You have obviously missed the part of professional sports that no team wins it all every year. Not the F'n Yankmees, not the Canadiens (eh?), Not the early 2000's patriots, not even the Celtics of the 60's, who owned their league like no other professional sports team ever did. Why? Possible the league caught up to them. Did they get real dumb real quick? Did age of the players have anything to do with it? Red was still around, and rebuilt the team into a 70's and 80's powerhouse, yet had "only" 5 more championships. Possibly complacency on the behalf of some players. Maybe even a refusal to adapt to league changes quickly. Perhaps "big money" has something to do with explaining how good teams perform. But, can it also explain how teams spending like to like aren't as successful? A dropped pass here, a blown blocking assignment there, a poor pass route there can contribute. Especially at a critical time in teh game. I still profess that the Patriots lost last year playoff game because of what they DIDN'T execute rather than anything the JESTS! did to stop them. But, hey; that happens. A loss is a loss is a loss. There are no style points on losses.
Maybe you don't understand that even Fat Rexy boasted that the JESTS! would win the SB last season. Now, talk about a fool, making a boast that his team could not possibly make happen! It's how you finish. NOT winning the Super Bowl, let alone getting to one, is NOT a solid goal, after boasting and spending big FA money. Can you comprehend that the JESTS! are the new Philthydelphia Iggles of the AFC? Same green and white colors, underachieving when it REALLY matters.... The only difference is that the JESTS! don't have McNabb to kick around.
Enjoy your "pretender" years! You do know that not too many fans out there were around in 1969, let alone remember it. But, fear not! At least you have something in your distant past that the Bills, Bengals, Browns, Chargers, Texans, Jaguars, Cardinals, Iggles, Falcons, Panthers, Seahawks, Titans, Vikings, Lions, Bucs can't lay claim to: a post merger NFL Championship.
At least it's one...... Enjoiy it!
