I actually don't quite get your point. Are you not aware that it's long since been proven that other stats besides won/loss record are far better predictors of future success? Research shows that won/loss record is affected to a very significant degree by chance because of the small sample of games during the course of the season. For an obvious example this year, Russell Wilson had two QBR scores in the top 40 this year year where Seattle still lost the game. This almost never happens, but sometimes it does, due to bad luck.
Or are you saying that despite clear evidence that the Seahawks are very, very good, the accident of the variance in our current won/loss record will cause us to miss an opportunity at the championship? This doesn't seem right either. Football Outsiders had our chances of making the playoffs at like 78%, I think, before this last win. It should be even higher now.
