SEATTLE — The 2013 Seahawks, with an 8-1 record for the first time in franchise history, are testing the versatility of victory. They’ve won ugly, won crazy and won wildly. They’ve won in lightning, won coming from behind and won without pass protection. They’ve won playing their A, B, C, D and F games.
Now, after needing their largest rally ever just to beat a winless team, the Seahawks should save the talk about perseverance and resilience for a day when they truly do something special. Right now, they’re merely surviving when they should be thriving. And while it’s foolish and unhealthy to overreact to the struggles of an 8-1 team, let’s be honest and give the proper response to the latest averted disaster at CenturyLink Field on Sunday.
