The Seattle Seahawks are the hottest team in the NFL, but to many outside of the northwest, they still haven't convinced the nation they are a top level team. Quarterback Russell Wilson stated: "I like to have something on my plate for all the people who have doubted me all these times," at his weekly news conference via Steve Kelley of the Seattle Times. "It's a lack of respect, a lack of accolades, a lack of acknowledgment, a lot of getting what you deserve for a lot of us," cornerback Richard Sherman said. "It's a bunch of people slighting you. For me, I think there's a bias against Stanford players. That bias is part of the chip." "Every single player has something to prove, and they want to prove it every game," Sherman said. "Every play they make is them proving somebody wrong. All of us doing it, that's how the chip manifests itself on Sundays." "That doesn't change anything," said Sherman. "You've still got a bunch of guys in this room who are still pissed off from whatever it is that they're pissed off about." The Seahawks get the first chance to show the doubters they are for real today against Washington Redskins, and Receiver Doug Baldwin says the Seahawks are carrying a grudge: "It's not a facade. That chip is a real thing," Baldwin said. "The doubters, the people who question your ability, who don't believe in you, all of that stuff is legitimate."
