Good post, the only thing I would comment on is the age of both teams. Seattle is right on track to when your franchise finally started taking off but you also didn't have much to show for your first 35 years or so. Harbaugh definitely could surpass what we have accomplished in his time here but so far he has to catch up to Pete Carroll. He has one less year with you guys than Pete does in Seattle so if he can win a super bowl next year that would put him in the lead but right now he is not and Pete isn't showing any signs of slowing down just yet either so it won't be an easy task to over take him.
It all depends on what the parameters are for you in defining success.
Harbs has 3 consecutive NFC championship game appearances and has yet to miss the playoffs at any point during his time here.
Harbs took over a team that was 6-10 and made them 13-3 with an NFC champ game appearance.
Carroll on the other hand took 2 seasons to get a winning record, and missed the playoffs in 2011.
Yes, he won a super-bowl, but I'm not ready to give him all the credit yet. He cost you the game in Atlanta (which was hilarious) and not to mention he didn't want to draft Russell Wilson. In fact, I remember reading somewhere that he had to be convinced? Not ready to give credit all the credit to Pete, I think John Schneider deserves more credit than Carroll lol.
I think if you look at what Harbs has contributed to his team, as opposed to what Carroll has... Harbs is the better coach.
Trust me, it will all make sense when we win the SB this year.

Couldn't you say the same thing about the 49ers? Or any team for that matter. Well except the good thing they got theirs.
I know it's fun to imagine the Seahawks coming crashing down to earth in a big ball of flames but if you are being honest and were not a fan of either team would you still think that or would you think the 49ers are headed for a potential collapse? Consider where each team is at currently and how the off season has gone for both. One just one the super bowl and resigned it's key players and have been quiet in the off season otherwise while the other has had rumors of frustration in the FO with the head coach and rumors of that coach leaving town while players have been getting arrested on multiple occasions and face potentially significant loss of playing time as well as even jail time.
Not trying to be rude but honestly if you look at the big picture I think there is much more validity to seeing problems with your team more so than mine. I think the only way to see it the other way is wishful thinking.
Won*, not one
I think if anything its proven that teams need to upgrade themselves to win a consecutive SB. What new talent have you brought in? If anything I feel you have lost more players. Trust me, as I type this there is an offensive coordinator out there who is currently studying what T.Y. Hilton, and Stevie Johnson (now a niner) did to have success against the Legion of Boom. I am willing to bet that unless there is some new scheme Carroll is drawing out (which I doubt seeing his time at USC) Seattle is going to be in for a rude awakening.
Lol, TMZ is not a sports rumors channel you should read. There is no tension in our FO c'mon man. Rumors of Harbs leaving? I'm starting to think you might be a troll.
After reading that last sentence it is getting very hard to take you seriously, we've upgraded our secondary, running game, and offensive line.
You've lost lineman, WR, defensive players, and not to mention you have lost more FO reps than we have.
I think this offseason should speak volumes to you about which team is reloading better...
