In response to Not-A-Shot's comment:
[QUOTE]I am certainly not "SB or bust", but at the same time, it's difficult to explain not winning it all very often if you believe in the Mt. Olympus address of Belichick. If he's THAT awesome, there should be better outcomes to seasons than "they beat the teams that played the SB last year" and "missed the playoffs, but if they didn't..."
Belichick is a great coach, a poor GM.
Well, if Belichick is a poor GM then so are the rest.

These guys are the best of the best but they are no better than Belichick.
1.) All of those teams won a Superbowl ... two if you inch back a season.
2.) BB also missed the playoffs once.
They are all good GMs -- maybe excepting Mickey Loomis in my opinion. I think he is just average: he misses a lot with some high picks.
