First of all, sorry for my long absence since the disappointing end of the season. Usually when an Eagles season ends, I need to take a bit of a break from football and let some things digest so I don't jump to quick conclusions about what went right, what went wrong, and what really needs to be fixed. We'll be diving deep into that over the course of the offseason, but for now, since it's one of the biggest weeks in the sports world, I thought I would drop in to comment on the NFC's representative for the Super Bowl this year. Once again, the Seattle Seahawks will be representing the NFC and attempting to repeat as Super Bowl champions against the New England Patriots (Cough! Cheaters! Cough!). Back in December leading up to the Eagles big game against the Seahawks, which ended up having significant playoff implications, I highlighted the Seahawks highly effective use of the read-option. Needless to say, it's no secret that I have taken exception to the announcers, sportswriters and fans who have called the read-option a silly fad and compared it to things like the wildcat. Today, we'll take a quick look at how the Seattle Seahawks rode the read-option all the way to their second Super Bowl appearance in consecutive years.
