Just a little something to get you excited about Marshawn Lynch’s return for the playoffs. It’s a simulcast of the Beast Quake vs. the Saints in January 2011 and the Desert Storm vs. the Cardinals last season:
As stunning as it still is to consider, this is the best all-around team in the history of the Seattle Seahawks. That’s odd to say about a 10-win team — and it would be odder yet if this team had not made the playoffs.
Thirty years ago, it wouldn’t have. Thirty years ago, in fact, a red-hot 10-6 Seahawks team did not make the postseason.
These Seahawks, who have won six of seven and have averaged 32 points over the past eight games, are the team no one wants to play in the playoffs (even if Arizona GM Steve Keim says he does).
