It was a sad day for Seahawks fans after a wild-card loss in Texas on Saturday night.
Despite being eliminated from the playoffs, the 12's who attended the game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington say they are satisfied that the Hawks gave it their all, especially during what many thought of as a rebuilding year.
"It was a great game, great season," one fan said. "We didn't even expect to go this far. So, go Hawks. We're going to be better next year."
A fan from Leavenworth who flew to Texas to watch the Hawks play says it was supposed to be a "transition year" for the team after so many changes in the off-season.
"And, look, we made the playoffs," he said. "I'm so proud of them."
The Seahawks started the season 0-2 with a 27-24 loss to the Broncos followed by a 24-17 loss to the Bears. But they were able to turn things around, despite a few bumps in the road to the playoffs.
In early December, the Seahawks were looking like an entirely different team than they were the first few weeks. A return to the run game was a huge factor. A lack of turnovers was another, which coach Pete Carroll gave credited to quarterback Russell Wilson.
From a 0-2 record, the Seahawks entered the playoffs 10-6.
But they were unable to recreate that same success Saturday when they played the Cowboys.
