Whatever you think, man.
A large point I'm trying to make is overarching, though:
The Colts traded away their franchise (Faulk) to get Manning after being pretty awful for years. Then they sucked for a year to the degree that they got Luck.
There's no foresight in just meandering along here. Long-term success.
Solid defense, solid QB play that elevates other players= NY Giants who are the model for how to build a football team these days.
Stack up D-line talent, get a great QB, win the games that count.
I mean would you have any basis for discrediting that a 10-6 or 9-7 Giants team coming off the Wildcard could win the Super Bowl?
