Lets start with the AFC east:
Joke of a division, only one other team in that division has gotten a 1st round bye in 25 years (the Jets in 1998). No other division in football has had that massive of a drought where 3 of the teams couldn’t win at least 12 games more than once in a combined 75 seasons (25*3=75). Brady & Co. never have to worry about playing on the road in wild card weekend as a 5th or 6th seed.
On to the majority of the league: It seems like they play scared or already defeated before they step on the field against these guys! Steelers, Chargers, Colts, and so many of these AFC “power houses” over the years play with their tails tucked between their legs when they play these guys, you’d think they’d learn over 18 years of game film & experience with the Pats having the same QB & head coach. Then you have Wade Phillips putting on an absolute clinic defensively, while McVay puts up an even better sh** show with a laughable 3 pts in the superbowl.
Then you have the morons: Seahawks & Falcons, I’m looking at you. Stupid, moronic, boneheaded decisions by both teams that had superbowls in their hands, and throw it all away.
That leads me to my next three teams: the Giants, Eagles, & Ravens. These are the only 3 teams that I’ve seen that were not afraid of the moment & absolutely stuck the knife in the heart of the evil empire & weren’t shy about it. All these two teams did was play their own game while not getting choked up like all the other teams have.
Cheating scandals / allegations aside, I do not know how it’s remotely possible for a team to have the same formula for years now, & the rest of the league not be able to figure it out. It’s not like the Pats are an absolute cancer to the league like the Warriors were to the NBA, so why can’t teams end this dynasty already? Help me figure it out lol.
