So in 2003 we only beat one team with a winning record en route to a SB.

Recommended Posts

So I went and did some research. Below are the teams we faced in 2003 and the teams records that year in our SB season.

Jacksonville Jaguars (W) 5-11

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (W) 7-9

Atlanta Falcons (W) 5-11

New Orleans Saints (W) 8-8

Indianapolis Colts (W) 12-4

Tennessee Titans (L) 12-4

New Orleans Saints (W) 8-8

Houston Texans (L) 5-11

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (W) 7-9

Washington Redskins (W) 5-11

Dallas Cowboys (L) 10-6

Philadelphia Eagles (L) 12-4

Atlanta Falcons (L) 5-11

Arizona Cardinals (W) 4-12

Detroit Lions (W) 5-11

New York Giants (W) 4-12

So we were 1-3 against winning teams that season and the only win we had against a winning Colts team that year was just by 3 pts in OT. Our opponents total record for that year was 114-142. So what is my point to this thread? There is no such thing as the saying "but such and such team hasnt beat a real team" in the NFL. I dont give a fug if we go 16-0 and all 16 games we played against the Jaguars, wins are wins are wins period, end of story!

I remember that colts game. My god, the colts were so good then. Also, isn't that the fake punt titans game?

Except we will need to beat a winning team to even make the playoffs

You missed the point. The point is it doesn't matter who you play or how you play. A win is a win is a win. You get to the dance, anything is possible. You may get the girl, you may not, but at least you went.

I have never once heard of people say "well so and so only got to the SB because they played weak teams all season" that is BS all you have to do is play good enough to get into the tournament then it's anyone's game doesn't matter how you get in as long as you get in you can be 16-0 or 8-8 and still win the SB

 

BTW thanks for looking that up that should shut some people up only wish the people over at NFL.com and ESPN.com did research like you just did

Go 2-2 against SF, NE and NO then get wins against NYJ, Tampa, Atlanta and Miami for an 11-5 record and a wild card birth. If the two wins are against NO then it's a division title and the 3rd seed.

Win is a win no matter what. If we keep playing balanced football we could win the Div.

Very interesting, excellent find.

It makes me think of the Giants teams that won the Super Bowl with Eli and wonder how many losing teams they lost to as well, both times sneaking into the playoffs by the skin of their teeth.

The point was never that the wins don't count because we played crap teams. You beat who you are assigned on your schedule. The cheifs had an easy schedule but are considered to be near the top of the NFL.

The point is, we have to beat two winning teams at the very least to make the playoffs. So no, we are going nowhere until we beat a good team.
