Not if that same team had a Highschool Offense which is not good since the competition gets better the further they go.

You know whats almost more impressive though?

17 straight seasons of NOT making the playoffs AT ALL

I mean the Bills record of futility is absolutely EPIC, you almost have to TRY to be that bad, even the Cleveland Browns have been to the Playoffs more recently than the Bills.

Of course this is the same team that went to 4 straight Superbowls and managed to lose ALL OF THEM

I would assume a team making 4 straight Superbowls would win at least 2 of them at minimum

I hear same thing from people telling me when season is over about Packers wasting Rodgers, how they always fail, one and done, I've heard it all. However, some of them support teams year in and year out, that haven't been to the playoffs in years.

I'll take trips to playoffs 8 years in a row (Pats & Pack) and a SB win in that time frame, over never making the playoffs.

I wouldn't expect them to play two 'bad' games in a row.

LOL. Jeez, hate to see what you are like when the pats lose. It's all good. Good teams come and go. Pats were never really on the radar before Brady and Belicheck. Enjoy it while it lasts rather than attack a poster of another team who is routinely on your side of arguments favoring Brady as a GOAT.

There is truth to that though. Look at Marino. Damn good player but only one super bowl appearance. We're talking Dan Marino. A legend. One of the best EVER. Rodgers is already one of the best ever and it will 100% be a shame if he only makes it to ONE super bowl in his career. Don't let the my Bills or even the Browns be the barometer of failure and success.
