Our John McGrath has a question: "Is this the year God sides with Seattle sports teams?" From McGrath:
So how does any of this involve God? According to a 2013 survey conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute, 27 percent of U.S. adults believe “God plays a role in determining which team wins a sporting event.” Furthermore, a majority of U.S. adults — 53 percent — believe that athletes who have faith in God are rewarded with good health and success.
I don’t think God cares which teams win, or that athletes with faith in God are more apt to avoid injuries and participate in victory parades than those who don’t keep the faith. But that’s just a hunch, and I’m willing to consider an intriguing possibility:

> A late link add here: Richard Sherman on the five smartest quarterbacks in the NFL.
> NFL Films, Russell Wilson and Phish (when asked, Wilson said he didn't have much to do with or know much about all this, beyond the chant):
> Seahawks.com says the Seahawks will be waiting and watching this weekend.
> The Everett Herald writes that Earl Thomas deserves to be the NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
