Curse of the Super Bowl Hosts

I first made a Fan Shot about this - but for some reasons things vanish into the abyss when you create a fanshot so here's the post version.

SB Year Host Outcome
2013 Giants 7-9 =We're still trying to figure out why
2012 Saints 7-9 = Bounty Scandal -Coach suspended
2011 Colts 2-14 = (Peyton out for season)
2010 Cowboys 6-10 =Bad year even for them
2009 Dolphins 7-9 = This year doesn't stand out for them
2008 Bucs 9-7 = Winning season but still miss playoff
2007 Cards 8-8= Doesn't stand out
2006 Dolphins 6-10 = Doesn't stand out
2005 Lions 5-11 = Doesn't stand out
2004 Jags 9-7 = Winning season but still miss playoff
2003 Texans 5-11=Doesn't stand out
2002 Chargers 8-8= Doesn't stand out
2001 Saints 7-9= Doesn't stand out
2000 Bucs 10-6 = 1 and done in playoffs
1999 Falcons 5-11= Doesn't stand out
1998 Dolphins 11-5 = They made it to 2nd round

I dug up this information during the summer but didn't want to post this until the season was over... Had the Giants made it to the playoffs I don't know if I would of posted this yet. If you enjoy those budlight NFL superstitious commercials as much as I do then surely you can appreciate this fanposts... Obviously its very hard to win a Super Bowl so the fact that no one has won it the year they host isn't some crazy mythical power behind it but it is fun to note some catastrophic event or unexplainable bad year that took place for some teams that hosted that same year... It almost seems like the teams are destined to not even make the play offs :-)

I wanted to create links for each team that would show you what they're average winning percentage was within a 10 year range from the time that they hosted but really who cares this is just poking fun at us: superstitious fans.
