Well, that could be restated as "Teams that performed well but the media didn't care because they weren't New England, Indianapolis or Terrell Owens."
East Coast biased media sucks.
Oh good lord quit whining (this also goes out to the two jesters that posted after continuing the whinfest.
Yes, the source of all of this is the ever-phantom east coast bias. It couldn't POSSIBLY be that New England has won three super bowls in 5 years, or that Indy had a dominating season with an offense that lights up the scoreboards (and hence draws attention), or that TO is always doing something to get himself in the news.
How many times did we hear the words USC, Reggie Bush, or Matt Leinart on ESPN this year? Is it because of some mythical west coast bias that I can just make up to solve all my inadequacies (which apparently include spelling) and get everyone to blindly roll along with? No, it's because they were a great team with a great offense. Was TO not still all over the news when he was in San Francisco (as far west as it gets)?
Good lord people I don't get riled up often on here but get the f*ck over it. The only bias against west coasters there is is people that don't want to hear them whine about how every statement other than "XXXX west coast team/player is the greatest team/player ever" (which by the way we've heard plenty of lately with USC/Bush/Leinart so I don't know how you people are STILL getting your panties in bunch) is obviously biased against their poor, persecuted souls.
Sure, Seattle wasn't getting the gobs of media attention down the stretch of the regular season the 3 time Super Bowl champs (in the last 4 years) and the consensus best team in the league were, but neither were the Steelers and last I checked they're now Super Bowl champs. I guess they should make up the "Quaker bias" so they can keep up with all the west coast clowns crying and moaning everytime they're not the center of the universe for perfectly legitimate reasons.
