This is not a Super Bowl team.

Teams that go to the Super Bowl don't do this. The really good teams, like the Patriots, the Eagles and the Colts, get a team down and kill them. The Seahawks had that chance, up by 17 with 5 minutes to play.

But they didn't. The defense slackened, the offense tightened, and once the Rams got within a field goal, it was never in doubt. The Seahawks might still win the NFC West and go to the playoffs. Hell, they might give New England a game next week. But they aren't a Super Bowl team.

Far from it.

Hey, we'll take the Seahawks over the Yucs any day here in Tampa Bay. At 1-4, this team ain't going to even sniff the playoffs this year, and the cap situation means it'll take another season before a winning record is even a possibility.

Obviously you aren't a follower of the Simmons Five Year Rule, which states that no follower of a team that wins a championship can complain about said team for five years after that championship.
