How To Decide the Best Team in the League - A Refresher

I keep reading people saying that they think X team (their favorite team) is a better team than the Giants this past year.

I just have to ask: how do they measure that?

I just find it endlessly amusing that so many fans cite some unarticulated criteria of their own to judge who is or is not a better team.

If the criteria are not measured by on the field performance and results, what are they but speculative fantasies?

Let me break it down for everyone. This will just take a minute.

In the NFL team results are not measured by stats but by wins and losses. And because schedules are not all equal across the league, there’s a tournament at the end to decide who is the best.

It’s not complicated.

And that’s why all this other stuff from some fan bases (you know who you are) is so entertaining. It's comedy gold because it’s silly, churlish and - most of all - immune to reason.

So, here's an open call for arguments. For those of you who think your team or some other team was better than the New York Football Giants in 2011-2012, what are your criteria for making that judgment. . .besides what teams or players you like, I mean?

Please share your work with the class. Bonus comedy points for remarks about the looks on Eli's face.
