I really don't believe there's a fix on....but still....it is uncanny how things have gone for the Super Bowl host team in recent years. The 2000 season was the last time a Super Bowl host team even MADE THE PLAY-OFFS. The law of averages says whoa...
2000 @ Tampa, The Bucs get in as a wild-card.
Now, from 2001-2010, I think it's reasonable to say that there weren't legit Super Bowl contenders in the list
01 - New Orleans (7-9)
02 - San Diego (8-8)
03 - Houston (5-11)
04 - Jax (9-7)
05 - Detroit (5-11)
06 - Miami (6-10)
07 - Arizona (8-8)
09 - Miami (7-9)
In 2010, the game was in Dallas, and I recall there being a lot of "this could be the year". Then Dallas got off to a horrible start and could not recover, finishing 6-10.
In 2011, The Colts could have been a contender, but then.....Peyton gets hurt, out for the year, Colts go 2-14.
In 2012, The Saints could have been a contender, but then Bounty-gate took care of that, 7-9.
Now here in 2013, The Giants off to an 0-3 and staring at 0-4, as bad as the NFC East is, I don't think they get out of the hole. I had actually pegged them as 3-13 this year because of the whole Super Bowl thing. Of course there's the Jets...and although they have fared better then Big Blue, I don't see them getting past Denver, New England, Houston, and Baltimore.
With next year being in Arizona, it's not looking too good then either.
