The “Suck for Luck” campaign is a popular one with a simple premise: root for your NFL team to suck, so they may find themselves in better position to draft Stanford quarterback (and expected 2012 No. 1 overall draft pick) Andrew Luck. It’s a fad that’s sweeping the nation…or at least cities across the nation with mediocre-to-bad football teams.
Your 2011 Seattle Seahawks were once thought to be among the favorites in the Suck for Luck sweepstakes. Armed with two question-mark quarterbacks, a fragile offensive line, and the youngest roster in the league, there was no denying that all the pieces were in place for a sucky Luckfest.
Alas, five games into the new year, the Hawks may very well be better than anyone expected. With a 2-3 record under their belt, they are less sucky than nine other teams across the vast expanse of the NFL.
