Whoever wasn’t on the Seahawks bandwagon, you can jump on board now. They just proved they can hang with anyone, and I honestly believe they are Super Bowl contenders. Image credit: Stephen Brashear/AP Photo via SeattlePI.com Before you dismiss me as a homer, think back on Seattle’s season. They beat the Pats, Green Bay, Chicago, and now the 49ers. The class of the league have been shown up by rookie sensation Russell Wilson, beast Marshawn Lynch, and that brutal defense. What do we want in our Super Bowl favorites? A great QB. Check. A solid run game to control the clock and hold a lead. Check. A vicious defense that forces turnovers and holds their ground. Check. With all that said, why can’t the Seahawks be a contender? I think they have just as good of a shot as anyone. Can we honestly say there’s a clear favorite to win it all? We see flaws in all of the top teams, so why not root for a little West Coast magic? I know I’ll be pulling for the Seahawks come playoff time. Consider this my invitation to you all to join Seahawks nation.
