Lets not get ahead of ourselves. It's not the Bungles anymore maybe, but they haven't proven anything else yet.
I never said they've proven anything. I'm saying that if you're objective it's impossible to make a connection with the team we have now and the Bungle/jailbird teams.
The back to back streak is because we've never been able to compete with a playoff team's schedule. This year we are. We blew out the SB champs on our home field. Our two first draft selections last year made the PB and are now the face of our franchise. The defense has been amazing. I mean, the list goes on.
I don't know if we'll get in, but people hanging onto teams in the past aren't being fair to the guys we currently have. We're young and talented, a bad game isn't going to suddenly take me back to 15 years ago.
