I think everyone who saw the game has to respect the Seahawks as a team and an organization. I was most surprised by their defense, which I didn't think would stand a chance against our running game. I can't say I think they would have made the superbowl if they were in the AFC, but I'll look at them differently from now on. Congrats on a great season!
