All through the NFL media world I'm hearing about the Seahawks. But instead of in the context of failing this season all the way to a high pick in the 2019 Draft (or the #1 pick according to the usually insightful Benjamin Allbright, @AllbrightNFL on Twitter), its in the context of being "dangerous" and "surging" toward the playoffs.
Sitting here with the Seahawks at 6-5, with 4 of the last 5 games at home, I reflect back on Seahawks teams of the past. The ones filled with All-Pros and Pro Bowlers. Specifically on how the Seahawks seemed to start seasons slowly. If this season's team defends home field, they will be a double digit winning team at 10-6. I don't believe many reasonable fans were expecting such a record for this season. So here they are, making another mid to late season push that they always have and consequently have got the rest of the league having flashbacks of the fear they had when seeing the Seahawks on their late season schedule.
I ask you though, what is it about these Seahawks that are different from those teams?
Shirley Surely, losing all those All Stars cost them games, but how many? Who has the Seahawks missed the most this season? Also, who has been the player or players leading this team on their march to the playoffs?
