I'd take the 1996 team over the 2011 team, every time. Not that it wasn't fun last year and that playoff win wasn't great, but the team wasn't going anywhere without the big changes. The changes were made and now the team has a chance to go where that 1996 core eventually went.
I was pretty crushed after that Jacksonville game. At that moment it seemed like we were never going to see the promised land. Had 97 never happened nobody would look at 96 with any kind of fondness.
