Who thinks that after this season, we could be seeing the start of a Seahawks Dynasty? Or is it too early to tell?
I mean if you think about it, we're past the "rebuilding" stage now. I think this season officially brought the 'rebuilding phase' (aka an excuse for going 7-9). So, this could be the start of something like the Steelers, Patriots or 49ers dynasty. Like clockwork, pretty much every decade the NFL has a dynasty. Or a very strong franchise that's close to what most would call a "dynasty"..
Most of my buddies tell me that a true dynasty doesn't start until your first Superbowl victory. Then you need to win another in the next two or three seasons, and keep winning after that. When its all said and done, a real football dynasty is a team that has a couple standards:
1. Usually the team has the same QB throughout winning their Superbowls (Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, Joe Montana, etc.).. 2. The roster should not dramatically change each season. Meaning, most of your franchise players for each position will be there to contribute in the dynasty.. 3. Most important, in order to be called a true dynasty. A team needs 3+ Superbowl victories in a relatively short timeline; i.e. The San Francisco 49ers had four Superbowl victories in the 1980's decade.
With all that in mind. I know its a bit early to say much, but I am just so tempted. Especially now that we have a franchise QB, a solid defense and a promising offense that can easily be built into something special over the off-season. Also, with the Seahawks being a young team. It looks like a lot of the players we have now will be around for awhile.
So... Your opinion? If you don't think this is the start of a Seahawks dynasty. Then what do you think is needed to win a Superbowl next season and 'officially' start a dynasty? What pieces are missing?
