It always closes for every single team but 1 each year. Then reopens to everyone the very next. This is the NFL, so fluid and the idea of this is worthless imo. The right spark can change everything for anyone and fast.

The more I watch the colts the more I think our window is closing. Look how they handled the same Seattle team we lost too last week. It's very depressing.

Maybe, if what you meant to say was that between 8 and 12 teams have a legitimate chance at getting to the SB each year, we happen to have been in that discussion the last two years, and we are wasting the opportunity because we keep starting a horrible QB. 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.

Been waiting for a Super Bowl since around the age of 12. Now that I'm 50, I am less worried about this group of players' window than I am about the window that is my lifetime.

Apply a tiny bit of pressure and the guy becomes a catastrophic mistake waiting to happen.
Kubiak is aggressive and conservative at the wrong times.
But, overall I believe the biggest obstacle is Schaub.
Sign me up for this.I've been saying this also. I also thought they should've drafted wilson or foles in the 3rd last year or geno in the 1st this year. Now we don't even have a qb for the future its lucks division for 10 yrs.

There is no window.

It is simply a painting on a wall of a window. Think Wylie Coyote "ACME" painted tunnel.

Not to me. It's confirmation that teams that are willing to make tough decisions like to change coaches have a chance to turn themselves around.

If the Texans remain in a rut, as they have for the last 7 years, then they deserve it. Their fate lies within their own decision making.

I voted "no" on whether the Super Bowl window is closing for this team. It was never open with this regime.

Let's see.

Their QB threw 2 TDs. Our QB threw 2 TDs

Their QB lost a fumble, Our QB threw 2 INTs (one returned for 6)

They scored a rushing touchdown, we didn't score a rushing touchdown

Their back up running back doesn't fumble the ball, our back up running back fumbled the ball

They scored a special teams TD, We did not score a special teams touchdown

They sacked Russell Wilson twice, We sacked Russell Wilson 5 times

They did not allow a scoring drive over 90 yards. We allowed a scoring drive over90 yards (TD).




Yeah, Andrew Lucks got this division sewed up.

I vote no. IMO we will have a powerful Defense for yrs to come with a few changes to our offense we can be right back into the race.

But of your age concerns and my Couch GM abilities

Andre - I believe we have a great core of WR to overcome his aging (whenever he starts to show)
Owen - Graham is showing to be a player and I'm interested in Ryans Griffin starting these nest few games to see if he has starting ability
Schaub - Draft replacement this yr and hopefully hit... with our offense, its easy on QBs we just need one who has more options to really open it up
Manning - looking to be a weaker part of the D
Reed - hasn't done anything to prove his worth


Schaub and Bullock are the biggest concerns and momentum killers on the team...
