With the way our injuries are, our first 5 games on paper with the exception of Seattle are all still winnable. Tolzein just sucks a big bag! Rams, Browns, and 49ers are winnable though without Luck. Cards maybe not? but that game is at home. If we can start 3-2 and get Luck and Kelly back fully healthy then 10-6 is very possible. We need to sweep the Jags and at least split with the Titans and Texans which is doable if Luck is healthy.
Watch Out for a Team on the Rise
When a window of opportunity closes, darkness soon follows.
That’s why the NFL is said to be cyclical. Most teams go through periods of winning and losing. Some teams, like Detroit, tend to have more darkness than others.
When looking for a dynasty, it tends to come from a team that just suffered a dark period.
This article is a little bit lengthy, but it is still an interesting read, especially right now during the slow part of the season. I kind of wanted to put this in the Colts section and talk about our chances, but there are also other teams that have potential for it now too (I'm thinking the Cowboys or Raiders). A lot has changed since this article was written. And a lot can still change.
"New England fared the best with three consecutive playoff appearances in 1996-98. But the team was 13-19 (.406) the next two seasons with no real expectations in 2001."
Remind you of anyone?
