False.

 

The Colts defense consistently ranked very well in numerous categories under Dungy.

 

Yards Allowed:  2002 (ranked 8th his first year), 2003 (11th), 2005 (11th), 2007 (3rd), 2008 (11th)

Points Allowed:  2002 (7th), 2005 (2nd), 2007 (1st), 2008 (7th)

Takeaways:  2003 (12th), 2004 (3rd), 2005 (7th), 2007 (2nd), 2008 (13th)

Passing Yards:  2002 (2nd), 2003 (5th), 2006 (2nd), 2007 (2nd), 2008 (6th)

Passing TDs:  2002 (9th), 2003 (9th), 2005 (6th), 2006 (5th), 2007 (2nd), 2008 (1st)

 

As you can see, the Colts defense made significant improvement in Dungys' first season as the HC, ranking in the top-10 in Yds, Pts, Pass Yds, and Pass TDs.

 

The Colts consistently had a top-10 pass defense in a passing league.

 

In 2007 alone, the Colts defense ranked top-10 in ten different statistical categories and top-5 in seven of those, AND had the Defensive Player of the Year in Bob Sanders.

 

During Dungys' tenure, the Colts defense ranked in the top-10 in a statistical category 38 times, and top-5 19 times.

 

That is the opposite of trash.  :hat:

The Colts won more games than any other franchise during Dungys' tenure, including the Pats.

 

If the number of Lombardis is the only number you care about, fine, but the Colts D wasn't trash under Dungy.

 

It was actually very good.

I respect your opinion, I just don't really agree with your logic.

 

Just because one team wins it all every other year doesn't mean they're the best at everything and the other 31 teams are all trash.  :hat:
