My initial reaction was of disgust. I turned the channel after that 49ers TD in the third quarter. But then, I remembered what really matters.
We have Russell Wilson.
The Seahawks are only the third team in NFL history to post back-to-back 50+ point games.
Okay, I'm too lazy to go search all the other fun stats pertinent to the Hawks right now but the point is clear. This 2012 Seattle Seahawks team is no joke. Even when they don't play their best defense, the defense manages to make game-changing plays. Even when we lose some of our top defensive players, our backups step in and step up. The depth of this team is ridiculous.
We may or may not win the division this year but more importantly, this team is going to be scary good for YEARS to come.
Thank you Paul Allen. Thank you Pete Carroll. Thank you John Schneider.
I'm not going to waste another moment lamenting on what could have been with the 49ers/Patriots game. What I am going to do is re-watch the Seahawks/Bills game tonight in total bliss of not only what IS but what WILL BE.
