    I think this tells you how many mediocre teams there are right now in the league. There are only 4-5 very good teams, 4-5 very bad teams and everyone else is in the middle somewhere, including us.


    Isn't this how it is every year?

    Talent can get you to the playoffs.
    It takes character to win when you get there.

    I think this year it's worse with so many 2-3, 2-2 and 3-2 teams. There are entire divisions with every team at or around .500.

    But that's what the NFL wants right? Parity.

    So debating on whether we're #12 or #22 in the power rankings is silly to me, cause I think there's very little difference this year.
    If there is no Seahawk football in heaven, then we will never die.

  • I would like the team to finish this season ranking in the range of 10 to 14; ie with a remote chance of making playoff, but definitely set up nicely for the next two years.

    To achieve that, our team must have winning percentage for the rest of regular season games.

    I sort of agree but it’s the NFL. Someone has to lose.

    I think we over categorize teams. Personally I think the NFL is arguably the best it’s ever been, with room to get better. Even Mitch Trubisky is on a great team right now. Watching football lately has been the first I’ve felt like most games can be a toss up. For example, we SHOULD whoop the Raiders. But they’ve shown an ability to score points. Carr is capable of a good game. The Browns can arguably compete with anybody. The Eagles have the talent to finish strong. The Giants are literally a Quarterback away from being absolute BEASTS on offense. They’re loaded at the skill positions. The Vikings still present a challenge. Cousins is capable of an amazing game. The Cowboys can be a problem next year with a stud WR and a new O-coordinator

    I can go on and on, but there is indeed a lot of parity in the league and I’d be nervous to bet on most games. Even the teams with a losing record are capable of upsetting a contender. Heck, most fans think the Seahawks are done, but any team would be foolish to underestimate us on any given Sunday

    For sure. Parity IS the reason the NFL is so popular.

    Any year any team can go 3-13 and turn it around and make the playoffs the next year. What other league can that happen in? Every other pro sports league is the have and have nots based on massive team salaries or who has the most stars.

    That's all any sports fan asks for..............hope.

    On the flip side...those that called the "very good Bronco's team" we lost to.....don't look now but 2-4 and #26. They've beat us and the Raiders....that is it.
    i looked at that list, then I looked at the remaining of our schedule.
