Last weekend, many of you indulged in one of the greatest of modern winter traditions: the NFL playoffs.
You may have noticed that the Seattle Seahawks did not play, and in fact did not even qualify for the wild card round.
That should be frowned upon, and changes should be made. Not just because of where they didn't go, but for where they do want to go, and how they plan to get there.
Let's face the fact that many, but not all of you, have accepted that the Seahawks are in a rebuilding phase. They are not ready to seriously compete with the league's elite and potentially win a Super Bowl.
So how long must the average 'Hawks fan wait to see their beloved team playing for the title? Well, rebuilding a franchise typically takes 3-5 seasons. By the third year, you would hope to see some big dividends paying out to a patient fan base, however there are any number of struggling franchises out there that have been trying to find the right formula for a decade or even longer.
