Same excuse could be made for every terrible GM in the entire history of all terrible GM's.

Building a team isn't some magical process where secret unknown things are happening for 5 years and then suddenly appearing out of nowhere is a competitive team.

No. It's not like that.

It's a work in progress than you can easily assess at every stage of the process.
You can look at it one year in and say "things are going pretty well." Or look at it 4 years in and say "this is a flat out disaster."
Here's a hint... if you're rebuilding a team, and after year 1 and 2 you don't have your first round ****ing picks, and then finish 2nd last and 9th ****ING last... well... we'll chalk that up as a "this is a flat out disaster".

I can understand the basic idea that some confused people may look at the current team and say "I think Burke's rebuild is going pretty well". At least they're assessing something tangible.

But I have absolutely no patience with people that say something as specious as "it's too early to tell".
