Kid Reporter: NFC Contenders

The NFC is making for a great contest throughout this season.  The Saints played well this week, pulling of a exciting game against Carolina and improving their record after the bad loss the week before in Seattle.  I think Carolina did not have the determination as the Saints did to prove themselves from the previous week.    Over the course of watching games on Sunday, there was some amazing plays - games in freezing temperatures and the will of team spirit and drive to acc

Over the course of watching games on Sunday, there was some amazing plays - games in freezing temperatures and the will of team spirit and drive to accomplish exciting games and outcomes.  The endurance of snowy weather and tenacity of all the players throughout the league as we come close to the playoffs is a real treat to witness.  I am really enjoying this seasons matchups.

 

I believe the Seattle Seahawks are unstoppable.  The 12th Man is alive and proud.  I think the Seahawks will represent the NFC in the Super Bowl and win!

Kid Reporter: Match Up the Week

I believe Brady and Manning are a great match-up. Manning and the Broncos are really in sync.  After watching each team play this week; I think the Broncos will be able to continue their winning ways and beat the Patriots.... soundly.  Although the Patriots put together a drive to get down the field in less than a minute... to get close at the end of the game this week, the Broncos played consistent throughout the game and made adjustments as the game went along.  Given

Overtime Regulations

Be so good, they can't ignore you.   The one rule I would change is the regular season overtime rules. I do not feel there should be the opportunity to end a game in a tie. The fans want a clear answer to who is the winner of each game because that gives us a clear view to how teams are performing in the standings without question or debate. I think fans want an immediate response to who won, instead of waiting until the end of the season for the tie breaking rules. I would like to see over

The Super Bowl

Our family gathers throughout the season to watch the games and see who is moving through the Playoffs toward the big game. This year's Super Bowl challenge is an interesting one for me. I am not invested in either of the teams that made it into the Super Bowl. I have not even decided which team to root for. I think their will be some really great plays as both teams have drive, determination and skilled players. I think it will come down to who plays the game with more desire. I am looking forw

I think their will be some really great plays as both teams have drive, determination and skilled players. I think it will come down to who plays the game with more desire. I am looking forward to a close game, with good referees and a spirited crowd cheering for the Super Bowl champions.

Thoughts about the Divisional Playoffs...

I was happy the Seahawks made it to the Divisional Playoffs. They have shown to be a great team. They are all working together to make a better unit and move to the highest levels possible. I was really bummed that they were not able to beat the Atlanta Falcons last weekend... :( I am hoping that the Ravens and Falcons make it to the Super Bowl. I think the Ravens will take the honor of this year's Champions. They have looked cohesive and hard working.   I am looking forward to watching nex

I am hoping that the Ravens and Falcons make it to the Super Bowl. I think the Ravens will take the honor of this year's Champions. They have looked cohesive and hard working.

 

I am looking forward to watching next season's games unfold and what kind of elite team the Seahawks will construct. --- Thanks for a great season!

 

My Team in the Playoffs!

My team, the Seattle Seahawks, is in the Playoffs!  I think they will make it to the Super Bowl. Their first match-up is with the Washington Redskins, I think my team will be able to advance for several reasons.    Marshawn Lynch will enter the Beast Mode!  Wilson and the offense will make a lot of great yard advancing plays and touchdowns.  Sherman and the defense will cause total chaos, by interceptions, defensive stops and sacks.  The special teams

Marshawn Lynch will enter the Beast Mode!  Wilson and the offense will make a lot of great yard advancing plays and touchdowns.  Sherman and the defense will cause total chaos, by interceptions, defensive stops and sacks.  The special teams unit will help with field position and I hope a few points, because they deserve it. 

 

The Seahawks are an awesome team, I think they will make it all the way because of highly skilled individuals working together for team unity and fulfillment.

New Kid Reporter Roman: My Favorite Player

The Seahawks are playing so awesome this season, I find it hard to pick only one player as my favorite.    My standout player is Marshawn Lynch, because he has run a lot of yards and protects the quarterback by being an outlet for him to quickly pass the ball to. Lynch is amazing at freeing himself from defenders and getting open for the ball from Wilson. This helps the team advance the ball and score points. I am impressed with Lynch also because he likes Skittles, whic

I am impressed with Lynch also because he likes Skittles, which makes him more relatable and real to me.

 

The entire team works really hard to not only work on the team atmosphere, but also get out into the community to help inspire kids to be active and healthy.   When I think of the Seahawks and the abilities everyone has, I compare them to my family.  The Seahawks are able to bring together many different styles, ideas and plans - by working together, they are able to excel.

My Super Kid Game!

I entered the Quaker NFL PLAY 60 contest, answering three questions about being fit and healthy; I was lucky enough to win!  The prize was two tickets to a Seahawks game… and the Seahawks honored me by adding sideline passes to watch up close and personal the warm-ups before the game began!                  The amazing prize was to be on the game just before Christmas, the Seahawks versus the 49ers. 

I entered the Quaker NFL PLAY 60 contest, answering three questions about being fit and healthy; I was lucky enough to win!  The prize was two tickets to a Seahawks game… and the Seahawks honored me by adding sideline passes to watch up close and personal the warm-ups before the game began! 

               

The amazing prize was to be on the game just before Christmas, the Seahawks versus the 49ers.  My mom and I drove up to the game early, so we could sight see while in Seattle.  I was able to check out the Asian Market and the Seahawks ProShop! 

 

The stadium is an inspiring experience, after clearing security, my mom and I were led onto the field for the pre-game warm-ups.  I was able to stand on the 10-yard line and watch the players run, perform drills, kick field goals and practice catching thrown footballs from simulated snaps… Really amazing experience!  While watching the warm-ups, a ball holder came by us an allowed me to hold the official ball and have my picture taken with it – I could not have been a happier kid!

 

Once the warm-ups were done, we found our seats for the game, located in the season ticket holders’ area of the end zone, in section 120, Row M – we were front and center to witness the blocked field goal, and it felt like I was right in the middle of the action!  The nice people behind us, allowed me to stand on the seat so I could see the field better, and every time the Seahawks scored a touchdown, I turned a circle to give high fives to everyone!... they were so nice to be around, I felt like I belonged. 

 

The game was so loud; it was like listening to people on the Extreme Scream at the Puyallup Fair!  My mom and I came away a little hoarse from so much cheering, I think we helped with a couple of the forced timeouts and false starts the 49ers had. 

 

As half-time approached, it snowed for a few minutes, which was a nice addition to the constant drizzle we were in.  It gave a little magical touch to the atmosphere of the game.  I had an awesome experience, and for my first ever game – the Seahawks and the people involved with allowing me the honor of the experience – did not disappoint!  I would totally recommend going to see a game live, the amped up atmosphere is something you just cannot get from staying at home!

 

Thank you to the Seahawks, Quaker, and NFL PLAY 60 for allowing me to have one the best memories of my life – a day spent with my mom in a game that was epic, on the field, in the stands and giving me the gift of a cherished memory that will never fade.

 

Thank you also to Miss Hefele for chatting with my mother and setting in motion all the steps that needed to happen in order for my first NFL experience to be beyond what I could have imagined.  Miss Hefele, you are greatly appreciated!
