I'm going to go ahead and start with 1996. From 97-2000 we went 4 years without a Patriots team in the SB. Now the real start of the dynasty, with the Brady and the Belichick, aka AirB&B… But this time for shlitz and giggles, it's all about how long we had to wait between SBs... We know that once from 2001-2004 we had to wait one year. Then in 05-06, we had to wait for TWO years. 07 was a SB appearance. Then we had to wait from 08-10, for THREE years between SBs. 11 was a SB appearance. Then we had to wait TWO MORE YEARS b/w SBs, '12-'13. 14 was a SB Win. 15, was a ONE-YEAR WAIT. 16 was a SB win. 17 was a SB appearance. 18 was a SB Win. So 2008-2010 was the last time we had to wait more than 2 years to see our team in the SB. The last time we had to wait multiple years for the Pats to be in the SB was '12-'13. By the way, we were in the championship games for those years, but I digress. Some of you guys remember NEVER having been in a SB, up until 1985. When we played again in 96, I was reasoning we were getting in every 10 years, better than most teams. It was just logical that most of the time you would not be in the SB. We've been in 4 out of the last 5. You have to go back to 08-10 to find 3 years' wait between SBs. God, I just want to find people in Jets gear, pull them off the street, and explain to them what that's like. But nobody wears Jets gear.
