The point is that the expansion with Jags and Panthers was set-up for them to succeed almost immediately. They did not have to spend 40% of the salary cap within the expansion draft alone. 40% can set a team back, see Boselli, Gary Walker etc. Their dead money didn't even come off the books until just a couple of years ago. Coaching and the FO certainly didn't help matters in the first 5 years - but to just point to those things is shortsighted.
