1980 Oakland Raiders. 1997 Denver Broncos. 2000 Baltimore Ravens. 2005 Pittsburgh Steelers. 2007 New York Giants.

What do all these teams have in common? They all won the Super Bowl after entering the playoffs as wild card teams.

It happens. Wild card teams win Super Bowls.

This Packer fan hopes the next addition to that list will be: 2010 Green Bay Packers.

Hey, it happens.

Hey, I wouldn't be surprised.

Signed "happy to have a new coach and this crazy year behind us."

Mark Belling said it could happen. That, above all else, gives me hope. Is there something wrong with that?

Hey, it also happens that teams like ours set new records for being the first team with a losing record (7-9) to win their division. Now there's something to be proud of, huh? *cough*
I and my kids will be wearing our Seattle Seahawks shirts tomorrow for their first playoff game. We'll be crossing our fingers and yelling our hearts out. (Although secretly I have major doubts they can beat the Saints. But I won't tell my sons this.)
Here's to a hopeless cause - Go Seahawks!!!
