Have the Seahawks Fallen Victim to ‘The Ciara Curse?’
The Seahawks are 0-2, Marshawn’s mom is mad and the Emerald City is in an uproar. The season is still young, of course, but Seattle’s odds of making the playoffs aren’t looking great. Even though they overcame a 3-3 start to make the Super Bowl last year, only 23 teams (out of 204) have bounced back from an 0-2 start and secured a playoff berth over the last 25 years, according to FTW.
In other words: Even though the Seahawks say they aren’t panicking, there’s reason to panic.
And, naturally, the 12th Man has begun its search for a scapegoat. Some blame Kam Chancellor, who is holding out in the hopes of securing a new contract. Others point to the team’s rebuilt offensive line as the reason for the slow start. And then there’s the group who believe the solution is rather simple: This shit is all Ciara’s fault.
Following Seattle’s 27-17 loss to the Packers on Sunday, a Seahawks fan started a GoFundMe page in the hopes of raising $50,000 to convince the singer to break up with boyfriend – and starting QB – Russell Wilson. The though process goes something like this: Wilson won his first Super Bowl while dealing with relationship drama (he and his wife announced they were divorcing soon after the ‘Hawks whipped the Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII) and, hey, look at how well Future’s been doing since he and Ciara split up.
Who needs any more evidence than that? Sadly, for whatever reason, the page didn’t last long – it’s since been deleted, leaving Seahawks fans with absolutely no hope for the rest of the season. Seriously, you guys might as well pack it in at this rate. But at least Twitter can act as a platform to discuss the “Ciara Curse,” which is beginning to draw comparisons to the terrifying “Madden Curse.”
If there’s one person who’s nodding their head in agreement, it’s Charlamagne.
