Reasons for optimism.


 History shows that 0-2 teams advance to the playoffs more often than people might think. Since 1990, 22 teams have started 0-2 and still qualified for the postseason, including three teams last year - Miami, Minnesota and San Diego. The 2007 New York Giants started 0-2 but rebounded to win Super Bowl XLII, joining the 1993 Dallas Cowboys and 2001 New England Patriots as teams since 1990 to win the Super Bowl after an 0-2 start. Hope is alive in the unpredictable NFL. -- NFL


Since realignment in 2002, 48 of the 84 playoff teams (57.1 percent) began the year at either 1-1 or 0-2. Four of the past eight Super Bowl champions began their seasons with a 1-1 or 0-2 record. -- NFL

I just wanted share these two stats with everyone. Hopefully we can be one of those teams who turns an 0-2 start into a Super Bowl run.
