Two Little Debbies and a cup of coffee
I heard the call in question. Francesa destroyed him, but I wouldve done worse.
First of all, most divisions only have 1 great team. Only the AFC West this season had two teams who were legit contenders. Thats why they were the only division with 2 teams in the divisional round.
The callers point was the pats had no other dominant coach and QB tandem to deal with. Where does this clown think all of these great QBs and coaches come from? There simply arent that many. It would be rare as hell for there to be 2 of them in the same division.
The phins had some pretty good teams in the Wrongstedt years while the pats were winning the division. The Jests had a good team once. Fact is, whatever division the Pats play in they are going to win it over the last decade or so. They have been one of the best teams in the league basically every year. Thats what happens when you have the best QB in the game. Just ask the phins. Youre a contender every year.
The whole notion that SBs have been handed to them because they get what the caller deemed to be an automatic playoff birth is ridiculous. They still have a great record vs. non division opponents and still had to go through Peyton Manning and others to get there.
