    If you didn't have a choice of a dynasy (a la New England, Dallas, San Fransisco, etc.), what team would you rather us be?

    1. Always a contender, but never in the Super Bowl (Like Manning's Colts)

    2. Many Super Bowl trips but never win one (E.G. Buffalo in the 90's)

    or

    3. One and Done...You get the one Super Bowl but don't even come close to it again for a long, long, looooong time (I'm talking 20+ years). Not even a playoff berth...

    Owie...those choices hurt, but um...

    I guess A)Always a contender, but never in the Super Bowl (Like the recent Broncos)

    It'll at least make the regular season better. I'd hate to be like Tampa was a little bit back.

    I'll take A. Why? Because we might catch that break one year and get to one.:yahoo:

    I don't get how 1 is possibly better than 2? Being in the Super Bowl every year obviously means you were a contender in the regular season AND did well enough in the playoffs to make the Super Bowl (2). Why would you choose just being a contender and not ever getting to the SB (1)?

    and the whole option 3. isn't going to ever mean anything to anyone unless you are pulling a Red Sox thing and people are spending their whole lived cheering for a team who can't put it together. not exactly the Texans situation.

    Yeah I'd agree with that....you get to the play offs and ANYTHING can happen....look at the Steelers last year. 3 play off wins on the road and noone thought they'd be able to do that.

    Understandable...

    But the options are that 1 means you never get to the Super Bowl, 2 means you never win but get a bunch of chances in a given time period (like the Bills did) and 3 get that one but never come close for a generation or two.

    I just want to have hope going into the season, hope in November/December and some hope in January. Obviously, every fan wants championships, but I want to be entertained. As long as they are competitive and it looks like they have a shot, the season will be a lot of fun.

    By the way, I'd gladly forfeit a superbowl win in order to see my team come back from 32 points in the second half of a playoff game. A game like that is more rewarding than any superbowl victory is.

    Better to be the second best team in league then the 4th best. Would be dissapointing to lose the SB over and over, but atleast we would be winning the AFC over and over.

    I'd like #2 because....you are IN THE SUPER BOWL!!!! If you keep going, you'll eventually win some of them. I want the Super Bowl as many times as I can get it!!

    #2 definately, I would love to be in the Super Bowl often, that's what great teams do. The only thing you can do better is win one, and I'm sure if we go a lot we'll eventually win one.

    If i had to choose between being the Colts, the Bills, or the Lions.. ill take choice A (the colts).

    Choice B SOUNDS fun.. but you dont hear people talking about the great Bills organization do ya? At least with option A, we may not be in the superbowl, but we will get plenty of respect around the league.. and the seasons would be interesting.

    It would be hard to root for a team that you knew would never be a champion. I'll take #3 and cherish the moment for life.

    I agree. I would have my desktop wallpaper be David Carr holding up the Lombardi in a storm of confetti... while being lifted up by Super Mario.

    The Oilers and Astros were/are option A and it sucked. It was frustrating as all hell. I'm sure it wasn't fun being a Bills fan either. All those Super Bowl loses. Man that sucks.

    I'll take the Super Bowl victory any day of the week.

    I just want a respectable team on the field, not an embarassment. Some one you can be proud of and yell for! The playoffs will come!!!!

    option 1 for me.. because when we get to the playoffs that means we have a chance.. also one reason I am glad we went defense in the draft..defenses win championships ... offenses well..look at the Colts..they rolled over everyone for 13 weeks.. 13 weeks for the AFC playoff bound teams to study game film of that offense and shut it down.. and it happened again.
