He Only Got One, but He is a Good Human Person

Tony Dungy will no longer quietly stand on the Colts sideline.

Who else will Americans cheer for if their hometown team isn't in the playoffs?

I've never met a person outside of Boston who dislikes the Colts. Peyton Manning se
ems to be in every entertaining commercial on television and Chester Taylor look-alike Joseph Addai has outperformed fellow RB (and earlier draft pick) Laurence Maroney.

Unfortunately, Dungy is better known for all the times he didn't make the Super Bowl. He built a great winner in Tampa yet never made it to the Super Bowl with that team. Then scream-a-holic Jon Gruden watlzes in and gets one on the first try. In Indianapolis he won the big one once, but he has the best QB in football at his disposal. One?

That leads me to my question of the day:

Would you rather have a classy coach with only one Super Bowl win even though he has a franchise QB? Or would you have several Super Bowl wins with a social disaster of a head coach like Bill Belichick or Bill Parcells?

I know your first reaction is "bring on the Super Bowls!" Understandable.

But just think on this: what do you remember about those great Cowboys teams from the 90's? Do you think of Aikman running around with this pointer finger up in the air after a Super Bowl victory? Or do you think of Michael Irvin snorting cocaine off of a hooker's boobs? I'm guessing more people have the image of Irvin going to court in his full length fur coat more vividly than him scoring touchdowns.

Aside from Marvin Harrison allegedly running around shooting people at car washes, you can't really say anything bad about the Colts. In fact, the only thing I can say bad about the Colts is that their t
ight end pisses me off more than any fantasy player in the history of mankind.

So think on it. You only get one Super Bowl win, but you can make fun of other teams for having really unfortunate humans who hate their life running the franchise.
