Negative. 3 out of the 4 teams from last years championship games are in the championship games this year.

They have the same salary cap as the Panthers, what do you want the NFL to do, give everyone a participation trophy?

Yep, we're right at our usual 6 to 8 win level.
11 times in our poorly run Organization's history now.

Shows what a well-ran franchise looks like.

The teams that tried to buy a championship are sitting at home. The teams that know how to play the draft are playing next weekend.

From year to year you can't expect that much parity. Over a 5-10 year stretch it's pretty damn good. The bottom dwellers of the AFC screw everything up though. Who would have thought IND, CIN, MIN, WAS and SEA would have made the playoffs this year?

I can't wait for the Pats to crash and burn after Brady retires.

The reason for that is those teams aren't drafting so to make the playoffs the following year like the panthers do every year. They draft to add depth. So it's hard to de-throne them. They have plenty of time to be patient and scout well. Unlike the panthers that goes for the first Mel Kiper hype every year that end up busting. Plus those organizations with their coaches understood early on what the most important positions were: OFFENSIVE LIVE and QUARTERBACK. It doesn't matter what order they come: JUST GET IT DONE.

Those teams don't try to fix everything in one draft. They fix major weakness all in one draft. I remember NE a draft or two ago went all out on defense. Now look at their defense. Mediocre coachs/GMs, like Rivera, draft one position each every year and never get anywhere.

If Belichick were hired to coach this team you'd imagine the first thing he'd do is draft all O Line this year and have them compete in camp to stabilize the offense. With the Depth, the following year he'd look at the WR core. In 2 years we'd have a top 5 offense. Not the gimmicky top 5 offense where the QB is running and throwing the ball incessantly because they're playing from behind.

It's not rocket science. Some of those coaches/GMs are dumb ex-players that got hit too much in the head. They are stuck in their old ideology. They can't see the bigger picture. They all believe all they need to do is "run the ball" so they can keep their job.

It took those morons over 100 years to figure the read option could be as effective as the play-action-pass. A very similar play, where instead of throwing it in a play-action-pass the QB run it instead. Pretty much it's a play-action-run. You notice that simple little 'innovation' was figured out in an academic institution while the simpletons in the NFL proclaimed it could never work in their 'sophisticated' league.

Remember how dumb those jocks were in high school? Yep! They're the ones managing your organization for you. You think Rivera was a smart thinker in HS? Lol

With the salary cap you can't buy wins anymore because you will lack in other areas.

We are an example, sad to say.
