First off, what did Golden Tate eat that morning?

Okay, now on to the story.

On Thursday night, the Seattle Seahawks will play their first ever game as Super Bowl champions. If history has anything to say about it, the season will be a massive disappointment.

Now this streak began with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2006, a championship that should have been ours. So it’s only fitting that we would be the team to break the curse. But beyond the superstitions, this team is too talented not to make another playoff run.

The journey starts with a visit from the Green Bay Packers. According to, the Seahawks are 69% favorites to win. Let’s look a little deeper.
