First edge to the Pats.

They were the home team and elected against wearing the traditional blue uniforms because they'd make it too hard for Brady to pick up receivers - the eight-foot wall around the stadium is dark blue w/ purple. Pats elect to wear white road uniform to make it easier to see their guys on offense.

Except it hasn't worked in the AFC. Hasn't it been the Pats, Steelers, or Broncos representing the AFC in an inordinately weird amount of SBs over the last 15-20 years?

12 out of the last 16. Parity is a myth in the AFC, and certainly the AFC East.

I didn’t say it was working, but it’s been the goal of the NFL. In the Pats case, there have been multiple instances of the league changing rules specifically to make things harder for them.

My favorite being when Polian cried about Colts receivers' lack of success vs. Pats DBs they changed the coverage rules to make it easier for Manning's receivers to get open.

Or when they banned jumping over the lines on FG block because the Patriots had a player that could actually do it.

Or when the NFL changed the ineligible/eligible receiver rule after the Pats tricked the Ravens and embarrassed Coach Harbaugh on three plays in a playoff game.
