Season Over For Seahawks

Seattle's season ended last night with a 36-20 defeat on the road to the Atlanta Falcons.  In a season where the balls didn't seem to bounce our way,  the 'Hawks won enough games to win it's division but never really seemed destined for this year's Super Bowl.  Injuries and player dissension seemed to hamper the season.  A high ankle sprain hampered Russell Wilson early in the year.  Earl Thomas was lost to a broken leg in the late season.  Richard Sherman seemed unmanageable.
The Seahawks started out with a bang in yesterday's game, scoring on the games first drive.  The momentum shifted when an 80 long punt return by Devin Hester was wiped out by a penalty.  This resulted in an eventual safety.  This put the Hawks in an insurmountable deficit on the road against the Falcon's.  The Falcon's have the league's most explosive offense.
Just like last year the Seahawks, the Hawks are out on the second round,  We'll hope for better results next season.

Number 2 looks a bit sad.
