It goes along way to explaining why he wants to bring in people that feel they have been dissed so they will play twice as hard to prove themselves. (sheman/browner/lynch/wilson etc) sheman?
I appreciate that Pete has his Win Forever philosphy and he wants to build a self sustaining system of excellence in Seattle but the question is once Pete accomplishes a Super Bowl win to go along with his NCAA championship, does he deceide he proved the media and others wrong and pulls the plug?
That is a complete grabbed-out-of-thin-air (or from between your cheeks) assumption, and then you use that assumption to conclude something that has a much better explanation.
Pete couldn't give two rat-craps about what people think of him, and he isn't the least bit interested in proving people wrong for being "dissed" by the league. If you read his book, you'll understand that being let go from those two teams, in those circumstances, were essential in his going through the process of discovering himself. And, by the way, Pete himself doesn't think they were wrong for letting him go -- why the hell would that be a motivating factor at all, let alone now?
