Seattle and San Francisco look set for long term success as they improve their offences.
Monday saw Seattle trade picks with Minnesota for wide receiver Percy Harvin, and San Francisco steal Anquan Boldin for a seventh round pick from the Baltimore Ravens.
The moves showed that the Seahawks and 49ers are planning for the long-haul.
The duo have several similarities: both already boast two of the meanest defences in the league; both reached the playoffs and both have young, exciting Quarterbacks.
Both have now decided to add big time play-makers at wide receiver to make them even more deadly. The term ‘Dynasty’ is used in the NFL for teams who win three Super Bowls in five years or less.
Both these teams look set to join a club that involves the ’01 Patriots, ’75 Steelers ’93 Cowboys and ’81 49ers.
The 49ers and Seahawks both have superb head coaches in Jim Harbaugh and Pete Carroll respectively, and both will be assembling a team that is poised to make repeated runs at lifting the Vince Lombardi trophy.
Other teams in the NFC are going to need to take note of these trades and act accordingly. New Orleans, Green Bay and Atlanta are all poised to make a Super Bowl run themselves. But looking at what these two teams have just done, they may need to think again.
