Once again, you're taking a general trend observed over a long period of time and trying to apply it to every season. When the Steelers have a couple of down seasons, they aren't the team to beat. That hasn't happened since the formation of the AFCN, but it has happened in the past and it is hard to totally avoid. Nothing in football applies Every Single Freaking Year...just temper your arrogance a bit and realize that the Steelers have been around for a very long time, and the formation of the AFCN coincided with a very successful period in Steelers history.

Come on now. You can't possibly be resorting to that just to avoid acknowledging the Ravens' success. Why are you combining the 0 playoff wins from the Bengals and Browns with the 8 from the Ravens? What we have is one team, since 1996, in the playoffs 8 times with 12 wins, and one team in the playoffs 6 times with 8 wins.

Besides, he said the past decade. That means since the 2000 season.
