But knowing how every football year is different, I am surprised they are not taking that into consideration. This same Seattle team that is being predicted to win the SB was just like us 7-9 the season prior. They became contenders by adding pieces, we have also added pieces this offseason.
Listen, I know we have not done much but I watched us compete last year in every single game. Every single one and that is the only reason I know we are a good team!
I agree but you also have to consider how we've played out of the gates the last few years. Coaching mistakes, sloppy play, seemingly uninspired, poor game planning. All of that falls on the coaching, which unfortunately was the one thing we didn't upgrade during the offseason.
You could say that the Seahawks could play poorly bc of the 1 oclock time and being a west coast team but I'm sure they will be jacked up for the first game of the season. No real grind yet from tons of travel.
I get the predictions, but I also get the upset predictions as well. Think Schefter and several others have done so. I am just not as overwhelmingly confident as some of the guys are around here.
