To add insult to injury, I just noticed that some of our "friends" at the bottom of that list (Falcons, Chargers), even managed to get in a Super Bowl despite their futility in that span.

To put things in perspective, if that list were from 1983 to 1993, we'd be at the top and Green Bay would be at the bottom. Everything goes in cycles.

I see your point Orangeskin, but the fact of the matter is that in this sport, or any other sport for that matter, its a case of what have you done for me lately. In our case, the answer is clearly nothing. Now I understand that things aren't always gonna be bright, and yes, bad seasons are something that all franchises endure, but two playoff appearances since our super bowl season simply doesn't cut it. Especially when you see some franchises turn things around in a matter of a few seasons. No excuses for what we have had to live through lately as fans.

Rat, here's another list that shows how few really good years we have had. This the best season that each team has had during the 1993-2002 time period.

Vikings: 15-1

Broncos: 14-2

Jaguars: 14-2

Rams: 14-2

Falcons: 14-2

Packers: 13-3

Chiefs: 13-3

Steelers: 13-3

Bears: 13-3

49ers: 13-3

Colts: 13-3

Titans: 13-3

Buccaneers: 12-4

Cowboys: 12-4

Giants: 12-4

Ravens: 12-4

Raiders: 12-4

Eagles: 12-4

Bills: 12-4

Panthers: 12-4

Jets: 12-4

Dolphins: 11-5

Patriots: 11-5

Chargers: 11-5

Saints: 10-6

Redskins: 10-6

Lions: 10-6

Seahawks: 9-7

Cardinals: 9-7

Bengals: 8-8

What makes it even worse is the possiblilty that the Seahawks and Bengals could equal our best year in 2003, leaving us ahead of only the Cards.

Thanks, I feel much worse now that I know we are bottom feeders. Why didn't I take the blue pill?

Did you forget about the Cowboys?

The Eagles are in the top 11 in wins in both of those charts, but never reached a SB in those 20 years. :doh:

Can't compare the two time periods at all. In the past the Squire could just cut the checks and stash a Typien for example. Now everyone has the same amount to spend.

Could it be that Gibbs saw the handwriting on the wall ?
