Fact: Your team struggles the week after playing the Seahawks

shermThe Seattle Seahawks are a very solid football team, that sometimes get into your head mentally.  The Seahawks are a hard hitting team, that is really physical. They are so physical that you have to prepare for them in a different way.  You have to prepare to be careful with the ball, and throw the ball away instead of taking a chance on a cornerback like Richard Sherman. 

The Seahawks have had a really tough affect on teams this year.  When you play them they beat you up on the field and off the field, you cannot prepare correctly.  The last eight teams to face the Seahawks have lost the week after to their next opponent.  That is how badly the Hawks put a whoopin on you according to Peter King’s Monday Morning Quarterback.

 “It’ll be interesting to see how Philadelphia comes out of the Seattle game physically,’’ said one Dallas Cowboy last week, before his team’s trip to Philadelphia for the Sunday night game. This player remembered how physically spent the Cowboys were after playing Settle earlier in the year, and said it could be a big factor in how the team recovered to play the next week. Well, maybe he is on to something. The Eagles are the eighth team in a row to lose the week after playing Seattle; Philadelphia, San Francisco, Arizona, Kansas City, the New York Giants, Oakland, Carolina and St. Louis all lost the week after playing the Seahawks. The Seattle Effect bodes well for San Diego’s playoff chances. Not only do the Chargers play San Francisco, which lost to Seattle on Sunday, but the game is on Saturday, so the Niners have one fewer day to recover from playing the Seahawks.
