Seahawks give it!

On Saturday the Seattle Seahawks pulled off the upset of the year beating the defending champion New Orleans Saints 41-36. In the wake of the upset I hope I hope the NFL doesn’t mess with their playoff rules, preventing under .500 teams from qualifying. True, the seedings are now skewed, but this is what makes sports worth watching — the unpredictable and the wacky. This is the first time in over 80 years that a sub-.500 team has made the playoffs and I wouldn’t expect it to happen with any regularity.
The Seahawks actually beat the Bears in week 6 of the regular season. I’ll be rooting for them to knock off an inconsistent, yet consistently boring Bears team , thus putting the fear of God into the NFL (and myself) of a Patriots-Seahawks Superbowl. How about Jets-Seahawks? We can dream, can’t we?
