Seattle Seahawks 81% of Winning

Brian Burke calculates Seattle to be heavy favorites at home against the Detroit Lions. Seattle hosts the younger bust brother, Field Gulls favorite Matthew Stafford. Stafford turned 21 about three months before the draft. Using PFR's research on quarterback peak, that projects Stafford at 12.4% of capacity -- far away the lowest projection of any listed age. Stafford has played poorly this season and that shouldn't end in Qwest. He will be facing an attacking defense, a roaring crowd and in all likelihood, an early deficit. There's no gimmes in the NFL, but hosting a struggling 21 year old quarterback at home is pretty close. These are the games to get amped for, because even the pessimists are likely to overestimate the Seahawks after Sunday's coming beatdown.
