LOL Think Caldwell deserves any credit for the Colts playing us in 2009?...

I know, that's why I posted it. I'm sick and tired of low IQ posters in a daze!

Re: Most difficult team task in the NFL

Well the thing I really learned from the run in 2009 is that, I learned how incredibly DIFFICULT it really is to get to a Super Bowl. Before, it was always just this extremely nebulous, far away dream that wasn't real, I didn't know how people did it or what it took. And I don't care who you are, LUCK plays a role in getting you there.

Every team that has ever been to a Super Bowl has had a few lucky bounces, easy breaks, or freak plays, along the route. The Meachem strip. The Darren Sharper pick 6 against Miami where he barely got in there with the ball in his hand. The fact that we got the Cardinals in the playoffs (due to a freak play in OT) rather than the (much better, I thought) Green Bay Packers. And loads more.

And like I said earlier in another thread -- in addition to the luck, I think the PATH to the Super Bowl for every team, is practically more important to getting them there than the team itself. Maybe you catch a break when a team in your conference or division that was previously strong, is suddenly weak. Maybe somebody else's QB goes down. Maybe you have the bulk of your hard games at home and the easy games on the road that year. Maybe you are the '06 Bears and you water down the home field in January so it turns to mush.

Then the seeds and matchups in the playoffs, that determine the PATH. Do you have to play in Green Bay. Do you have to beat a division team three times. How the other teams in your path match up with you, or who you DON'T have to play. Each team that gets there, has its own unique path that somehow plays to their strengths or diminishes their weaknesses.

Winning it when you're finally there is usually pretty straightforward, it's just a matter of winning one more game.

Re: Most difficult team task in the NFL

Some teams luck out and get in but there are teams that just have the formula down. Pittsburgh is a great example of a team with a plan. The Pats under Bilichik are the same. They're constantly renewing themselves so that even in a down season or two they're never really terrible and, by constantly bringing in new player talent while retaining stable coaching and management staff, they never have to go through a major rebuilding.

Even if your coach isn't great if the rest of the staff is high quality they can make up for it. That's what happened when Caldwel won a Super Bowl.

I'm hoping Payton will be a lifer like Tom Landry or Don Shula. Just move in and make it yours. I could see him in 15 years sitting up there where Mickey sits. Taking notes.

Re: Most difficult team task in the NFL

Someone help me understand this question...you can't win a super bowl without getting to a super bowl, and you can't win 2 super bowls until you have already won 1 super bowl, so how in the hell is repeating as super bowl champions not obviously the hardest task?

Sounds like someone was attentive in Philosophy 121: Elementary Symbolic Logic at Tulane?!?
