Exactly. They're the only team to lose 4 IN A ROW.

People crapped all over Denver when we lost 3 in 4 years.....then that was IMMEDIATELY followed up by 4 in 4 years by Buffalo.

Come to think of it.....that's pretty weird that the 8 seasons from 1986 through 1993......Buffalo and Denver represented the AFC 7 times in the Superbowl.....with Cincinnati going in 1988.

From 86 to 2000; Denver, Nyg, 9ers, Redskins, Cowboys, Pats, Buffalo played in every Super Bowl.

There is fail all over the place with this Super Bowl. The Giants have the worst record for a Super Bowl team, and their 2007 team is tied for the second worst record.

I can't think of any other American sport where the season's runner-up is so consistently viewed as the season's biggest loser.

Not sure why. I'm guessing:

1. The first four super-bowls were viewed as referendums on the NFL and AFL as a whole.

2. From the 80s through the mid-90s, so many games were blow-outs.

3. The hype surrounding the game still portrays it as the ultimate morality play.

4. The "super-bowl standings" themselves are a strange aberration that ranks a team in terms of its winning percentage regardless of how many times it has appeared.

5. Vince Lombardi - the ultimate sore loser and gloating winner.

Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch.

I guess there is something to be said for showing up to the big game with a defense.

Yes, I know. But Superbowl Champs are indicated by the SEASON year.....not the year the Superbowl is played.

We are regarded as the 1997 and 1998 Champs.....but our Superbowls were in January 1998 and 1999.

And that Broncos team would have kicked the **** out of either of the two pretenders that played last Sunday.

That doesn't matter for the purposes of my post. The game was played on the date it was played.

Not a big deal.....but you're still wrong.

If....when you say "86 to 2000"....you're referring to SEASON year....then you'd have to count the 1999 Tennessee vs. St. Louis Superbowl.

If....you're referring to year the Superbowl was played....you'd STILL have to count the Tenn vs. St. Louis Superbowl....as that was played in Jan 2000.

Whatever.

I was refering to the years, but that for telling ME what I meant.

"to 2000" means up until 2000. Had I wanted to included 2000 I would have said 2001.
