The Seahawks blew it by playing decent football at times. They just had to finish 7-9. Oh, the Seahawks started out promising by going 2-6 in their first eight games, but then the wheels fell off and they finished the season by going 5-3. Three of their games they lost by three points or less.
Another contributing factor was that the Colts were lost without Peyton Manning until Week 15 when they got their first win. The Rams went 2-14, not getting a win until Week 8. In fact, the Seahawks finished with a better record than 10 other teams.
That does not bode well for drafting one of the most hyped QBs since Peyton Manning.
I was wrong again, but Seahawks fans have something to cheer about. Their team doesn't stink like most people think.
Finally, this death march of inept soothsaying is over. So, I will call my predictions at 1-6-1. I was really close on some and completely off on others, and yet it still makes me look like a buffoon.
Then again there is always next year.
