Okay, so you're saying that Indi is on the same level as Houston, NE, Denver, Baltimore, Pittsburgh???
You're talking about them winning the AFC, and u think that they're "a few lucky plays away"
C'mon dude, be for real.
What Indi has already done this year has been awesome to watch, under the circumstances with their HC battling through cancer it's one of the better stories, if not the best in the NFL this year hands down...
But please excuse me if I disagree in the fact that they're even contenders with the aforementioned teams. They are NOT! And that isn't whole point. They are not even close to winning their own division, let alone a Conference title, and ultimately a SuperBowl
I'm saying they can be over the next few years... This isn't like the NBA where you have the same teams at the top for a few years... the nfl you can go from bottom to top and vice versa really quick... (See San fran).
I mean even looking at the panthers... look at the year both us and jacksonville made the championship game. 2 wins and you are 1 win away from the superbowl. When seattle made the super bowl some years ago no one saw that coming and they went back down to earth really quick. In the NFL the way it is, it's very possible the next few years from them, and countless other teams, especially given they have a young franchise qb... same for us.
