What Seahawks players are tweeting 'the day before the day before'

SEATTLE -- It's gut-check time, 12s.

The Seahawks are 2-3 following a disappointing loss in Cincinnati, where the Hawks blew a late 17-point lead to lose in overtime.

But the Seahawks have been down before. Last year, the team was 3-3 and staring at a Wild Card berth at best. They ended with home-field advantage that took them through the playoffs, winning nine of their last 10 games.

So we've been here before.

More importantly, the Hawks have been here before.

On Friday -- or as coach Pete Carroll would call it"The Day Before the Day Before" -- Seahawks players took to Twitter and Instgram to voice their enthusiasm, passion and commitment to the game of football. Check out their latest tweets below.

Coverage for the Panthers vs. Seahawks game begins at 12:30 p.m. Sunday at Q13 FOX.
