Sybil's Back!

Shank's month long hiatus from his CNN / SI gig ended today.
Brace yourself, NFL. It looks like Bill Belichick plans to come back from the lockout with guns blazing.


Playoff failure is a sore subject in Foxborough these days. While putting together some pretty nifty regular-season records, the Pats haven't gone anywhere in the tournament. Fact is, they haven't won a playoff game since the 2007 AFC Championship Game. This means that 13 teams -- the Seahawks, Jets, Ravens, Packers, Steelers, Bears, Cowboys, Cardinals, Colts, Vikings, Eagles, Chargers and Giants have all won playoff games since the last time Belichick and Brady won a playoff game.
Safe to say there's some obvious 'sampling' from today's Globe column (see below)?

About the Sybil comparison - why does Shank lack the balls to rip the Patriots in the CNN / SI columns, as he's free to do in the Globe columns?

So Shank, is there something fundamentally wrong with the Patriots to explain why they have not won a playoff game since 2007?

The Bruins haven't won a playoff game since June! They must suck!
