Let's not discuss the PED's issue. Let's talk about how Pete Carroll and John Schneider have revolutionized this team. No one in the country believed the Seahawks would take three years into the new era to play in the divisional game in the playoffs and lose to the Falcons by a FG.
Now, PC and JS do not abide by conventional wisdom. They go by their own wisdom. They build through the draft with unknown players(Actually the really only "known" status players that PC drafted were Russell Okung and Earl Thomas, maybe reaaallll iffy Russell Wilson).
This is just an imagination. I am in no way predicting that we will do this, but if we do win the Super Bowl, win the Conference Championship, win our division outright, or have the best record in the NFC, will we have successfully proven Green Bay's player philosophy(finding unkowns cheap instead of paying for high priced players)? Will we begin a revolution in the NFL that other teams will want to try at the very least(I'm sure some do, but not as much as the Seahawks do)? What will be the end result of Pete Carroll's legacy in the NFL at the end of his career? If so, the Seahawks may potentially have the most radical, game-changer in Pete Carroll.
I'm saying teams are bad at finding players, I'm just wondering if the rest of the NFL will really begin to realize that PC's method works. you get my drift. It's hard not to imagine Carroll's philosophy taking over the NFL and follow his ideas.
