Biggest Win Ever: Seahawks Annihilate Cardinals

58-0.  Three big TD runs by Marshawn Lynch, one by Leon Washington.  A touchdown pass from Wilson to Zach Miller.  An interception for a score by Richard Sherman; a fumble recovery in the end zone by Malcolm Smith.  Three field goals by Steven Hauschka.  All told, 58 points by the Seahawks, a franchise record.

Biggest shutout victory, biggest margin of victory.  Sheer, unadulterated domination.

Just two weeks ago, I was thoroughly disgusted with this football team.  Today?  I couldn’t be happier.  It’s the life of a sports fan.  Highs and lows, ups and downs.  Today, it’s an impossible high.  Discounting the stakes (because, really, it’s just a regular season home game against one of the worst teams in football), today is as good as it gets.

Today was LITERALLY a laugher.  I found myself cracking up throughout.  John Skelton’s ineptitude en route to 74 yards passing, 4 INTs and a fumble.  Ryan Lindley’s somehow-even-greater ineptitude en route to 59 yards passing, and a fumble.  Larry Fitzgerald’s one reception for two yards late in the 4th quarter.  Patrick Peterson’s two fumbles on special teams.  We’re talking about 8 turnovers!  This Seahawks team forced 8 fucking turnovers!  8 turnovers, 3 sacks, 2 touchdowns, and 0 points; it was the single greatest defensive fantasy football day of all time!

Absolutely amazing, from top to bottom.  We more than doubled our point differential on the season, now at +98.  We just jumped to +8 in turnover differential.  We’re currently 5th in the playoff seeding, still with an outside shot at 2nd if everything breaks right.

Tonight, if feels good to be a Seahawks fan.  It’ll feel even better if Detroit can find a way to beat Green Bay …
