1991, 1-15 (playing against a regular schedule)
1992, 9-7 (playing against a "fifth-place" schedule)
1993, 4-12 (playing against a regular schedule)
1994, traded away, and a journeyman QB that was a legit leader carried them to an 8-8 record against a "fifth-place" schedule and playoff run.
Sure, that was really under Bob's watch, but this team hasn't been very good at converting highly-picked QBs into franchise QBs with one exception.
You're counting on lightning to strike twice? Might take more than just "Luck".
With Harrison, Faulk/ Edge, and a capable line, the previous franchise QB also had a lot more to work with.
Of course, I'm no fan of the Irsays so these opinions aren't as offensive to me.
