This has been a strange year for the NFL. Week after week we are seeing teams who "should" win, lose. And then those same teams turn around in games they "should" lose, and win. I know a lot of Finfans are down in the dumps right now, but 3-4 is by no means a death sentence.
You can't play this back-and-forth, X is better than Z because X beat Y and Y beat Z. That's just not the league this year. Apart from a few teams skewed in one direction (Denver, KC) or the other (Jax, Tampa), the league is evening out. The NFL media machine will fight this reality, because they have to hitch their star-worshipping wagon to the money for as long as they can. Old habits die hard, and no one will stop saying the Pats are the **** until their record shows they've stopped being the ****.
Refs aside, Fins made some egregious errors against New England. But I saw enough to believe that the ability is there to match up with almost any team in this league. People keep saying "It's Our Time." Well, ****. This year? It's EVERYone's time.
