Seahawks wide receiver Harold McVays said the team is on pace to finish its best season since its inaugural season in 1958.
“We’re on pace right now to be one of the best teams in the history of the NFL,” McVAY said Wednesday.
“The players have been great.
It’s been a long time coming.
And you can’t do it all by yourself.”
The Seahawks have won seven of their past eight games, including an overtime victory over the New England Patriots last Sunday.
McVAY’s comments came just hours after he said that the team’s offense is on the verge of “the best offense in the NFL.”
The 49ers are tied for third in the NFC with 29 touchdown passes, and the Rams and Patriots are tied at third with 27 points each.
McSVAY, who is expected to take over as head coach in the wake of Tom Coughlin’s dismissal, said the offense has “changed” under his guidance.
“That’s what we’re trying to build,” McSVay said.
“We’re not just going to say, ‘Oh, we’re going to throw the ball every snap.’
It’s going to take a lot of work to be able to do that.
McVays comments come after he announced he was leaving Seattle as head of the 49ers.
McMahon, who will become a free agent on March 13, was a longtime confidant of Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, who signed him to a five-year, $52 million deal with Seattle in 2011.
McPhee and McVaya were friends during his tenure with the 49er organization, including the 2011 Super Bowl victory in the Rose Bowl.
McConnell and McMahon are close, with McConnell serving as the 49s defensive coordinator and McPhee as his quarterback.
McCahon and McKenzie have been friends since McConnell was drafted in the fifth round by Seattle in 2010.
McKenzie played for McVya in college at Southern Utah, where he helped guide the Cougars to the NCAA title game in 2012 and was the offensive coordinator at BYU in 2013.
McHooley and McShane were teammates at Alabama in 2011 and 2012.
McMcHOOLEY, 34, has two years remaining on his contract with the Seahawks.
McShane, 35, will earn $8 million in the first year of his $6.75 million deal, which includes $2.5 million in dead money and $750,000 in guaranteed money.
McSHANE has never won a Super Bowl.
He has had four NFL seasons with Seattle, winning two.
He signed a five-, seven- and 10-year contract extension in 2014.
McSHAE, 34 and McSHAEON, 35 have played in six Super Bowls with the Saints, Seahawks, Falcons and Patriots.
McREE, 30, is coming off a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee that he suffered in the preseason.
McROWAN, 32, is expected back in the lineup Sunday.
