I'm baffled - I'm relatively new here, and joined because it was a source of information in the barren wastelands of sports enthusiasm that is South Florida. I grew up in NH, rooting for underdog teams, and was here by the time the 'real' success started, but I honestly can't wrap my head around all the negativity surrounding what is probably #1, 2, or 3 on the list of all time most successful franchises (and imo, THE most given that we've had free agency and salary caps to deal with where others did not). How on earth can so many people think the most successful front office in maybe FOREVER is foolish and they as part time fans/students of the game (ha!) have all the answers? Sorry to rant, but I just can't comprehend this and it seems to be out in spades. I can at least appreciate some of the angst after the Superbowl - it was a disappointment, so it's natural to feel a bit let down and to question everything in your sadness, anger, and surprise. But this was the draft - the area where we have done great year after year, and found production year after year even in our later picks. We all have some occasional differing opinions, sure, and we all have our "binky" picks (thanks for introducing me to that term btw, I do love it), but again, where does all the arrogance come from that "we" know more than what HAS to be either 1, 2, or at worst 3 on the list of all time great front offices in the history of this league (and likely all sports, ever)? I wonder how all these people didn't honestly jump off bridges during the Pete Carroll years (I'm guessing most weren't AROUND during this time but still...) for all the venom I see regarding a franchise that has only missed the playoffs 1 time since 2001...and has won 3 superbowls, been to 4, and narrowly missed an additional after being up big in the afccg. Am I missing something? Do we secretly suck and I just don't see it? Have we secretly sucked for years and I missed the notice? Someone help me understand here.
