The above link shows 2002 - 2011, but as our record for 2002 and 2012 was the same, it doesn't really change anything.

You will see we had the 17th best record, and were below .500.

That's a far cry from the top 1/3.

include playoff success and eliminate all the teams above us with a worse record in the playoffs over the same time and you can eliminate 5 of the 15 teams ahead of us putting us in the top 10 when you include playoff success.

And then if you take our close losses by less than 7 points, divide them by the cube root of 54 and add them to our wins, we're actually the 3rd best team in league history, right?

C'mon man. We have a losing record over the last decade. There is no way for even the biggest homer to legitimately spin that into us being in the top third.

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
