Commentary: Seahawks not even close to accomplishing goals

Normally, the bye week is a necessary stress reliever for football fanatics. It’s an absolute must because this game of overreaction wrenches every emotion imaginable. You always want more, but when the break arrives, you realize it’s good for your health.

The 2013 Seahawks are different, however. This is the bye, but there is no break, not in terms of interest. They’re 10-1, the first team in the NFL to reach double-digit victories. They’re not without their flaws, but they’re an overpowering team with a clear opportunity to win a championship. Though many anticipated this scenario when the season ended last January, the Seahawks have managed to be even better than those visions in a lot of ways. Or maybe they’ve just met expectations so well that reality seems like a fantasy.
