    No not at all; I'm saying it took an outside force beyond their natural capabilities to cross a particular threshhold.

    but that's not true, we got a break and took advantage which is what good teams do. It is what Miami did for their lone playoff app since 2002 and they got even more breaks. They followed up that season w/ another title game app the next year proving 2009 was not a fluke.

    Not true.. no (at best) true 8-8 teams that season would have made the playoffs... especially ones who beat opponents with a cumulative sub .400 winning % and had recently lost 6 out of 7.

    But then again, we're arguing about who's the bigger loser, so while it's all relative, unless you at least win a conference championship, close only counts in horseshoes

    we lost 6 of 7 midseason, we won 5 of our last 6 games and 3 of 4 heading into that Indy game.

    In 2008 you had no Brady and an easier sched.


    our 9 wins in 2009 came against teams w/ a 73-71 record, 51% and 3 playoff bound teams

    your 2008 11 wins came against teams w/ a 63-97 record, 39% and 1 playoff bound team that was 8-8

    factor in no Brady and the Favre choke and your road was MUCH easier.

    I wouldn't call it a fluke but I'd wonder why they haven't had a winning record since then...

    you're counting the scrubs for Cinci and Indy (14 of those "wins") who both conceded the games as "meaningless" in your winning percentage, and season close out stats? C'mon now. How about the 7 wins before the two that were scrub gift-wrapped? I believe the only team you beat that had a winning record who was actually trying to win was Houston and that was the first game.

    We actually won a division with 3 teams going 9 wins or better and NE actually winning 1 more game without Brady than they did the following year with Brady. We also orchestrated the greatest turnaround in the history of the NFL.

    we have only had one losing record since then too.

    let's take out Indy and the win % is still greater, Cincy played starters for a half and the score was 27-0, we then whipped them in Cincy 6 days later.

    we beat Houston on the road in the opener, if Hou wins that game they would have made the playoffs. We also beat New England.

    we had 3 teams w/ 9 wins b/c the sched was a creampuff. Our 2009 team was a million times better than 2008 but had the same record. How come you discount the Jets against Indy and Cincy but don't do the same for NE in week 17? they rested players, they didn't need the game or they would have had 11 wins against a tougher sched than 2008.
