win over the Eagles by the Seahawks had a familiar feel to it.
Now at 5-7, Seattle had no real shot at the playoffs but in a sense this is one of those wins that shows a turning point for a franchise. If you would have told me after week 3 of the NFL season that the Seahawks would win five games, I would have called you crazy.
But they've improved. Why? Because they're one of the youngest teams in the NFL and they're slowly getting better. They may not be world-beaters this season but something is brewing in the Pacific Northwest. I think last night's win showed all you Seahawk fans out there that the team is moving in the right direction.
The Eagles? Oh god, Mike Sherman will be coaching them next season.
The thing that sticks out the most about terrible teams is a lack of identity. What is Philly's idenity? Vince Young throwing interceptions. Seattle? Marshawn Lynch being an absolute stud. T-Jack not being an awful quarterback behind a good offensive line. The defense doing it's job.
There are pieces here folks. Over the course of the season, Seattle has put them together.
And that makes the win for you Seahawks fans all the sweeter. (Now if you will excuse me, the Titans have a playoff berth to clinch)
