Can someone please tell me why everyone is thinking that the seahawks are now superbowl contenders cuz they beat the packers? they didnt look all that impressive!
I think it has to do with the fact that their two star players are now back from injury. They didn't look good last night but Hasselbeck is expected to be a little rusty. Alexander did rush for 200 yards and the weather conditions had a lot to do with sloppy play. They are also the defending NFC champs and its an old cliche but they're still the champs until someone knocks them off.
I think any of that speculation centers mostly around the Seahawks getting Alexander and Hasslebeck back. As defending NFC champs, expectations that Seattle can now make a strong push doesn't seem far-fetched or unexpected, IMO.
Edit -- heh, what Thibodaux said.
come on, they are healthy now. They have two pro-bowl calibur recievers in d-jax and branch. They also have one of the top running backs in the league. They are going to get consideration from all the media when they are fully healthy.
Sean had 40 freakin carries.... thats why he had 200yrds.... give Duece the ball 35 times and he has 250yds... I promise
