NFL '13 SEASON THREAD

Recommended Posts

People mock me relentlessly for siding with losing teams, so when the universally-beloved horse breaks it's leg in the final turn, it's my duty to return the favor.

K. I mean, not really, but K.

So after this who's the better Manning, Eli or Peyton?

Archie. Two multimillionaire sons to support him and supply with him with lavish comforts until kingdom come.

@ Seadragon and any other Seahawk fans here...congrats. Feels pretty damn good when "next year" finally arrives, doesn't it? And now you have the next America's Game episode to look forward to as well.

Last night's game sucked for anyone wanting a competitive game but it made me feel a little better about the Saints' performance in the Divisional round.

Congratulations to the Seattle Seahawks for winning their first Super Bowl. It wasn't a competitive game, but an interesting game if you liked to see a completely punishing defense like the 1985 Bears or the 2000 Ravens.

So Seattle has exited the FRATERNITY OF HAPLESSNESS (which is fine we didn't want you anyway) and the only remaining members are:

Arizona Cardinals

Atlanta Falcons

Buffalo Bills

Carolina Panthers

Cincinnati Bengals

Cleveland Browns

Detroit Lions

Houston Texans

Jacksonville Jaguars

Minnesota Vikings

Philadelphia Eagles

San Diego Chargers

Tennessee Titans

also, the Broncos' loss last night was their fifth defeat in the Super Bowl, which gives them the ignominious distinction of being the losingest team in Super Bowl history. The Bills and Vikings, each with four losses of their own, are off the hook for now.

I saw this tweet:

"Playoff W-L records since '06, min 10 starts: Eli 8-2, Flacco 9-4, Brees 6-4, Peyton 8-6, Brady 8-7."

My takeaway from that stat is that maybe it's just really f******* hard to win a Super Bowl and it's not all on the quarterback when they win or all on the quarterback when they lose.

Peyton. He has been to more Super Bowls and has a bunch of NFL records and MVP's.

Can you put Cleveland, Detroit, Houston, and Jacksonville in the frat if they've never been? :P

They each get their own sad bunk in the basement of the house. Cleveland and Detroit's being the saddest.

They must've passed the bar test. Or, you know the old saying; "misery loves company".

I wonder who will be the next to leave this tightly-knit group of lovable losers...

Of that group, the Panthers seem like they're closest. But with the NFL it's so hard to say. The Texans and Falcons were primed for a leap this year that didn't happen. The Bills were a few bad breaks from an 8-8 or 9-7 season this year, and with the AFC being revealed as a bum conference this year, who knows what could've happened.

The Seahawks benefitted from amazing value on their roster, the kind you can't really get with a first round pick as your starting QB. Wilson will make peanuts the next two years, but is the winningest young QB of all time. It's hard to replicate that formula.

That's still almost half the league. Wow.

I'm giving the Panthers, Jaguars, and Texans a pass because they're all still relatively new, but the rest of those teams have all been around since the inception of the Super Bowl (Basically, the Bengals missed out on the first two, and the Browns taking a three year "break" to pursue other interests).

With only 25% of the league (Steelers, Cowboys, 49ers, Giants, Packers, Patriots, Redskins and Raiders) hogging 33 of the 48 trophies it's no wonder so many teams have never won the Lombardi.

This run of inequity has also made for teams like the Jets and Chiefs who have Super Bowl championships, but haven't been back to the big game in over 40 years.

For whatever you want to take it for, the Titans (by virtue of the Houston Oilers) and Chargers did win championships in the AFL, pre-Super Bowl years. Maybe the Bills did as well, but I don't remember for certain with them.
