    Does Volek rhyme with Zolak? Just kidding, just trying to show some disprespect. :D

    But I do have a more ominous observation to offer...

    In 2004 the Pittsburgh Steelers were poised to finally win a Super Bowl in the Cowher era (at least, in the eyes of their fans) with a breakthrough season which, record wise, would have topped any of those by the 70s dynasty. But they peetered out by year's end, losing the AFC championship to the Pats. However, a year later, after Roethlisburgh and his team complete a less stellar, working man's season, they finally do with the Super Bowl.

    In 2005 the Indianapolis Colts were poised to finally win a Super Bowl in the Dungy era (at least, in the eyes of their fans) with a breakthrough season which saw them threaten to go undefeated. But they peetered out by year's end, losing an AFC divisional match to those same Steelers. However, a year later, after Manning and his team complete a less stellar, working man's season, they finally do with the Super Bowl.

    In 2006 the San Diego Chargers were poised to finally win a Super Bowl in the Shottemheimer era (at least, in the eyes of their fans) with a breakthrough season which saw them post their best regular season ever. But they peetered out by year's end, losing an AFC divisional match to the dreaded Patriots. However, a year later, after Rivers and his team complete a less stellar, working man's season... YIKES! :eek:

    The Pats just gotta break that trend!

    Even worse, only one other time has a football team from SD met a team named "The Patriots" in a championship game of any kind. The result?

    Or you may consider the fact that the Pats were in a position to avenge the 1985 Superbowl beating by the Bears last year and had that second half meltdown against the Colts. This year, the Packers, the only other team to beat New England in the 1996 Superbowl, is the likely opponent. Coincidence?

    Sorry, I can't even feign concern. The Pats will once again mock the Merriman dance in victory. Norv Turner is happy just to walk away with his playoff victories to date.
