No - 2008-09 was the Houston Texans 1st Non-losing Season (8-8-0)
The 2009 season is the 8th consecutive season the Colts have made the playoffs. They last missed the playoffs in 2001.
The Colts are a fairly good team as of 2009, when they made it to the Super Bowl for the second time in three years. Over the first decade of the 21st Century, they are among the most consistently successful teams, their record tarnished only by failures in the playoffs. They are the only team in NFL history to win at least 12 games in seven consecutive seasons (2003-2009).
The bad ones?
No one. No teams have ever made the playoffs with a losing record. The Seattle Seahawks of the 2010-11 season are the very first team to make the playoffs with a losing record.
Yes. Six teams from each conference make the playoffs, the four division winners and the two teams with the best won/loss record that did not win their division. If a division winner's record is less than .500 they still make the playoffs. If the record of one of the two teams with the best record that did not win their division is less than .500, they still make the playoffs. Only three teams with losing records have ever made the NFL playoffs: The Browns and Lions both entered the 1982 playoffs with 4-5 records. (The season was shortened by a players' strike.) In 2010 the Seattle Seahawks won the NFC West with a 7-9 record, becoming the first NFL team to make the playoffs with a losing record in a full season.
