    This is for teams above 500 (winning records)
    11/27 .289

    To break it down further:

    Division: 4/8 .333
    AFC not in Division: 5/12 .294
    NFC 2/7 .222

    This does not include this season or playoffs.

    One of my favorite quotes from Kong: Skull Island fits your post perfectly: "You know, that actually explains a lot."

    After week 3, here are the AFC South standings

    Texans 2-1
    Colts 2-1
    Jaguars 1-2
    Titans 1-2

    The AFC South Division standings

    Texans 1-0
    Jaguars 1-1
    Colts 1-0
    Titans 0-2

    Now on to week 4 and what could transpire this week.

    The Texans take on the Panthers at home.
    The Texans should be able to handle business in this one and come away with win #3.
    Texans 3-1

    The Raiders will be in Indianapolis to take on the Colts.
    Jacoby will be without TY Hilton. He'll still get it done.
    Colts 3-1

    The Jaguars go to Denver to take on the Broncos.
    The Jaguars will have a tough go of it at Mile High.
    Jaguars 1-3

    The Titans will be in Atlanta to take on the Falcons.
    Atlanta will break through and get a win.
    Titans 1-3

    So after week 4, the record could look like this:

    Texans 3-1
    Colts 3-1
    Titans 1-3
    Jaguars 1-3

    Since there are no divisional games, the division record won't change.

    I think the Jags beat the Broncos. They are Broncos in name only. Their defense is not what we have been used to

    I agree …. the Bronco's are just bad , total rebuild required.

    I kinda like Menshew too .... not saying he's great , just like how he approaches the game. Has that ability to forget about a bad play and move on.

    So, essentially a smidge above .500 overall or mediocre.

    I think a little context is important.

    In the Belichick era, the Patriots are 75-35 against teams who ended with a winning record. That's .625. And that is insane.

    The next highest team over that period is the Steelers who are at .440.

    O'Brien's 0.289 number includes years with [Name Redacted] and Ryan Mallet as his QB. That number is bad and needs to improve, but if he raises that number to 0.45, we'll be a top echelon team.

    I wish people would stop trying to use excuses to validate their point. Especially when dude hand picked those type of players to be his starting quarterbacks. So make the skit work.

    I don't agree with that.

    That's comparison is just too wide scoped.

    Comparing NE , who's won 6 Superbowls and 12 AFC Championship game appearances to any other team over that span is just flawed. (Normal) Teams just don't stay that good that long ….

    I think you have to break it down further - Pittsburg won two Superbowls with their current QB , the only QB in the league other than Brady & Eli to have won multiples and haven't been "Elite" for the duration. They've had ups and downs like other teams despite having a quality QB.

    You really have to look at each season independently or at most a 2-3 year span with "Normal teams".

    NE's sustained success may be what the world is shooting for but its really an unrealistic comparison.

    The elite teams change over a 2-3 year span …. Better to look at those individual seasons teams are in the conference title game as a comparison for what elite is.

    That's a great point. Those numbers aren't as readily available, but I'll see what I can do.

    I didn't cherry picked ****. You tried to use a lame ash excuse to validate why Bill O'Brien stat is 0.289. Bwhahaha he hand picked those two because they were familiar with the system he wanted to employ.

    Yeah, you're right. I was excusing him because of the QBs he had to work with. I was all, his numbers are great! He's a great coach! We should make him coach for life, gm for life, he's the next Belichick... Blah blah blah. That's your straw man.

    No, I said that number is BAD and needs to improve. I wasn't excusing anyone. I was merely setting expectations.
