Wanna know how important Sunday's game is? Well, do you know what the Seahawks 1984, 1986, 1987, 1999, 2003 and 2005 seasons all have in common?
In all those seasons the Seahawks got off to a 5-2 start, and in every one of those campaigns but 1986, Seattle made the playoffs (although the '86ers won 10 games and surely won Super Bowl XXI in a tangent universe).
Yes, Sunday is just a single, non-conference game, and a loss wouldn't be a season-killer... but it's hard to overstate how much a win in Oakland would boost Seattle's post-season hopes.
In other news- Anyone hitting Halloween parties with Seahawks-related costumes? Or have any ideas for something like that? Spill it in the comments, yo.
