Breaking the Super Bowl Champions curse.

Every Super Bowl Champion has either failed to make the playoffs or gone one done since the Steelers won Super Bowl XL

2005 Steelers did not make the 2006 playoffs

2006 Colts lost to the Chargers in their first playoff game in 2007

2007 Giants lost to the Eagles in their first playoff game in 2008

2008 Steelers did not make the 2009 playoffs

2009 Saints lost their first playoff game to the Seahawks in 2010

2010 Packers lost their first playoff game to the Giants in 2011.

I think the losers actually have it worse. I would have bet my life on the Patriots bucking that trend after the Giants beat them the first time, but low and behold Brady gets knocked out week 1 and the Patriots miss the playoffs.

Seeing how Giants play the way they do in the regular season, it's very possible that they'll be coming into the playoffs with another low playoff spot. but if they face the saints, niners, or packers at home, they may fall to this curse as well

That used to be if you lost the Super Bowl you didn't make the playoffs. Seahawks broke that after Super Bowl XL going to the playoffs and winning a playoff game. Since then the Cardinals, Colts, and Steelers have all gone to the playoffs after losing the Super Bowl and the Cardinals also won a playoff game. The Colts and Steelers both went one and done though so it all depends on how you look at it.

    • My guess is the season starts in October, training camp in August. This of course is at the earliest. IF they were to cancel the season, my guess would be contracts would be treated as if the players retired. Or in other words, basically the contracts would be paused.  
    • We are close. In another thread a week ago I was saying 2 years for 26 Mill. I would pay him 13 mill a year. I wouldn't go higher than that. He is good but not great.
    • Round 2a - #34 A-Denzel Mims, WR B- Cole Kmet, TE C- Trevon Diggs, CB Round 2b - #44 A-Jeremy Chinn, SS B- Ezra Cleveland, OT C- Michael Pittman, WR Round 3 - #75 A- Jordan Elliott, DT B- Bryan Edwards, WR C- A.J. Dillon, RB   Round 4 - #122 A- DaVon Hamilton, DT B- Michael Ojemudia, CB C- Albert O, TE   Round 5 - #160 A- Bryce Hall, CB B- Julian Owkara, Edge C- James Morgan, QB   Round 6a - #193 A- JR Reed SS B- Jake Lutton, QB  C- Van Jefferson, WR   Round 6b A- JR Reed, SS B- Jordan Love, QB C- Damien Lewis, OG
    • Yeah that game was nuts! I thought for sure it would be us vs you guys for the AFC Title. That would've been tough for the Colts to win at SD. We were 10-0 at home that season counting the playoffs so I didn't mind seeing Tom and BB for once. I was still rooting against them when you guys played them because I always root against them 
    • Beyond that, it's probably pointless to go all in on this season.  The draft and everything is a nice diversion, but the idea of any kind of normal football season taking place is pure fantasy, I'm afraid to say.  They're digging mass graves in New York, yet the Jets and Giants will be out at training camp in a few months?     Additionally, what will the protocol be when players get sick?  The flu spreads through locker rooms every year.  Once coronavirus inevitably hits a team's locker room or facility, what happens?  Is everyone in isolation?  Is that team off the schedule?  Until there is a medical breakthrough, I have a hard time seeing it.
