I really mean that. I'm looking forward to the Seahawks "shocking" the NFL with a deep playoff run that any savvy football mind wouldn't have found surprising at all.
I think once we beat SF we're going to jump considerably up this ranking. 10-5 with wins against all the top teams is pretty funkin solid.
I asked for it early on that this team be run through Wilson and now it is (now that he's ready). Marshawn is still obviously a huge threat, but Wilson has taken us to that next level. I feel comfortable winning games without having to run (and visa versa).
We're not going to squeak our way into the playoffs, we're going to bust the doors down.
