And the Colts didn't even have a bye in last year's playoffs. They were NOT the favorites against the Ravens. Nor were the Steelers against Cincinnati and Indianapolis...not sure about Denver.
However, I appreciate the laugh:
"Grossman isn't a very good QB, but in the NFC Chicago don't need him to be one."
Yeah, they sure didn't against the Colts! How can you be a Year 3 Team if your QB can't win the Super Bowl game? And they're biggest competition is the Saints...for some reason, you seem to be doubting the obvious Third Year Theory potential of that team.
Really, it's not something I drew up multiple versions and threw it around a billion different scenarios. I wrote most of it while I was on a conference call the other day and wasn't interested in the subject.
So please, take it with a grain of salt.
Well thats fine, I guess.
I'll be sure to 'add salt' in future
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
