After seeing the debacle this year that is the Texans, I've begun wondering what do the solid franchises have in common? Teams like the Steelers, Ravens, Patriots, Colts, Packers, Giants, and 49ers have done pretty well over an extended period of time. You might have an argument about the inclusion of some of the teams, or lack thereof, and that's fine. Is it solid ownership, coaching, an ability to consistently evaluate talent, an ability to adapt to the changing environment, or simply luck, or a combination of all? I believe all organizations want to be the very best in all these areas, but most fall short. So again, what do the good organizations do that so many are not able to?
