I just ran across this article and wanted to share it with the masses of my blog-readers (all 3).
"For a couple of weeks -- I'd say those consecutive wins over the Eagles and Niners by a combined score of 83-3 to begin this month probably did it for most people -- the Seahawks have been widely regarded as the best team in the NFC. I'm not so sure about that anymore. No, Seattle's the best team in the NFL."
"Maybe it's because they're the Seahawks or because they have a history of failure (no playoff wins since 1984) or because their 13 wins equal the combined victory total of the other three teams in the NFC West, but I keep coming across football folk who don't believe in Seattle. I'm not one of them. They're the most complete team in football, with no glaring weaknesses other than the level of their competition. As good as Chicago's defense is, it would be an upset if the Seahawks don't emerge from the NFC.
Should Seattle meet the Colts again, it'll be interesting, for sure. If I had to make a prediction today, I'd pick the better team to win it all.
Right now, that team is the Seahawks."
Read the full article for a more detailed breakdown. Now I just hope he didn't jinx it.
