We know it. The players know it. Even the pedomorhic broadcasters at NFL Network know it.
The Seattle Seahawks have a lot riding on this game. Not in standings or seeding, that means nothing now. There is nothing to be gained or lost. Literally, the Seahawks could activate the Seagals for today's contest without effect.
This is all about confidence. The Seahawks, as individuals, have talked about how good they are. Their actions belied their claim. It's true, there is an abundance of talent on this squad, but they so far are only as good as their record says they are.
Sure, they've had a lot of good reasons, with the injuries to key offensive players. But that's over. The cavalry has returned. It's time to make it happen.
This team knows it needs to have a good win under it's belt, which is why Holmgren is NOT resting any starters today. THEY MUST PROVE THEY ARE AS GOOD AS THEY THINK THEY ARE. They need to give themselves reason to believe that they belong in the playoffs, and that they can, and will, experience success.
The only way they can to that is to friggin' OBLITERATE the Bucs today. I look forward to it.
