Root against the Colts tomorrow. I had forgotten about a stat I meant to monitor all season, and luckily just remembered.
The 1984-1988 Chicago Bears had held the NFL record for most regular season wins in a five-year period with 63. Last weekend, the Colts tied the Bears’ mark with 12, 12, 14, and 12 win seasons from 2003-2006, and now 13 in 2007. We’re now tied. If the Colts win against Tennessee this week, they will break the Bears’ record.
I’d say we should root against the Colts, but so many dubious records have been set by the 2007 Bears, why bother?
Funny, I haven’t seen any of the “real media” take note of this?
For the record, as can be read in the comments, after writing this I realized the Patriots blew away this five-year Bear record this year, and the Colts bested it as well.? Another notable Bear disappointment in 2007.
