"Life goes by pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
-Ferris Bueller, surely urging us to sit back and enjoy this bye week.
Jipes. The Niners and Cards both just took SEVERE beatings back east (don't let AZ's comeback attempt to dignify the final score fool you... they got pwned).
After a traumatically awful 0-2 start, the Seahawks are only a half-game out of first place in the admittedly pathetic NFC West. With SF playing the Patriots and AZ tangling with Buffalo next week, a win at the Meadowlands could quite possibly put Seattle back atop the division.
No matter what the national media says, we don't need to make any apologies for winning a crappy division. How many times did the Niners do that back in the '80s? We need to copy something else those old Niners did a few times: Win playoff games on the road.
Living out here in the NFC West gives the Hawks the opportunity to get healthy and then start rolling towards Championship-calibre January football. For now, just thank the maker that, like Anthony Michael Hall in Sixteen Candles, we're "King of the Dipshits."
