Five Teams Entering Their Super Bowl Window

A-Rod is happy? I’d be pretty happy with a half a BILLION dollar$!   😋

 

I tried to cancel them for years, with no luck. Finally, the credit card number got cancelled after being compromised. They stopped coming.....for a while. A few years later one started showing up for free in my wife’s name. Few people in this great nation of ours (hey, it’s July 4th! Celebration time!) care less about sports than my wife. And she’s not into it for the swimsuit issue. I thought it was a pathetic attempt to up circulation. NOW, we get a second issue in the name of a deceased family member.  Just what we needed! 

 

They make Wells Fargo look like the standard of integrity! 

You can't ***** half a BILLION dollar$!

 

Now this...

I was glad the Dolphins went Brian Flores. I was really worried they were gonna hire Kris Richard who I think has a chance to be really good.

The article lost complete credibility when they included the Dolphins.

It’s weird, but it’s almost becoming the “in vogue” thing to predict the Fish won’t stink.

Dolphins, seriously wtf. The only window open for them is the one leading to the basement of the AFC East. They will be lucky to win 6.

I would've added the Titans or Texans to this list instead of the Fins just because New England is so invincible as long as they have the two headed monster at coach and QB.  The AFC East will be wide open when Brady retires and us and the Jets are farther along than the Dolphins.  Odd choice by Orr but not surprising since he wrote this in May....  Maybe he thinks we're stuck in the middle.

 

Teams that have gotten the courage to rip their rosters down to the studs (having done so with a long-term vision and aligned organizational mentality) have usually been rewarded….I’d rather be a Dolphins fan right now than a lot of other teams stuck in the middle. – Connor Orr, MMQB

Who spells "Conner/Connor" with one N?

If you're a fan/columnist/writer who thinks Josh Allen will be a legitimate starting QB, then you must put the Bills in the "up and coming" list.  If you're not, then you ignore them.  This dude clearly is in the second group.

 

Miami -- lol.

To put the Dolphins in there over not only the Bills, but Jets as well, is silly.

Even if he's not a Josh Allen fan, one would think that the Jets with Darnold (who showed great promise) and Le'Veon Bell on offense and CJ Mosley, Quinnen Williams, and Jamal Adams leading the defense ought to be in well ahead of the Dolphins. 

The Dolphins?! I mean...WHAT?! The argument could be made that they're literally the furthest from entering a "Super Bowl window" of any team in the league.

 

I'm guessing his thinking on the Jet's is Darnold will take at least another year or two to reach his prime, assuming he is the real deal.  But by then guys like Bell and others will be too far on the downslide.

 

Even if Flores and Rosen turn out to be the real deal, way too many other holes on Miami to be taken seriously.  They'd have to hit real big on all their draft picks.  And if you want to give Flores the benefit of the doubt because he's  from NE, then you have to give him doubtful marks on hitting on all their draft picks.  NE hasn't won all their Super Bowls of late due to great drafting.  More getting vets to sign for less for a chance to win a ring and overall good cap management and even that part I'm not certain of, but assume it's worked out as that's allowed them to sign all these guys.  Just way to many questions in Miami at this point to have any idea.

I think this is a myth.  What teams in the last decade or so have done this and had long term (ie, mutliple year) success as measured by playoff appearances and wins?   Lots of people talk about this but the examples they give aren't very recent, so they aren't good models for the current NFL.  The teams that have made sudden turn-arounds in recent years like Philly, the Rams, the Chargers and Chicago all built around the talent already on those teams, even when the team as a whole was underperforming.

I agree with this as it's nearly impossible to do a full rebuild in football.  Cleveland was so bad they did it by default and they're still Cleveland so we don't really know if they'll be as good as advertised.  Miami and Buffalo would be the closest thing to a full rebuild I've seen in a while after a decade plus of mediocrity.

The Dolphins!? They will be picking top 5 in the draft next year. They haven't even found their winning season window yet.

 

New coach, new QB who got traded away after 1 year, new schemes, and absolutely no evidence of being a contender.

 

I don't think the Bills or Jets should be on a list like that either. 3 very unproven teams, but at least the Bills have been building something whereas the other two are starting from scratch.

Actually I think the Bears are exactly the example you are looking for. Ryan Pace took over as General Manager in January 2015 inheriting a roster including Jay Cutler, Matt Forte, Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennett and Brandon Marshall on offense and Lance Briggs, Willie Young, Lamar Houston and Jared Allen on defense. He immediately set about tearing that roster down over the following two seasons and the team went 6-10 followed by 3-13 as he stripped away talent. 2017 was supposed to be when the rebuilt roster started to show its worth but they were young and not ready to win hence a coaching change and the success of 2018. But the only two guys who were on that reasonably talented 2014 roster that Pace kept around in his strip back and rebuild were the two most recent 1st rounders - Kyle Long and Kyle Fuller.

 

So Chicago did basically take the strip back and rebuild approach. The question with the Bears is still the pay off. I am not ready to crown their asses yet. The Bears may yet be who we thought they were.

"A bit different, as we still may not have seen this team completely bottom out yet ... The buy-low rental of Josh Rosen is useful for a franchise that will spend the next year evaluating quarterbacks and preparing the roster for an accelerated climb in the AFC East in the post-Tom Brady era."

 

So their definition of a team entering their Superbowl window is a team that hasn't yet "bottomed out" and who will be "evaluating quarterbacks" next year?

 

To me that sounds like a bad team. Their own description condemns them.

I don't get all the Flores love in the media - not even sure he was a full DC last year.  If so, he only had one year in the job.  It will be interesting watching him and Gase in the AFCE next year.

But, but, he's a Belichick protege.  All Belichick protoges are destine for greatness.  You know that, just like Bill O'Neill.  Oh yeah, maybe not.

I believe that the Bears are for real and they will be back. If it wasn't for a missed field goal (we can certainly relate) they could have done some damage last year

I’ll say it right now.....a year from now the Bills will be the media darlings to come out of the AFC.

I agree...2020 seems to be the Bills year.

Colts are the best of that bunch. They have a better QB and an emerging O-line and defense. They need to add another WR to complement TY.

I liked Rosen but the Dolphins seem like a bottom 5 team not one near the top soon.

Dolphins? I Don't get it either.
