The seasons prior to 1991, the Cowboys finished 7-9 and featured as similar mindset to run the ball and win with defense highlighted by the strength of Emmitt Smith's running. The team started out competitive then finished strong, much like we did last season.
1991 Cowboys started the season as a fringe possible playoff team, as with the prior season they were competitive in the beginning of the season but lost some heart-breakers in the middle, then turned it on to finish strong including a 5 game winning streak to finish 2nd in the NFC East with an especially thorough butt kicking of Eagles on the road. (A team that handled them early in the season and swept them the previous year) Finished 11-5 and won at Chicago as a wildcard only to lose to the Lions in the divisional round. This was also the first playoffs Dallas made in a number of seasons and after the Chicago win people were thinking this team could perhaps make it to the superbowl only to get smoked by a nobody QB in Detroit, unlike Wilson's record breaking Seahawks playoff performance in Atlanta.
The next season, the Cowboys would kick off the dynasty years with it's first of 3 Superbowl victories and finishing the season with the number one defense that was also 1st at stopping the run. The team was also the youngest in the league.
I don't know if Seattle will win a championship, let alone a dynasty, but the similarities between the two teams and history is striking. Of course, the bitter acknowledgement he is the 1992 Seahawks were terrible on offense and somehow finished 2nd in overall defense, sigh. I really hope that this parallel plays out just to get that one championship would be sweet for Seattle.
