That dosnt mean a thing at all.
That means some people recognize we have some talented players.
That doesnt mean they respect the seahawks.
Sending people to the probowl doesnt change the way people see a team.
How many people did the Chiefs send to the Pro Bowl? Are they scaring anyone?
I dont just mean this season, i mean overall.
in 05/06 when the Seahawks went to the superbowl, i remember SOOOOO many people wanted the Steelers to win just because they didnt know who the Seahawks were. And being like " how did this team even get here?? The Steelers are going to kill them"
Not realizing it was the Steelers who were lucky to be there and squeaked by in the play offs and the Seahawks was the team dominating the teams they played in the playoffs.
So my point being, no matter how actually good the Seahawks have been, people look over them just because they are the Seahawks, not the Niners, Cowboys, Steelers, Patriots, Colts, etc.
And we, as fans, have had to just sit by and take it, and take it, and listen to the media be like " this teams pretty good, but they just dont have what it takes"
And now with the team we have, We are taking respect, one season isnt good enough.
If next season rolls around. and the Niners, Packers, Vikings, Redskins, or teams like that, get "hot" the Seahawks will be looked over again, even if they are doing just as good.
But now, we have a player like Sherman, and pretty much most of our team, they just wont be as vocal, But Sherman will take that disrespect and MAKE SURE people know exactly how disrespected they feel.
