If Oakland defeats Baltimore next weekend, KC will join Seattle as the only AFCW losers to have not made an appearance in the SB over the past 10 years.
I think the fans of KC deserve a SB appearance more than any other AFCW group. I'm starting to think we'll NEVER get there - we're all just wasting our time cheering for a losing cause. Getting really, <i>really</i> sick and tired of medicore shit football.

Relax. Baltimore will murder the raiders.

Did you not watch the Raiders dismantle Miami yesterday? The Phins are just like Baltimore: great D, good Special Teams, solid running game, NO QB! If it weren't for a worthless fuggin' kicker and one mistake (George missing a pass that hit him right in the hands), Baltimore most likely would not have won.
The Raiders are going to win the SuperBowl. I don't know if I can handle that...

only if Ray Lewis's "buddies" show up.

I can't believe that you are saying that the INT by Lewis was the deciding play. The Titans still would have had to score twice to win. And Del greco sure was looking sharp. And to compare Miami's D to baltimores is just plain stupid. Oakland will not be able to run the ball, and the Dink and Dunk will play right into Baltimore's hands.
And the last time I checked, the best TEAM won the superbowl, not the best offense, or the best defense. And, I believe, if you add all 3, the Ravens come out on top.
Note to Ravens: Beware of the batteries
I simply cannot stand the F%^#@$! Raiders.

Baltimore has an offense?
01-07-2001, 02:32 PM
Not to worry, jq. Ray's bringing 10 of his "buddies". Gannon won't last a half.

<i>And to compare Miami's D to baltimores is just plain stupid</i> - actually, it's not. Miami had one helluva stingy defense this season - as a matter of fact, that was pretty much <i>all</i> they had going for them. They managed to win a lot of games - in a MUCH tougher division, thanks to that D.
<i>I can't believe that you are saying that the INT by Lewis was the deciding play</i> - actually, I never said it was <i>the</i> deciding play - it definitely was the last nail though! The momentum turned in Baltimore's favor thanks to horrible kicking by Del Greco (worthless bag of shit)... gawd, <i><b>I HATE KICKERS!!!</i></b> After the blocked kick return, I could see the Titans deflate; the INT sealed it. Before those two plays, I thought Tennessee was winning the war of attrition.

5. Chicago (1994)
San Diego (1994)
8. Buffalo (1995)
10. Carolina (1996)

AJ - I stand corrected. Thanks :)

No problem, HC...
In fact, here are the list of teams with a current playoff losing streak of at least 2 games in a row.
1. Detroit: 6 games
2. Indianapolis: 4 games
Buffalo: 4 games
Seattle: 4 games
Kansas City: 4 games
6. Dallas: 3 games
7. New England: 2 games
Tennessee: 2 games
San Diego: 2 games
Tampa Bay: 2 games
Green Bay: 2 games

Geez AJ, that is depressing.

It is... but three things to take from that stat:
1. Lions fans really have been through some rough times. Their losing streak began in the 1991 NFC Championship game at Washington (41-10 loss) and have been bounced out in the 1st Round the other 5 times since. That doesn't even take into consideration their loss at home vs the Bears this year to wipe them out from the dance this year...
2. That loss to the Colts 10-7 in the playoffs still scars us Chiefs fans and will continue to do so forever... but that it is the last win by the Colts in the playoffs. Starting the following week with that memorable 20-16 loss to the Steelers in the AFC Championship, the Colts now have a losing streak equal to that of the Chiefs. Nothing to be proud about... but I found that interesting.
3. Buffalo has a current 4 game playoff losing streak to match the 4 game Super Bowl losing streak they have (the streaks are unrelated by the way)

With the Giants win over Philadelphia, that makes 13 straight years a # 1 seed from the NFC has advanced to the NFC Championship Game. The last # 1 NFC seed to lose in the Divisional Playoff was the 1987 49ers, who lost to the Minnesota Vikings. In 11 of those 13 previous seasons, the # 2 seed in the NFC has met the # 1 seed in the NFC Championship, including this year (Exceptions: 1989 Rams & 1995 Packers). In the past 10 meetings, the #1 seed and # 2 seed have won 5 games each.
On the AFC side of the field, the loss by the # 1 seed Tennessee Titans makes it 4 out of the past 6 seasons the # 1 seed from the AFC has been bounced out in the Divisional Playoff. Only the 1998 Broncos & 1999 Jaguars (both winning over 2nd Round punching bag Miami) have advanced as the # 1 seed. In fact, since 1992 there have been more # 4 seeds who advanced to the Super Bowl (1992 Bills, 1997 Broncos, 1999 Titans) than # 1 seeds (only the 1993 Bills & 1998 Broncos). The other times (1994 Chargers, 1995 Steelers, 1996 Patriots) the AFC was won by # 2 seeds. (The 1999 Colts are the only # 2 seed since 1994 not to advance to the AFC Championship). The # 4 seed in the AFC has defeated the # 2 seed at least the past three times in the playoffs (1999 Titans over Colts - DIVISIONAL, 1997 Broncos over Steelers AFC Championship, 1992 Bills over Dolphins AFC Championship). So there is a stat favoring the Ravens entering next week's AFC Championship Game, however meaningless that may be...
