Seahawks are #4 in the final NFL Power Rankings. What's interesting is looking at the teams who we are ranked ahead of. Think back to the beginning of the season and realize how far this team has come in one year. Amazing.
If he was going to give Atlanta the #1 spot back then because they were the only undefeated team even though he and everyone knew they suck, atleast give us #3 cus we beat the patriots. Of course it doesn't matter. Teams can have the #1-2-3 ... we'll take the Superbowl.
I can only imagine the massive erections brought about in this forum by the placement of us at #9. For a fleeting moment, we had lost any legitimate opportunity to bitch about being underrated by the media.
The NFL power ranking makes more sense as it has the 49ers and Packers below us. ESPN pretty much mirrors the teams records and doesn't take into consideration momentum, margin of victory, season trends, etc.
Now they don't take into account, kneel downs, passes that are dropped or the like. But this is the closest I can find. But it's really just for arguments sake, nothing but the a Superbowl win will matter in the end.
