Tuesday links: Seahawks look for lessons in loss

As I’ve written here a few times, since the NFL expanded its season to 16 games in 1978, only one team has gone undefeated, and only six others have done as well as 15-1.

So yeah, the odds were really against the Seahawks going 15-1 this year, even if it was right there in their reach.

Now the task is to not let a loss linger.

And that was the theme of Pete Carroll’s press conference Monday, to learn from the lessons of the defeat, which I recapped in this story here. The rest of the season will tell whether this is a defeat that is merely a blip on the radar, or something more.
