    You can sometimes say some teams seem like "a team of destiny". Which probably goes back to the topic of luck, not Andrew.

    Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. Sometimes you have plain, pure dumb luck, but most times, what we might consider to be luck is really preparation meeting opportunity.

    While DeSean Jackson's infamous punt return, followed by Detroit beating Tampa Bay to win their first road game in years in 2010 were dumb lucky breaks for us, the fact is we set ourselves up and gave ourselves a chance to take advantage of the opportunity provided to us. We were given the opportunity to secure a playoff spot, provided we could finish the season with 3 straight wins, and we took it and capitalized on it. You can say it was luck all you want, but luck doesn't help us if we're not in a position to do something with the opportunity.

    The defense had tons in injuries....from the Patriots game on. The system was too complex for 3rd stringers. They got healthy at right time. They simplified the system too.
