Not saying these are better. Just saying these are some of the good 3-4+ years of drafting.
What's nice about this list while comparing it to the Texans, the three teams listed ended up winning multiple super bowls.

I know the optimism is really low around here, but I feel confident we will win two or three super bowls.

Just think. The optimism going into 2011 was somewhat low. We exceeded those expectations. Going into 2012, we had high hopes. We ended up getting disappointed. I bet we all get surprised next year.
