I was going to make the same point.

Ah, good old Eugene Robinson. He played a big roll in two of my favorite memories of all time!

Kudos for him winning the 1998 NFL Man of the Year award, though.

Without looking it up due to laziness, didn't the Colts make the playoffs the next season with a 8-8 record or 9-7 and then was one Hell Mary pass away from upsetting the Steelers and going to the Super Bowl? Fast turnaround.
Looking it up now it looks like they went on to win two more games after the Green Bay one later in 97 to finish 3-13. The next year (98) was Peyton Manning's rookie season, when they also went 3-13. It was 99 that they had the incredible turnaround and went 13-3, the Manning legend was born, etc.
