And that prior group was built out of another core group before that. That the team has remained a consistent player in the playoff picture speaks pretty highly of the skill with which the organization has been run, relatively speaking. Continuity and consistent performance is a very difficult thing to achieve in pro sports, especially for a an organization that has lacked in financial resources.
