situation. They only have 2 NFC Championship Games and a Superbowl
to speak for it.
You're right, the situations are extremely similar.
Other than the fact that Haslett left a probowl running back, WR, tackle (& RG I think)... other than Peyton being allowed to get a pro-bowl corner back, other than Peyton not having to start half a dozen rookies out of necessity.......
They also made the decision to invest in FAs...... we did not. Like it or not, McNair seems to be good with that decision, which mean to build primarily through the draft, which will naturally take longer.
But other than that, same situation.
