Active number of consecutive winning seasons (2019 included):
0: ARI, ATL, CAR, BUF, CIN, CLE, DEN, DET, GB, JAX, MIA, NYG, NYJ, OAK, TB, WAS
1: CHI, HOU, IND, SF
2: BAL, LAC, LAR, MIN, NO, PHI
3: DAL, TEN
Those teams like New England, Seattle, Kansas City, and Pittsburgh all have something most obvious in common and that’s stability at the top. Bill Belichick has been the coach of the Patriots for 20 seasons. Pete Carroll has been the coach of the Seahawks for 10 seasons. The Chiefs and the Steelers have both kept Andy Reid and Mike Tomlin in the top spot 7 and 13 seasons respectively.
I don’t think this is the only reason, but it’s sure as hell one of 'em. Ain’t saying Quinn and Patricia need to stay or go, but I am saying we better see some progress PDQ. So far I am not impressed, it feels like we are not drafting the best talent available and are overpaying players who are not exactly earning their paychecks.
