Im still convinced 2015 will be our super bowl year. Take next year to improve and the 2nd year with new coaches and players we make our run.
It's not a philosophy. It's a reality. It doesn't matter if we ascribe to it or not, it just is.

I will be more than happy for our team to hit the jackpot and win the lottery and get all the right pieces in place after one season. And, yes, some teams do flip and win some games.

Chiefs: How many times have they rebuilt before they got it "right" with Reid this year? And... will this be sustainable success on their part?

Dolphins: Yeah. I remember them. They were the poster-child of the quick turnaround model we were supposed to follow... when SPARANO turned them around from a 1-15 team to an 11-5 team. How long did that last? One year? And then three years of below 500 ball before Philbin appears to have MAYBE turned it around? Maybe.

Detroit? Are they turned around? They may not even make the playoffs and how many different coaching staffs have they been through? How many random groupings of crap did they have to go through before hitting the jackpot?

The Eagles? OK. Maybe. But they could still lose their division to the COWBOYS. And if they don't win their division, they're not going to get in as a wildcard.

Arizona could be a good example of doing it right but the results aren't in, yet.

The teams you should be pointing at are the Niners, the Seahawks, the Saints, and the Patriots.
