I should have been in Vegas the past few weeks.
I don't know if it's something I ate or what has gone on lately but for some fluky reason, I've been keying in on the fate of the Seahawks with accidental accuracy.
I look to this weekend to be no different. The Seahawks face a bewildering Bills team. Loaded with potential and some players very capable of handing the Hawks a very bad day. Yet, the game will be played on neutral ground, with an apathetic crowd in attendance, and a 1pm Pacific Northwest kickoff time to boot. None of this matters normally. But lately, there's nothing normal about this football team that's trending so high right now that you are hard pressed to find an NFL national media show that isn't finding time to squeeze in a little talk about the Seahawks in a warm and fuzzy light.
Unless you're Michael Irvin of course. But the windbag's disdain for the Seahawks should be insurance, not a hindrence, in our continued collective belief that the 2012 Seattle Seahawks are creating something very, very special right before our eyes.
Normally, this game is a loss for the Seahawks. Normally this pick is as decisive as it is with regret.
However, there is nothing normal currently going on with Mr. Wilson and the 2012 Seattle Super Seahawks.
With bravado, I proudly say, the Seahawks winning streak continues.

"It's gonna come down to the fourth quarter. It may go to overtime. I'm expecting something great to happen, some amazing play to win the game." - Soothsayer Russell Wilson, 3 days before the NFC Championship
