Tandy Posted August 22, 2011 Share Posted August 22, 2011 I do know the history, so spare the lesson.The fact that we are satisfied with a playoff appearance instead of a playoff victory shows that the fan base is satisfied with mediocrity. If you don't remember Marty Schotteinheimer was fired after going 14-2 and losing in the playoffs. Why? Because the ownership grew sick and tired of choking in the playoffs. Say what you will about the Chargers, but our franchise is not much better than theirs. As a California resident, I know a fair amount of Charger fans, and they show an eagerness for excellence Atlanta fans lack. They aren't satisfied with just winning seasons. They want to win, and they want to win now.You're so right! They've had to build a new trophy room to place all those championship trophies since then huh? :ph34r:When is the last time they went to the Super Bowl again? Just curious. That's a really horrible comparison since they have won no more Super Bowls than we have and they didn't even make it to the playoffs last year. So exactly what was your point about that? Turner has been in there since 2007 with no Super Bowl appearance - so that's ok, but our guys who have only been here since 2008 get no credit for the gigantic leaps they have made with this team.What a load of hypocrisy!As for the history - you are the one who said you didn't know it. I was just helping you out.The fact that you would be satisfied with a playoff victory instead of the Lombardi shows that you are satisfied with mediocrity.Get off your high horse and look at reality. We are good, in fact we are **** good. If you can't see it - then all I can say is there are none so blind as those who will not see.
