I'm getting annoyed by the lack of faith in the Seahawks chances to capture the NFC West.
With Kap under center the odds of Arizona pulling off an upset in week 17 have increased, IMO. Arizona has a good defensive line and talent in their secondary, just like everyone else in the NFC West. And, sans the game in Arizona, it’s not like the 49ers are blowing the doors off their opponents. Even Miami hung VERY tough with SF, in Candlestick, by simply being able to apply pressure. The West is not lost, yet. Arizona isn't going to be intimidated to play the 49ers like the Patriots were to start the game. That Arizona team has some pride, and will be playing their tail off, since literally nothing will be at stake.
In the beginning of the year, and as recent as the Miami game I've been VERY critical of Bevell. I posted after the Rams loss that I didn't understand the offensive struggles, the Seahawks can run at will with a dual-threat QB who can make every throw imaginable. Well, based on what Pete said yesterday, that was intentional to not overload Wilson too early. You cant argue with what's taking place now, but Im still of the opinion the offense could've been opened up earlier with the same results. Wilson's that special of a player. But, the point is, THIS IS THE SEAHAWKS OFFENSE.
Yes, the numbers the past two weeks are inflated by inferior play from opponents, but the Seahawks caused alot of that. Those plays where Sidney and Miller caught the ball, with no one around them has ALOT to do with how dangerous the Hawks offense is now. The X and O'd some amazing opportunities the past two weeks. And, they can do that because, they're just THAT GOOD. Trick plays, read-option, bootlegs, Wilson's scrambling ability, Marshaun up the gut, Turbin on the wheel route, there's so much that a defense has to be weary of.
This IS the Seahawks offense. It's not the competition - this is them!
