Take the ultimate sideline pass into the Seattle locker room with an insider’s view of the Seahawks Gameday as they are victorious over the San Francisco 49ers.
Internally, the Seahawks approached the season opener as if it were a title bout.
Punch after punch on Sunday, they sure delivered.
From start to finish and then some, the 31-6 victory over the 49ers sent a message loud and clear — not outwardly as much as inside the Seahawks locker room. More than anything else, the season-starting win supplied a powerful declaration to the players and coaches about their capabilities and potential for the season ahead.
“It was our first chance to lay a foundation for building a championship team,” Coach Pete Carroll, buoyed by excitement and joy, told his players in the locker room on Sunday afternoon after the win. “You bought in from Day 1 and gave us an opportunity to do this.”
“This” happened to be an offensive and defensive overpowering of San Francisco, a season-opening statement that showed the Seahawks are ready to answer Carroll’s call of gunning for the NFC West crown this fall.
“Every game is a championship game,” the head coach said during his Saturday night speech at the team hotel. “You can never gauge which game is more important — we’ve got to play every game like it’s the championship game so when we get to that point, we will know how to play like champions.
“Now is championship time.”
