Based on recent expansion teams Carolina, Jacksonville and Baltimore you guys are behind hte curve. All those teams have made a bigger splash than you guys. Especially the way they set up with the expansion draft and no.1 pick. Maybe if your coach didn't waste money on an injury prone left tackle and aging defender you would have done better.
Since when was Baltimore an expansion team? Might want to recheck your NFL knowledge my friend. The Cleveland Browns moved to Baltimore, and thus had the same team intact. Then in 1999 the 'New' Cleveland Browns were an expansion team.
As far as the competitive team arguement thats weak at best. The goal of any team is to be successful, and not simply competitive. Even the Texans can hold the 'competitive' team claim to fame. If you want to make a valid arguement you might want to first have the right information before spewing about something you're clueless about.
