Each team's chances of success in the playoffs

  • Read the NFL.com article outlining each team's chances of success or failure in the playoffs based on their strengths and weaknesses. Rather hastily put together in my opinion, but the little blurb they have on the Seahawks is about right. They could have also mentioned the lack of a pass rush as a liability.

    From the article:

    5) Seattle Seahawks (11-5)
    How do they make a deep run? They carry their momentum right through the postseason. Russell Wilson continues to play clutch, mistake-free football, while Marshawn Lynch grinds out tough yards. The defense continues to create high numbers of turnovers and finds the end zone a few times, as well.

    How do they get eliminated? An opponent stacks the box to take away Lynch, and the athletic Wilson is contained. The lack of a true No. 1 receiver ends up being an issue, and the offensive production takes a nosedive.
    "The ultimate number is W's, and that’s what matters in Santa Clara. As such, Jed York does not own the 49ers; Russell Wilson does." - Paul Gutierrez
