While you're IN the "rebuilding period" you don't KNOW you're gonna be great, so the "feeling" you're talking about really comes after the fact. While you're IN it, it just feels stressful.
When I saw Romo his first year I felt like we were building something great. We'd found our QB and he had "it". I thought the same way even after the playoff loss in Seattle.
