Not really. When you look at teams in th AFC E during the Brady years you will find that aside from the AFC W, it sent fewer teams to the playoffs than the other divsions. It was weak.
Brilliant logic troll. And the ability of the other teams in the division was not affected by having to play the winningest team of the past decade twice a season, right?
no, not really. Your post is generally for 9 years from 02-10. The pats have exactly 1 more Reg season win over 144 games (.7% better). I don't think anyone would call that statistically significant yet more AFC South teams went to the playoffs than afc east teams.
Since 2002 (realignment), over 9 seasons, BOTH the AFCE minus the Pats and the AFCS minus the Colts sent 6 teams to the playoffs.
Parsing are we my friend? in the 9 seasons you mention (MINUS NO TEAMS) - the afc south sent 15 teams to the playoffs while the afc east sent 13. The fact that the colts made the playoffs every year during that period while the pats missed 2 the playoffs two of those years actually hurts your argument.
Therefore, your assessment that the AFCE "was weak" is solely based on the Texans making the playoffs the last two years and nobody in the AFCE doing so.
The 9 years you mention is 02 thru 10. Houston did not make the playoffs until 11. Wrong again.
And even at that the comparison is mitigated by the Colts being the worst team in 2011 and not making the playoffs thus allowing another to win that division while the Pats were winning theirs.
You said 9 years since realignment. That's 02 thru 10. Wrong again. Heck lets include 2011. Houston went and the pats went. That's 16 AFCS to 14 AFCE. You're still wrong. Shall we include 2012 too (Heck Manning's gone yet the AFCS still sent 2 teams to one by the AFCE). That's 18 AFCS to 15 AFCE.
Troll exposed again as a spinner and liar.
No need to spin or lie. I'll use your criteria against you to make you look silly.
I call out your spin, showing that the last two years are the basis for your grandiose statement that the AFCE is weak and you call that parsing troll. This is why you are a disingenuous joke here. You are much more the parse artist in this than I since your conclusion regarding the division over a decade or so rests entirely on the Texans making the playoffs twice in the last two seasons.
Wrong twice in the first sentence alone. One - I didn't mention the last 2 years. You did. Further, you defined your years and then parsed my criteria by removing both the colts and pats from the equation. They are each a part of their division so they cannot be removed from the statement. The AFC S sent 2 more teams than your AFC E from 2002-2010 or 2002-2011 and 3 more 2002-2012. Slice it anyway you like Babe, as long as you don't slice out teams in the division, the AFC S sent more teams to the playoffs than your AFC E. And from 02-10 (your criteria) the Pats had only one more Reg season win than the colts. Not a statistical significance.
Troll owned again. Yes you were. So easy.
Typical delusional thinking from the troll. If you're going to claim the division the Pats played in is weak as a contributing factor to the Pats' success, then you have to compare the records of the OTHER teams in the division not including the Pats. Yet you try to inject the playoff appearances of the Colts/Pats into the equation.
The parsing king. I never said the pats division was weak as a contributing factor to the pats success. I said the pats division was weak compared to the other divisions. Stop spinning Babe - You're only tying yourself up in knots.
Troll owned again. Yes you were. Too easy.
Your entire premise is a joke anyway, as if counting playoff teams is the measure of the strength of a division. The overall record of the division is the measure troll, not who made the playoffs.
LOL, of course its a joke if you can't effectively dispute it, which you can't. But I'll bite on your own measure - total division record - 02-10 AFCS has more total wins than AFCE. LOL!!! Now what Babe? Time to parse or spin some more? LOL!!
Troll owned again. Again you were.
But this is not nearly enough troll smashing. Let's do more.
We'll take 2002 through 20012 and look at the division records and trash your pathetic and cherry picked standard of counting playoff teams. Lets look at the W/L of the two divisions.
From 2002 through 2012......
Oh heck, I just hadn't read down far enough. I was too busy owning you above when in fact you were doing exactly what I said you would do - just later in the same post. So now you are spinning a different time frame because your initial timeframe failed you miserably.
In those 11 seasons the AFCE won more game than the AFCS SIX times compared to the AFCS THREE times (two ties).
So now you are spinning, both a different period of time (because your initial time period failed you) and counting years not total record (because that failed you also). Babe, its a shame that you so publicly and obviously demonstrate your how pathetic you are.
Troll owned again.
Over those 11 seasons the AFCE lost 335 games, the AFCS 335 games.
Troll owned again.
I will always own you troll, because you are a liar and are incapable of objectivity because of your sick "sex assaulter" hero worship. Babe the only thing you own is a pathetic mind that will spin and parse even after public humiliation just to hopefully save a little face. I feel sorry for you.
