The Seattle Seahawks aren’t going to win the NFC West this season. At 8-5, the best they can hope for is the Wild Card.

But if they make the playoffs, good luck to any team that faces them.

“I don’t want any part of that,” former NFL linebacker and current Rams analyst Kirk Morrison said on Reiter Than You. “They’re a team right now that has a wild card at quarterback in Russell Wilson that has put his team on his back. If you give him an opportunity and they’re down a score or ahead, he’s a guy that – he’s a magician back there. He pulls rabbits out of hats, whatever you want. He can do it all. He can escape the pocket, and he can throw deep down the field.”

The Seahawks started the season 0-2 and 4-5. At midseason, many assumed it was a lost season for Seattle.

Well, the Seahawks have since won four straight, beating the Packers, Panthers, 49ers and Vikings. Wilson has eight touchdowns and one interception during that stretch.

“They were a team that people thought was going to be a rebuild, but yet, Pete Carroll was able to do a reset,” Morrison said. “The way that they're playing right now – they’ve won four games in a row. They’re playing well. They’ve had the Rams on the ropes twice this season. I just think that they’re a good football team. If you see them in the first round the playoffs, that’s the team that scares me (in) the Wild Card.”

Morrison also wouldn’t want to face the Bears (9-4), who are coming off a 15-6 win over the Rams (11-2).

“They’re a defense no one wants to go up against,” Morrison said. “I think when Mitch Trubisky is at the helm, it’s a different offense. It’s a team that’s able to hurt you in many ways. But when that defense is playing like that, it’s a hard team to beat.”

The Bears host the Packers (5-7-1) this Sunday at Soldier Field, while the Seahawks play the 49ers (3-10) in Santa Clara. Kickoff is at 1 p.m. and 4:05 p.m. ET, respectively.
