Starting the season 0-2 used to be the death knell of a football season (yes, I know there are teams who have come back from 0-2 to win the Super Bowl including your New York Football Giants in 2007), but it has always been a barometer of impending doom to a season.
I believe from 2002-2018 14 of 133 teams that started 0-2 have made the playoffs, which is 11 percent. Coincidentally, the one season since the start of the 2013 season that we did not got 0-2 is 2016; and, of course, we made the playoffs.
I know many people on here, including myself, do not think the playoffs are realistic this season. I know there is an extra playoff spot this season which make the stats I cited a little less daunting. But, what I want is a competitive season and I would love for a small move in the right direction to come out and win this football game on Sunday. I also think we can do it.
