From Masson in the diaries:

Just to make myself feel better, and not because it means anything, particularly, I thought I'd see how many wins San Diego's opponents had and figure out the average number of wins by teams beaten by San Diego. Then I did the same for the Colts.

For what it's worth, San Diego's 12 opponents have a total of 64 victories. The 10 opponents beaten by San Diego have a total of 48 victories. Therefore, the teams San Diego has beaten, on average, have 4.8 wins.

Indy's 12 opponents have a total of 73 victories. The 10 opponents beaten by Indy have a total of 60 victories. Therefore, the teams Indy has beaten, on average, have 6 wins.

There is no one team that is dominant in the NFL. LLast year, the Colts dominated the regular season only to lose in the playoffs to the eventual Super Bowl champion Steelers. The years before that were dominated by the Patriots. This year, there is no clear "favorite." All teams have significant, glaring weaknesses and/or questions.

This is parity folks.
