No. But that's the way it is. Let's face it, the lack of a ring is what kept Dirt Dawson out of the HoF again this year.
Exactly. It wasn't all that special, so it can't be diminished very much; it was no great shakes to begin with. Lots of teams have great regular seasons and then choke at the end. The '08 Pats can join all those Bills teams and Vikings teams.

The team that has led the season in passing yards has NEVER been the Super Bowl Champ. EVER. Not in 42 seasons, including the 07/08 season.

Now the media rats start jumping off the sinking ship.

Nice read. Have to agree on the 16-0 part. I believe they were shooting for that all along based on the way they were pounding teams into submission.

Good to see the ship is sinking at the media level as well.

You have to love the media for their penchant at making about faces.
