    Advice for nervous Seahawks fans

    Advice for nervous Seahawks fans: Remember the Titans
    June 18, 2006
    By Mike Sando
    Special to CBS SportsLine.com




    One thing about the new Seattle Seahawks: They're not afraid to rewrite history.

    That's good for them, because history says the 2006 'Hawks are doomed to finish 7-9, if they're lucky.

    You know the story about Super Bowl losers. They keep losing and losing right on through the next season.

    It has happened for five years running.

    "This is more of a beginning," New York Giants guard Glenn Parker said after his team unwittingly kicked off the streak with a 34-7 loss to Baltimore in Super Bowl XXXV. "We can build and get better."

    Better than 6-10, he must have meant. The Giants were 7-9 in 2001.

    The St. Louis Rams' turn came next. Their upset loss to New England in Super Bowl XXXVI had the look of an aberration. That Rams team was loaded with talent on offense and seemingly primed for a long run.

    "I told them never to forget this feeling, how painful it is," then-coach Mike Martz said after the Patriots' 20-17 victory, "and that we'll be back."

    Back to mediocrity, he must have meant. The Rams went 7-9 the following season. They've enjoyed one winning season since.

    The pattern was set. Oakland went from defeat in Super Bowl XXXVII to 4-12 in 2003. Carolina slipped from its loss in Super Bowl XXXVIII to 7-9 in 2004. Philadelphia went from runner-up in Super Bowl XXXIX to run-off-the-road last season (6-10).

    Now Seattle is on the clock. Glenn Parker and Mike Martz weren't available to provide the obligatory quotes, but 'Hawks coach Mike Holmgren didn't need any help.

    "While we had a great year last year, and we're happy for the fans and the stadium is full and all those good things that happened last year, there is some unfinished business," Holmgren said.

    Risky business, he must have meant.

    "Integrity is the formula of who a person Is or Is not"

    The article is about teams that LOSE the Superbowl. True, Tampa Bay slid BIGtime, but they won in their appearance in the big game, which is why they aren't mentioned.

    Seattle has a few "curses" to break this year (runner-up in Super Bowl, Chunky Soup and of course, Madden). I believe they are strong enough to debunk all of them.
