Yeah, if that was what you meant ... I get it.
The point is the NFL has the most parity of any league around. Everybody knows that. The point is, that you just never know. Schaub may not even be here next year, and simply replacing him is the "spark" I spoke of. Its not like we draft terrible or anything. The whole discussion is flawed because there is only 1 team each year, and its damn difficult to make it to that game, let alone win it. The Chiefs came out of nowhere and there typically is a team that does this just about every year. Everyone thought the Colts "window" would have been closed for quite sometime. You just never know how things are going to play out from year to year.
The OP listed a few players age as his point. So what? AJ. We drafted Hopkins. Reed. We drafted Swearinger. Daniel Manning? Owen Daniels? Really? Foster has a few more years left. AJ has a few more good years left. We have young players sprinkled around. We will have the backbone Watt and Cush all locked up. We know how to put together a roster, and will continue to do so as long as they are allowed to.
