Default A couple trends you may not have known about...

1) No number one seed has won the Lomabardi since 2003. (Pats).

2) Starting in 2004, the SB winner has alternated between division champ and wild card winner.

2004 - Pats, division champ.

2005 - Steelers, #6 seed.

2006 - Colts, division champ.

2007 - Giants, #5 seed.

2008 - Steelers, division champ.


Conclusion?

I have a couple.....

First, #1 seeds are usually the flavor of the year but run out of steam come playoff time. If you want to see who the SB winner is, don't look at #1, look at who's in the middle of the playoff pack.

Second, the Bengals winning the division may not be a bad thing - the SB winner is due to be a wild card team this year.

Thought I'd share,

Raynestorm

The playoffs are all about who's playing hot and who's healthy. I still contend once we do make the playoffs, no one will want to actually play us.

I don't think you can really say who's "due" based on trends like this ... but yes, regular-season success doesn't matter anywhere near as much as peaking at the right time. If we come in on top of our game, we stand a great chance of winning it all. If we come in flat like in 2007, we'll be lucky to advance out of the first round.

I think Cincy is peaking too early.

I also think that they'll get cold come the end of the year....@Minn., @ San Diego and @ The Jets. Tough way to enter the post season.

But hey, they're Bengal fans...they're just happy to make the playoffs.
