The Patriots were good, but when Brady stepped onto the scene it seemed like everything fell into place with defense and they just kept getting better through the years. What team shows signs of being close to putting together a dynasty-like run?
    isnt a dynasty winning a super bowl 3 times with the same players? colts only won one

      OK I'll admit I am a HOMER
      elway didn't have an amazing defense did he? i mean in retrospect the only thing i can do is look up stats, and i know there all top 5 and stuff but wasn't it a bit high because of how good the offense was, etc? i know they had atwater and a few other stars, but its not like they had multiple surefire hofs on it.

        elway had a damn good defense and good special teams. not to mention the best running game in the league. that was the reason we went 17-2.

          If I remember correctly, the 97 Broncos team was the worst run defense to ever win a Super Bowl at one point... but that has a lot to do with the style of defense too.

            Jay Cutler is going to win a super bowl before Phillip Rivers ......


            The Denver Broncos are going to be the Next dynasty in the NFL.

              i was lazy and didn't quote whoever said the Chargers have the talent for years to come and draft well etc.

              the problem with the chargers though is that they suck.

              at least manning finally won a superbowl...

              i don't think any other team that had that good of a team (the chargers) would suck and choke that much.

              actually maybe the colts and chargers are exactly alike save for that one huge detail that the chargers can't win a superbowl.

              none the less, they won't be a dynasty anytime soon because of that fact.

              the colts still have some time if manning can get them back twice...but i doubt it.

              i like denver's chances, but that's because i always think denver is going to win the superbowl every year....well, at least i'd like them to.

              heck, if the giants keep it up, they might emerge...if they can keep that great defense going...eli's really actually coming along too.

              i still wanna see a Manning War Super Bowl.

                When they were talking about what a dynasty was on NFLTA TD called us a dynasty. Plus, if you weren't considering Super Bowl wins, just appearances, the Bills would be #1 for going to four straight, nobody calls them a dynasty, so the Colts aren't a dynasty.(just proving your point a little) Back on topic, we're the next great dynasty, could I say anything else?

                  I voted for the Steelers. They always seem to have good, hard-hitting D. Their quarterback is top five from last year (Brady, Manning, Favre, Romo, Roth). The running game can pound it out and make Defenses worry about it. It may fall through. But I could see them coming along in the next few years, especially if Roth gets better.

                  The Chargers do have a solid team, but won't they be losing some guys to FA/the cap soon? I think this was mentioned before. Plus, I think guys will want to leave (emerging guys like Cromartie) if they don't start winning SBs real soon.

                    While I will agree that technically the Colts are not a "dynasty" in the SB sense, you can't compare them to the bills because, for the last 5 years or so, they have been arguably the most dominant team in the top conference during the regular season. The Bills ruled the inferior AFC in the early 90s, but that's sort of like being the smartest kid in a special ed. class.

                    If they aren't a "dynasty", there needs to be another word for a team that is dominant for so long.

                      A lot like Colts.

                      Colts had several successful seasons, only for Manning to not get over that hump and win his first, then the success just snowballed after that.

                      I can see the same thing happening with the Chargers unfortunately.
                      The difference is, the Colts and Patriots have a good coach..............

                        Well, it could be argued that one of those good coaches was outcoached by Turner in their playoff game. He certainly found a way to contain Manning.

                          I disagree. Dominance is dominance. Its not like the Bills didn't play NFC opponents when taking their four straight trips to the SUper Bowl.. and its not like they "picked" their division or conference. THey played the teams on their schedule and made it to four straight... that IS dominance and a dynasty.

                          The Colts are NOT a dynasty in the least. Winning a lot of games doesn't make you a dynasty.

                          The Patriots have dominated the absolute worst division in the NFL.... should we hold that against them? The Bills, Dolphins and Jets? No wonder they continue to go to the playoffs.

                          Sorry Lomax.. I just don't agree with you at all in this topic.

                            I also know that Belicheck was outcoached in the Super Bowl.. but that doesn't take away from the fact that he's a good coach.

                            That being said, I have been one to state that Dungy is an over-rated coach for YEARS... and still believe it.

                            But I don't think Norv Turner is a good coach at all. He's proved that time and time again.

                              The Chargers have probably a 1-2 year window left. When FA hits many of their start players, it's going to be very tough for them to keep the depth they have. Plus, LT is not getting any younger.

                              They will be a tough team for awhile, and who knows, they may even weasel a championship out of it (Although thinking of Norv Turner winning a championship makes me lollerskate).

                              The next Dynasty looming on the Horizon is....
                              The Broncos of course!!
