No, we're worse than the Cleveland Browns.
See, after they lost back to back AFCCG's they made the playoffs two more times before fading to losing records and oblivion. For us, the fade was more like a cliff.
It also bears stating that we weren't some strong dynasty of any sort. Lucky to get to 9-7 the first time, very fortunate to get to 11-5 the next. What we were was a great playoff team. We've always been a lousy regular season team.
You get a narrow window to do something in the NFL, ours closed. Many reasons why, but it did. Everything we do now has to be geared towards 2015 when Brady and Belichick are gone and maybe, just maybe
, our new head coach will be worth a damn.
