedly win the starting job. (A word of caution to Hawks fans: “Preseason” played a key role in that last sentence.) The team doled out dollars and signed the best free agent quarterback on the market—Matt Flynn—only to make him into an absurdly overpaid clipboard holder. A few weeks ago, the club signed the ever-brash wide receiver Terrell Owens, but unceremoniously cut him over the weekend. The team even managed to rid itself of its previous starting quarterback—the often painful-to-watch Tarvaris Jackson—via a trade with the Buffalo Bills. With one of the NFL’s best defenses already in place, it’s hard not to be optimistic about the team’s potential playoff hopes.
Seahawks single-game tickets went on sale this morning at 10am. High-profile games against the Packers and Patriots are selling very quickly, so if there was ever a time for an impulse purchase, this is it.
