London Fletcher used to think that this playoff thing was pretty easy. He broke in with the Rams in 1998 and the next year The Greatest Show on Turf exploded onto the NFL scene and he was a starting linebacker for a Super Bowl champion. Two years later he Rams looked set to win it all again, but they were upset by Tom Brady and the Patriots. It looked to Fletcher like postseason appearances would be a common occurrence in his career.
