(PHOTOS) Seahawks Go Undefeated At Home; Will Face Robert Griffin III, Washington Redskins In Playoffs - Renton, WA Patch: "Seattle's 20-13 victory over St. Louis on Sunday didn't mean much in the standings.
The Seahawks were assured a wildcard playoff berth, and barring a walk-on-water upset by Arizona over San Francisco, the NFC West division title was out of reach. (For one half, a Cardinals miracle was in the works until they started playing like, well, the Cardinals)
Coach Pete Carroll could have tempered his approach to Sunday's finale at CenturyLink Field, not wanting to risk injury to any of his stars heading into the postseason.
Wasn't this team supposed to be an afterthought in the NFC West anyway?
Somebody forgot to slip that memo to Win-Forever Pete, the same coach who picked a rookie quarterback to start over a heralded free agent."
