The Bucs and Rams went 7 -9 after their Super Bowl appearences and the the Raiders went 4 -12. Carolina was 7 - 9 last year. An arguement can be made for the Patriots that a dynasty is actually in the making (as long as they beat Carolina). The Patriots could actually have a better team next year as long as they can keep Ty Law. With Roosevelt Colvin coming back and all those early draft picks in April, I could see the Pats winning two in a row easily.
I can dream, can't I!
yes, i would love to see the Pats win a few more after this year, but let's not get ahead of ourselves. Let's just focus on winning this year.
After all, would you consider the Rams to be a dynasty?
They won the Super Bowl three years ago,
made the playoffs the next year with a 9-7 record,
then the next year went into the Super Bowl with a 16-2 record but lost to us Pats.
I wouldn't consider them to be a dynasty. Hopefully we don't fall into their trap and that we actually win the Super Bowl twice in three years.
