it's easy to sit there and slap the packers and seahawks on the back and talk about what well oiled machines those orgs are now. that's because you're looking at the final product and aren't paying any attention to the legwork that it took to get there.
that's because you aren't a fan of those franchises and you didn't have to sit through, say, the four straight losing seasons seattle had prior to 2012. or the two straight non-winning seasons at the beginning of ted thompson's tenure. or the relatively long stretch of mediocrity in baltimore when ozzie newsome was moved up to GM and the ravens didn't win a playoff game for six years and had three losing seasons in that stretch.
