Team’s record getting you down? Take heart, football lovers. So many good teams are 0-2 right now, it’s almost en vogue. It gives you reason for optimism, right?
Well, pump the brakes, sports fans. Chances are that your team will not be making the playoffs. In fact, teams that are 0-2 after the first two games have historically only made the post season 11% of the time.
This year’s slate, however, is chock full of top-rated squads like the Colts, Seahawks, Ravens, Saints and Eagles, along with question mark clubs like the Bears, Lions, Texans, and Giants.
Shockingly, the Jaguars, Browns, Raiders and other perennial bottom feeders are not 0-2, and the Ryan Fitzpatrick-led Jets are 2-0 and looking solid. So…football is football and that’s why we love it. Parity rules the league and 0-2 is no cause for alarm.
Still, I will be bringing my secret weapon to Tennessee this Sunday to cheer for my Colts, in the form of a cute eight year old boy who I guarantee knows more about football than you.
