Look at this. http://www.footballoutsiders.com/dvoa-r ... oa-ratings

We're #4 overall in the NFL per Football Outsiders as of right now, and trending upward. We have the 5th-ranked offense, 6th-ranked defense, and 3rd-ranked special teams.

<Cue Mike Mayock> Are you kidding me?

We are playing some very good, balanced football as of late. Despite our defense crapping the bed late in Miami and us not generating much pressure recently, we're still ranked well. This kind of high-end balance bodes very well for winning in January. I expect our defense will drop off some more if Browner and Sherman are suspended, so we'll see what happens there; but if we can keep performing well across the board, we're in the playoffs and poised to do some winning.

:179422:, anybody?

Defense is a huge cause for concern to me, stats or not. Fortunately we got 3 of 4 at home. To go deep in playoffs we need home games IMO.........oh, and Mike Carey NOT officiating our games.

After the Miami game we were the worst team in the league though. Amazing how quickly these things change.

I think we probably are the fourth best team. Our worst defeat was by seven points. We play competitive close games every week. We have a strength of schedule superior to nearly every other team currently set for the playoffs. And as we get older, more experienced - we'll win more of those close games.

Not a homer either... been critical in the past. These are exciting times though. And if we get to the post season, nobody is going to look forward to playing Seattle. Home or on the road.

Assuming the Seahawks make it in, is there any concern out there about the puppet masters who pull the strings on this sports entertainment attempt to "make things right"? I think if we face the Packers, it will be predetermined that the Seahawks lose, via officiating.

After the game that shall not be spoken, I have lost all faith in outcomes not being manipulated.

The game at Chi-town was fixed for officiating, and we still won. Our offense is really coming into its own.

I'll feel a lot better when we know what's happening with Browner and Sherman. I can see the NFL sticking it to us so we're missing them through the first two rounds of the playoffs.

I want to see our defense return to early season form before I can predict playoff wins.

I don't know about a fix but there was obvious Bias there.

We have only 17 takeaways in 12 games and our pass rush has all but disappeared. If we can get some turnovers and consistent pressure on the QB, we are as good as any team in the league. If not, we are one-and-done in the playoffs if we even get there.

Heaven help the defenses we play the rest of this year because half the LOB is gone. RW is about to hoist this team on his shoulders and carry it into the post season.

There's steam rising from it due to how hot under the collar he is over looking like a douche for hating on Wilson so much.

Our defense has to shape up a bit to make a deep playoff run. I'm still worried about our 3rd down and long defense. We're also not generating a lot of turnovers, but that's not huge if our offense is clicking and not giving the ball up.

I (like others here) would also like to see what's up with Browner and Sherman to make any judgements. It now looks like we'll have at least one of them, so I'm going to need to see how Thurmond steps up before we can see how things are going. If losing Browner costs us, it could cost us the playoffs. There are 3 or 4 teams that are 6-6 and right behind us. Washington and TB have been on a tear lately, although TB has a tough schedule coming up.

Schedule-wise we're looking good. We need to take care of business at home, and we're virtually assured of making the playoffs after the Chi win. If we beat SF, and win in BUF and win out, we could be looking at the 2nd seed. THEN we're looking at a deep run.

The only other issue, and it's really ambiguous, is that most rookie QBs don't do well in the playoffs on their first run through. I think Wilson is the exception, but the game speeds up even more, and it's a tough adjustment. Historically, if you're a rookie, you're going to lose your first playoff game.

I am quite worried about our chances with both our CBs serving suspensions. The timing seems very convenient IMO. I don't care about the press but to me it is obvious the NFL hates Seattle.

Yeah the rookie thing might prove true. It definitely proved true the 1st game of Wilsons career, most rookie QB's lose their first start.

I think Wilson should do fine though. I think.

Interesting. Honestly, GB at Lambaeu is the only game that scares the hell out of me. I know they are banged up, but they have a true home field advantage with a team that is improving on a weekly basis. I've seen two playoff losses there recently, don't want to see a third. I would prefer traveling to Chicago again as opposed to Lambeau.

Give me the division title, let SF beat GB, then we have the Niners at home. My dream matchup!

My dream match-up is beating the Packers at Lambeau on a Hail Mary to Tate as time expires.

What is another great stat is our variance from week to week is second best in the league - meaning we play at a high level every week. It may be hard to see considering we have played the best rushing and passing teams in the league but I really think we haven't had many missteps outside of Miami all year - and even in that game it was one quarter of poor play.
