I was a lucky kid. And adult. I grew up with the emergence of Johnny Unitas-Artie Donovan's BALTIMORE Colts. Then headed West just in time to be around for John Madden's Oakland Raiders at their peak & for the full run of Bill Walsh-Joe Montana's SF 49ers. Then I moved to New England just as Bill Belichick was taking the Patriots to another level. My "streak" started with the '57 Colts ... and continues 48 years later. I've gotten a thousand thousand things wrong in my life, but if you're trying to predict future NFL franchise excellence, just watch where I move! As I said, I'm a lucky kid! (Addendum: As an old B'more boy, with my heart at least in part in Philly, I do hope that the 4th time is the charm for the Eagles this Sunday!)
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
