    Only time will tell if a new dynasty emerges during a time when Free Agents move to different teams to chase the almight $$$, rather than championships.

    Go Bolts!
    You are right LT isnt Shaun Alexander...... Alexander would have playerd in the Championship game even if he was hurt. That really showed me what LT was about..... Lets sit out the biggest game of the year and let my back up try and lead us........Grow a heart

    a 60% LT is twice as good as a 100% Turner

    I'm a homer, but to be honest, I'd have to say SanDiego! (unless Denver can somehow come out on top)!

    The Pats were able to do it. They've been charmed by having a horrible division for several years. Of course, great drafts, a fantastic QB, coach, front office, etc. will make it that much easier.

    The one thing working against the Cowboys is that they are in one of the strongest NFL divisions. It's hard to get the 1 or 2 seed year after year if you keep smashing heads against tough division rivals.

    For the same reason, I can't see the Broncos being a dynasty until SD sucks again. The easiest division to start a dynasty would be the NFC West. Nothing but cupcake teams there.

    I think that the biggest thing working agianst the Chargers is LT. How many years the guy got left? He had a lot of carries in a short time, and RB's talent leaves them very fast (Shawn Alexander). I say he has 2 more dominate years at best and then he is going to fall off fast

    I had to say the AFC North....... I think that the Browns are the next team to come down the line to be great. I think they got a great young QB, a Dominate WR, a monster LT, I think that have accuired some solid young players for the D. Plus they got Quinn, someone is going to pay a hefty price to get him next offseason, and that is going to lead to a couple extra picks (my guess is something like the 2 seconds and a third that Atl got for Schaub)I think that Cleveland is going to be a very dominate team in the very near future

    Legitimate point about LT not getting any younger. He has said he'll fulfill his contract, which runs through 2011. But realistically, he's only got 2 or 3 years of great play left likely.

    However, you are wrong about the Chargers and their free-agency situation. They have extended the majority of their starters to long-term contracts, and there are only a few that would hit the market in the next few years, and the Chargers are well-positioned under the salary cap. It's possible that Merriman and Cromartie prove impossible to sign, in which case the Chargers will likely use the franchise tag if need-be.

    I'm not exactly sure how AJ Smith did it, but he's got this team perfectly positioned for some runs at the title over the next few years. And the funny thing is that the lineup is one of the youngest in the league, so they should only get better.

    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!!

    That's not true at all. San Diego is actually in a great position to retain the majority of their impact players, and add to it. They are arguably in one of the best spots an NFL team can be in if the uncapped year hits. Far better off than Denver.

    As far as LT goes, he's done nothing in given them success in the playoffs. In fact, it wasn't until he was hurt, and a literal non factor, that they started winning in the playoffs. They are a strong enough team, and will be just fine when LT is done. In fact, they were in the post season last year.

    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.
    one out of two ain't bad, hey?

    Yeah, there are two reasons. Franco Harris and the Steel Curtain.

    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.

    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.
    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.
