Default 2005 Fantastic Four

The New Fantastic Four

Since the 2000 season, 19 clubs who had losing records the previous year have made the playoffs. That?s a remarkable average of almost four teams per season. In fact, there have been four teams making this jump every year except 2001, when three teams did it. Here is the list:

Giants, 12-4; 7-9 in ?99
Eagles, 11-5; 5-11 in ?99
Saints, 10-6; 3-13 in ?99
Broncos, 11-5; 6-10 in ?99

Patriots, 11-5; 5-11 in ?00
Bears, 13-3; 5-11 in ?00
49ers, 12-4; 6-10 in ?00

Titans, 11-5; 7-9 in ?01
Colts, 10-6; 6-10 in ?01
Giants, 10-6; 7-9 in ?01
Falcons, 9-6-1; 7-9 in ?01

Ravens, 10-6; 7-9 in ?02
Cowboys, 10-6; 5-11 in ?02
Panthers, 11-5; 7-9 in ?02
Seahawks, 10-6; 7-9 in ?02

Jets, 10-6; 6-10 in ?03
Steelers, 15-1; 6-10 in ?03
Chargers, 12-4; 4-12 in ?03
Falcons, 11-5; 5-11 in ?03

This trend suggests that four more teams will cycle upwards this year. The list also shows why we?ve been beating up on the preseason annuals, who have all penciled in most of last year?s playoff field, with only one or two revisions. This topic started downthread on an earlier post, but I?m going to modify is slightly.

Who will the Fantastic Four, 2005 edition be? My guesses are the Cowboys, Panthers, Cardinals and Raiders. as I can see all four swing teams coming from the NFC, which is in far more flux than the AFC.

Default Re: 2005 Fantastic Four

At first I thought you were talking about the movie!! :D

I'd have to say this year, it'd be..

The cardinals, Panthers, Texans, Raiders

If the cardinals don't make the playoffs or atleast get very close, I'll be pretty surprised. The Texans could be to deal w/ in the NFC as well.
