    the colts aren't a great dynasty

    a dynasty is a team who wins 3 championships or more with a core set of players / HC

    you can say NE is, but you can also infuse spygate and the fact that they were caught cheating and fined a draft pick and cash from the nfl, which taints their dynasty.

    Ken the snake Stabler. They had the best winning % of any professional sports team in the 70s.

It's all about which existing quarterback, or future quarterback, is going to emerge. If he's lucky enough to get a defense and O Line like Brady, then we might see the next dynasty. Barring injuries.
    Even though I cannot stand Bradshaw, he isn't in the HOF for nothing.

    Chargers.

    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.

    Well, possibly. They draft well and they have a great roster right now but I hear that they're going to be in some pretty deep cap related poo sometime in the future.

    I meant to say that they are not a dynasty in terms of winning SBs, but they are a dynasty in terms of being completely and utterly dominant for years (save a couple choke performances in the playoffs).

    By the way, I voted for the Cowboys. They are the Chargers of the NFC, but the organization has the pedigree and history of dominance that the Chargers don't.
