Article by Sam Farmerdiscussing Super Bowl champions and what kind of end of season momentum they had going into the playoffs.He found that 7 of the last 8 Super Bowl champs had let downs in the last two months of the season:
Curious to hear people's thoughts on whether they agree with this, and how much.So mark this down: Losing at the end of the regular season can be a good thing.That's what the champion Baltimore Ravens did, dropping four of their last five games this season before igniting in the playoffs and knocking off Indianapolis, Denver, New England and finally San Francisco in Super Bowl XLVII.And the Ravens were traveling a well-worn path. The 2011 New York Giants won it all after losing four games in a row in November and December. The 2010 Green Bay Packers lost three of four down the stretch. The 2009 New Orleans Saints lost their last three in the regular season. The 2007 Giants were 4-4 over a November-December stretch. The 2006 Indianapolis Colts lost four of their last seven. And the 2005 Pittsburgh Steelers had a three-game losing streak during November and December.
