If Seattle beats New England, are they playoff contenders?
Thoughts? They've beat some decent teams (Green Bay, Dallas). Even despite crappy officiating (on both sides) they laid a whooping on Green Bay but have also laid eggs against teams that weren't supposed to be great (St. Louis, Arizona). If Seattle beats New England and goes 4-2 despite how well Russell plays is Seattle for real?
i.e, if Wilson puts up a 150 yard game, Lynch goes for 80, but Seattle limits the Pats to less than 250 yards of offense and wins a 13-10 type of game... is Seattle the next closet thing to the 2001 Ravens?
Anything is possible but honestly with them having a rookie QB, I honestly think they will go as far as their defense will take them. (Also they should've lost the game against Green Bay -_-)
We’ll also throw out his dismal NBA Finals run last season, in which he failed to score in double figures in three of his team’s five games. Overall, he is a player who has improved across the board in each of his three seasons, and averaged 16.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game last year for the Thunder. He also shot 49 percent from the field, 39 percent from three and 85 percent from the foul line – all career bests. Those aren’t exactly Kobe Bryant or even Joe Johnson numbers, but they are solid, and they earned him the league’s Sixth Man of the Year award. Still, a max contract is not due a player with Harden’s stat line.
