read the chart clockwise. for example, start with the Broncos (at 4 o'clock). the Broncos beat the Titans 26-20. the Titans beat the Cowboys 34-27. the Cowboys beat the Texans 27-13. etc.

the creator put some work into this. it's a bit like a jigsaw puzzle to work it out, but he did. does it mean anything? not really, but it's still kinda cool to see that he could come up with a sequence that works and that includes all of the teams.

Good god, you're a bore. Honestly... you're just miserable.

Hope things get better for you, man. You used to be somewhat interesting.

Pretty cool... and I mean, he's right. We've talked about this here already. There is no great team this year, and there won't be. Some decent team will win the SB this year by catching fire at the right time.

In some senses, it's a shame that there isn't a "great" team right now. Conversely, fans of struggling teams like ours can look at this as evidence that just a few good moves can get your team right back in contention the following season.

Dude posts a semi-interesting thread and you come in with your Debbie-Downer routine.

What, you'd prefer it was the 100th "we're doomed forever" thread?

Good lord.

And you have to lash out and attack.

3-7 makes everyone but you and TSI sad.

Sad?

Football doesn't make me "sad," guy. It's a game.


You're the one attacking a dude's thread for no real reason. Sorry this impacts your life to such a degree.

Wasn't this the first year that the NFL after 8 games every team had two losses or something?

Parity is supposed to pull everybody towards the middle. I guess parity doesn't work in Denver.

Wouldn't surprise me.

Thing is... who's the best team in the league? The Falcons? Philly? The Jets?

Those are some very sub-par "best" teams.

We came close to beating the Jets, and if you add Doom and Ayers to our team... I think we'd hang with Atlanta. Philly is a wild-card because of Vick.
He's a one man-gang that can't be stopped, but I have a feeling teams will figure out how to, just like they did on his first go around. He's a better passer now, but some defense will figure him out.

Well, we've been around .500 forever, including last season... until this year.

We could still finish out in that range.
