Seattle has had 1 double digit win season and 1 playoff appearance. They are playing very well and getting a ton out of a 3rd round rookie QB. If that rookie QB no longer delivers they are back at .500 with us.
Their list isn't much difference from the one Dallas has. Where there would be a difference is if you list our IL compared to theirs.
Again, it is goofy to use a team with 1 playoff appearance and 1 winning season in half a decade as a model for team building. Most organizations can field a winner after 4 years of losing.
Aaron Curry in 2009 is not on the team and maybe not in the league that was a whiff by another GM and coach, sound familiar
2010 was Okung at 6 I believe and he has been hurt most of the time
2011 was Carpenter late and he has been injured also.
2012 Bruce Irvin. contributor pass rushing but doesn't start
My point is despite what you and others are saying Seattle didn't build by drafting in the top ten for 5 years and acquire obvious elite talent. They were built in Free agency and solid drafting in the middle rounds.
