Well we got kind of spoiled in the 90s with Schottenheimer's teams because nearly every year until 98, he would have us in contention. But after Marty's departure, except for 2003, it's been mighty slim pickin's. You want to believe that the magic can return but it's been so long now, it's hard to imagine being a contender again. 97 took a lot out of me as a fan, I had really let myself believe that was the year. I'll go to my grave believing that if Marty would have just stayed with Gannon through the playoffs that he could have won it all that year. I've still been a fan since that time, but I've never let myself be a believer again. In 2003, when we started 9-0, I remember being at a game late in the season vs the Raiders and saw us fart around for 4 quarters and just barely beat them, and I knew in my heart at that moment that 2003 was going to yet another "Wait until next year" year. Sure enough, playoff time rolled around and we were "one and done" yet again.
