Found October 23, 2012 on Seahawk Addicts:
Last Thursday’s road game against the 49ers was supremely frustrating to watch.  The Seahawks looked awful, and that’s led to a lot of fans voicing opinions of the “fire coach X and/or bench player Y” variety.  That’s understandable, but I think it’s premature to be calling for changes that drastic.  Right now, the Seahawks are 3-0 at home and 1-3 on the road, with one more road game in Detroit coming up on Sunday to finish out the first half of the season.  If they can sweep at home and win just one of their remaining four road games, that’ll give them a 10-6 record – not enough to win the division, probably, but good enough to put them in contention for a wild card berth.  Granted, sweeping at home is going to be tough considering one of those games is going to be a rematch with the 49ers, but losing that one home game would still leave Seattle with a 9-7 record, which wouldn't be enough wins to make the playoffs but would give the team its first winning season since 2007.  Be h

Seattle to be without WR Doug Baldwin vs. Detroit
