We are guaranteed to win this year, because this season now follows in the same pattern as our other superbowl-winning seasons: Acquire an older, superbowl-hungry veteran, and also have a controversy with one of our stars. (Year - Superbowl Hungry Vet, and Star Controversy) 2001 - Phifer/Cox, and Bledsoe. 2003 - Harrison, and Milloy. 2004 - Dillon, and Law. 2006 - Seau, and Branch. Take it to the bank! I wonder if there is some sort of explanation for this. Does it make the team band together more? Does it make them mentally tougher? Does it help them focus more on the field with so many off the field distractions? .
