Superbowl, that's why they play. He never said the team would be completely horrible for the 9 years.

Make the playoffs without a championship, b/c then I wouldn't have to suffer for 9 years.

Exactly. I dont think anyone grasps how bad 9 years of futility is. If it was spread out 5 years missing playoffs, 1 super bowl, 4 years missing playoffs, then maybe. But if your team is still reveling in the light of a SB nine years ago and not making the postseason since, you will get hella made fun of.

Without making the playoffs for 9 years straight, fan interest would really go down, despite that one super bowl win. I'd rather make the playoffs 10 years straight because it will keep me interested with the team and it's always exciting to watch your team in the playoffs. Hopefully we win the SB in year 11.

To go off of what Chris said, it depends on if I'm a player or owner. If I'm the player than I want that ring. At the end of the 10 years it will come down to 1 Super Bowl ring vs 0 Super Bowl rings. However, if I'm an owner I'd take the 10 years without a Super Bowl win.

I'd rather have the Titans win the Super Bowl and then continue to own the Texans in the regular season despite not making the playoffs.

I think I'd take the playoffs honestly. 10 years ion a row of making the playoffs would be great because once your in the playoffs anything can happen. Plus it's always good to be a more dominant team in your own division.

9 years in a row out of the playoffs would be miserable.

For the Jaguars, you unfortunately have to take the 10 straight playoff appearances.

We need stability and deep playoff runs, not "one shining moment". 9 years of losing seasons, no matter what preceded it, might drive the team out of the city.

That is a tougher question than it seems. Sure, 1 superbowl is great, but 9 years of sucking is a long time. The superbowl gets forgotten and you become a laughing stock. 10 years of playoff appearances and superbowl contention gets respect no matter what.

I cant think of a 10 year example but over the last 5 or so years we saw the Bucs win 1 superbowl and then they have missed the playoffs every year since but the Eagles have been a steady contender every year but couldnt get it done? Who would I rather be? That is a tough one. Ill go against the grain and say 10 years of contention

Definitely winning the super bowl, that is the ultimate.

Ask Donovan McNabb which he would rather do.

10 years of playoffs. it is awesome to win a superbowl, but it is a truely crappy feeling having 9 years of constant disappointment.

9 years is just too long.

It should be a 5 year time period because making the playoffs 10 straight years without winning the Super Bowl is unrealistic in my opinion, the monkey on the back of that team would have to be enlarged with Star Wars-Quality special effects. If a team makes it 5 years in a row in all likelihood they will get to at least the Super Bowl.

its funny cause with the lions fan base, you would think that winning a SB wasnt a high need, but I agree that being playoff for 10 years straight, would incraease fan base higher than the 1 SB, and of course, then we would win the SB, so we could ahve both
