That's a good analogy. We were a Malcolm Butler INT away from sharing the throne after that SB. Give Seattle 2 championships, Brady stuck on 3 after a loss to the Hawks, (and his rings being more than a decade old at that point) and we are in a weird alternative history space. Who knows what happens the next 4 seasons, but the narrative would definitely have been a lot different.Yup. LOB kind of reminds me of the 2008-2012 Celtics in that they probably should have won multiple titles but injuries, bad luck, and other factors held them to 1.
It really just makes me appreciate this run even more. Seattle had all the pieces, but shit happens and it didn't go quite as planned. Meanwhile, we're left complaining about whether Edelman will be narrating Championship disc number 6, and ginning up outrage about the Philly Bowl preventing us from being the first ever 3x champs.
