Wow. Sad and interesting that the Seahawks have ties to the worst two teams ever to make the playoffs - were the second, lost to the first. Bleh!
But the fact that we're coming into this as the second best (and as a probable wild card!) is pretty amazing. This team is starting to look like a legitimate contender for at least the next few years. Our "window of opportunity" is just starting to open, and we're already a strong team going into this year's playoffs. That's a pretty good place to be as an organization.
Edit: and an interesting quote from Bradshaw regarding this sort of thing:

Our Terry Bradshaw: "If the #BEARS make the playoffs, they will be the worst team to make it in." #NFLSUNDAY #Week17
I know it's not DVOA, but hey.
