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?
Give him another year. He's played three or four positions in the last four years. Landon Collins was bad his first year, some called him a bust.
I agree, he was a stretch at that draft position but hindsight....
It would take 3 SB appearances and at least 2 more wins before we were considered anything remotely respectable to the analysts and media.
which I can't say shouldn't be that way. This is the era that the colts will have those multiple SB wins. It is time we join the dynasty's in the NFL. Irsay knows this and I'm sure Ballard does too.
Andrew won't be here forever.
