Sorry, I've been out of town. :)

I did read the article, and since I've promised to post only positive things on this forum that's all I can say at this time. :D

Wait, I didn't get it.

Either way, I don't buy the oldest thing. As Tandler noted in his CSN article: "In all, of the ten oldest teams in the league, seven finished with records of .500 or better."

Well, they don't list the 7 of ten but in the article at the link we have this:

Three of the four oldest teams in football last year (New Orleans, Arizona, New England) won their divisions.

The reason I ask is because If a franchise put together a bunch of young guys and let them grow and build chemistry together as a team, I would expect that franchise to see some success when that team got older and that chemistry got stronger.

I'm not sure that's the model we have been following.
