History Lesson

Team A goes on the road to play team B, which is a non-division conference foe. Team A is by all measures considerably better than team B, but lays an egg in team B's home stadium, and barely eeks out a win.

Team A then goes on the road to play team C, a division foe. Team A is by all measures considerably better than team C, and absolutely destroys them in their own stadium, winning by 4 scores.

Team A then comes to their home stadium, plays a nationally televised night-time game against non-division non-conference foe under the bright lights against team D, which is considered to be a franchise that is among the best ever, certainly by almost every measure one of the best of the past 10 years, and a fan favorite nationwide. Team A proceeds to embarrass team D in front of a cable television network record audience.

------------------------------------------------------------

Why do I put this up, well...let's give teams A, B, C, and D names:

A: New Orleans Saints
B: St. Louis Rams
C: Tampa Bay Bucs
D: New England Patriots

...wait...there's more...look at THIS line up:

A: New Orleans Saints
B: Washington Redskins
C: Atlanta Falcons
D: Dallas Cowboys

...hmm...


"Those who fail to understand history are doomed to repeat it." - Georges Santayana

...bottom line: Saints looked like dog poop against St. Louis, they looked like the same dog poop against Washington, both teams they should have pancaked on paper.

They followed the St. Louis embarrassment with a thrashing of Tampa, in Tampa, then a similar game against the Patriots.

It all lines up the same way again, almost eerily so.

...anyone want to be the team that's either "C" or "D" in the next 2 weeks????
