Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll and his team believe they can make the playoffs this season despite a 4-6 record so far.
Right now the Seahawks are three games behind both of the current NFC wild card co-leaders, which are the Bears and Lions.
Since the Seahawks were able to get into the playoffs with a 7-9 record in 2010, they believe they have a shot this season as well.
“To do it in the fashion that we did it, getting smacked up all year long,” Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch said. “Anybody else in that position I think would have been like, ‘You know what man, this ain’t for us.’ But we kept fighting and kept clawing.”
“There are a lot of games out there,” Carroll said. “There’s a lot of wins to be had if we can do it. If we stay on course with what we’re doing right now, we’ve got a formula that can get us close in every game we play.
“It doesn’t matter who we play. I don’t care what their record is or where they come from. It doesn’t matter right now. That’s a good feeling in here. How that works down the stretch, we’ll find out.”
The Seahawks may not be a great team, but they do play tough and make each game difficult for their opponent. But in order to really go deep into the playoffs, you need win in the regular season.
