wsnnwa:A lot of it comes from coaching and player development. Just look at the Patriots, their organization brings out the best from each of their players. Just look at how well most of their late draft picks play.
I think Stafford wasn't growing as much as he could when they had Calvin Johnson, their style of play was throw it in the general area of Johnson and let him take care of it.
He has never had a reliable offensive line, nor a defense that could hold a lead. I'm not trying to make excuses for him but I believe that as a team you're only as good as your weakest link.
Fair point(s), though I still have a hard time believing in a team that has him as a QB. Kinda like the Bears and Cutler, when he was their #1. (And, well, their team isn't the best either at the moment)
Oh and your point about the weakest link is spot on for any team out there.
solarized:Still can't believe how close we came to beating the Cowboys. I'm just going to accept this isn't our season and move on! if we beat the Jags this weekend then we MIGHT have a chance of the playoffs as AP is potentially back on the 18th. Very impressed with the Seahawks last night!!!
Good game by you guys, but just lacked that last bit of luck.
As for my own teams chances, I still believe that we can scrape a PO berth, though it's going to be very, very hard. (And will obviously demand the right results with losses to key teams etc.)
