Plus, consider a little bit of this
for the AFC, then consider a little bit of that
for the NFC, and in an era where stats serve two purposes . . . helping everyone make more sense of it all plus
making a ton of sporting action pretty fucking predictable, consider that by these numbers, there's some major crow that Steelers fans may actually be missing, if one was a Steelers fan, and one was trying to make their case, if one believed in SOS, given the fact that the Steelers just beat all three top seeds.
Personally, I don't care as much for SOS, but what it still looks like, to me . . . a perfect fucking storm in massive favor of the Steelers.
Anyone who said they should have done this, including Steelers fans, is literally defying the odds.
I can't help but get suspicious, mighty suspicious, even
, not at the lack of dominance of the three top AFC seeds . . . not at the likely dominance, by the recent results, of the Steelers . . . not even down, in fact, on the Seahawks . . . more like, I'm wondering what the hell happened to the other teams
more than I am wondering anything else.
I'm starting to wonder if this Steelers run, merely, is a giant batch of wonderful dumb luck.
When I say they'd have to win 10 more championships (either team, or the Lions, or whoever), I'm not saying it just because I hate 'em. That part of it's a giant embellishment.
I am, however, completely not
in favor of this 2005 Steelers team, and I think their SB XL appearance is harmful
to the vision of all fans
, not just the delusional Pittsburgh homers.
I do think, however, Vegas has the right team favored, considering the general nonsensical outcome of the 2005 NFL Playoffs.
