Seahawks Make a Big Impact

7- Rapposelli- PromotionalThe Seattle Seahawks are quite possibly the most feared team in the NFL at this moment. With an incredible defense and dynamic offense, this team is almost impossible to stop. When they are playing at home, it makes for a much taller task for the opponent.

“They will be impossible to beat at home.  The atmosphere is too crazy for any team to defeat an already very solid team,” junior Tyler Emge said.

They call them the “12th man.” The Seattle supporters are the loudest fan base for any NFL team. They recently set the noise record for the loudest outdoor sports stadium, which was recorded at 137.6 decibels. The rowdiness of the home fans could quite possibly have played a large role in some of the team’s win, including the win over the former 9-2 New Orleans Saints.

“The Seahawks are the best team in the NFL, and I think it would be pretty cool to see them win the Super Bowl,” junior Gary Gabriel said.

Another advantage the Seahawks have is their superstar quarter back, Russel Wilson. Wilson, in his sophomore season, has played tremendously throughout his NFL career. He led Seattle to their first winning season since 2007 and took them to the playoffs, where they fell to the Atlanta Falcons 30-28.

This year will most likely be a different story as the team sits at the top seed of the entire league in the power rankings. Seattle has only lost one time this season, to the Indianapolis Colts earlier on.

The “Legion of Boom” is what the team calls the majority of the Seahawk’s defense, a defense that is considered to be the best in the entire NFL. They held a great quarterback in Drew Brees to just seven points in a game.

It will be interesting to see how the rest of the season plays out. Does any team have a chance at stopping them?  Possibly Denver, which is also highly praised, mainly because of another top quarterback, Peyton Manning.
