Nobody is giving Seattle any chance of winning this Saturday's wild-card matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and the New Orleans Saints. And from a casual fans perspective, it's not hard to see why.
The Hawks have become the laughingstock of the NFL. The punchline of every Football-related joke. Even the die-hard fans of Seattle must admit that it's a crime that they made the playoffs. 7-9, and they don't just make the playoffs, but they become the number 4 seed with a division title.
Here's something you can chew on, statistically the Saints are the underdog heading into this matchup, since they technically have the lower seed and is a wild card. STATISTICALLY, it would be an upset if the Saints won this one, go figure.
But once all is said and done, if your in, your in. Lawyer Milloy made a good point before the win and your in game against the rams. It doesn't matter how you get into the playoffs. Just get in there. The Seahawks took that advice to heart.
Technically the playoffs have already started for the Seahawks. Last week you could say was the beginning of the postseason since it was a "win and you live to play another game" scenario against the Rams. The Seahawks have completed step 1.
They are 1/5 of the way there to a super bowl championships. Sure there may not be very good odds that they'll win but that doesn't mean they can't pull a few rabbits out of the hat to give them a fighting chance. Here are some of the things working there way.
