A Great Start to the NFL Playoffs

That is of course unless you picked the Saints to cover the spread, or had the returning champs excelling to a win or two in your playoff pool. 

Right about now I think it's safe to say Marshawn Lynch would rather be a Seattle Seahawk than a Buffalo Bill.  Lynch deserves credit for capping the win off, sealing the deal, and breaking off perhaps one of the greatest playoff runs of all time, yes.  But more impressive was seasoned veteran Matt Hasselbeck's performance.  Hasselbeck threw for 272 yards, 4 touchdowns, and 1 interception, only picked off because it was deflected by the receiver's hands. 

I'm glad the underdog 'Hawks won since I really didn't care about the game, and had nothing riding on it.  Hell, why don't they just go the distance?  I hope they can get it done for Matt Hasselbeck, he's had a great career, almost all of it coming in a Seattle Seahawks uniform.  However, the road to the gold goes through Chicago, a stiff task for a Seahawk team with momentum, but also running out of luck.  We can only hope the remaining playoff games are as entertaining as this one has been.
