Congratulations from a Ravens fan! I came here last year when we were getting ready to play you all, and I thought that this really was a team with a bright future under Carroll. This team has surpassed pretty much everyone's expectations.
I've always rooted for small, underappreciated markets like my own, so I've always had an affinity for the Seahawks. In the DC/Baltimore area it is hard to find Seattle games on television often but when it didn't interfere with the Ravens games, I made the time, and it's been such a pleasure to watch Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch, and the extremely impressive defense do what they do this year. I had a feeling it would culminate in a playoff berth and a lot of people are expecting the Seahawks to possibly make a run. I certainly hope so! First of all, living in Redskins county, I cannot stand the fans and I really want them shut up. But also, the Seahawks have become my favorite team other than the Ravens to watch and are without question my favorite NFC team.
Russell Wilson is truly inspirational and a joy to watch. Someone who was told he's not tall enough to play QB in the NFL is doing as good a job as anyone else. I hear things about how hard he works and it just makes me like him even more. Without question he should be Rookie of the Year, but I wouldn't be surprised to see RG3 get it because of the market size. Regardless of what happens from here on out, what Seattle has done this season is truly impressive and I believe they will continue to be a force for years to come. So, congratulations, and be proud of your team.
I hope we see you guys in the Superbowl.
Oh, and happy new year!
