All you have to do is look at those odds to know just how real the possibility of a Seattle championship is.
10-6, Second in the NFC West
They Are the Champs Until Someone Proves Otherwise
I wasn’t joking about that best Wild Card team ever stuff. I haven’t run the math but has there ever been a WC team that played in the previous two Super Bowls, winning one.
They just beat the Cardinals on the road and will bring as much swagger as anybody into the playoffs. The old adage is that you are the champs until someone takes it from you.
Nobody has taken it yet.
The last couple of years Wilson has been sharp in leading Seattle but this year he has suddenly become of the most productive QBs in the league. When he is hot…look out.
His play is going to be that much more important this season because the status of Marshawn Lynch and the running game is still questionable. If the Seahawks do raise another Lombardi Trophy there is no way he is going to be an afterthought this year.
Defense…and More Defense
If you believe in the adage that defense wins championships than Seattle has to be the play. The finished the season leading the league in points and rushing yards allowed, while finish second in passing and total yards.
I have not run the numbers against their past couple of teams but you don’t have to – it is plain to see that it is tough to move the ball against this group. Plus it means they can win all different types of games.
Peaking at the Right Time
Seattle has won six of seven and eight of ten to close the year.
They also just hammered Arizona. I might not read too much into that win specifically but it is easy to argue that nobody is playing better than they are right now.
Getting hot at the right time is critical in the NFL. You only have to win a few games to win it all and this group has proven it can go on a run.
They Just Might Be the Best Team
Their experience is well documented and the number don’t lie – first in defense and fifth in scoring. It took a little while for them to get over their Super Bowl hangover but once they did they have looked great and seem to be the most complete team.
Not as healthy as they might want to be at the RB position but other than that they look great.
