I think Seattle is the second best team in the division, but have also overachieved and should have one more loss under their belt.
Seattle has a schedule where they could probably get to 9-7 and if they beat the Vikings they'll have tie breakers over Dallas, Green Bay and the Vikes so they may be in it at the end. The Niners clearly are in a differant league.
As for Seattle, they probably would have been wise to bring in a QB that had been in the league for awhile and would give them a chance to be a little more creative on offense. Too bad there weren't any of those guys around.
