"Every single team is better, except for the teams that I don't like."
At the moment, that's the major storyline on every talk radio station and message board in every single NFL city. "New" equals "better" in the minds of fans, because it has to in order to keep them going. Fans of bad teams need to believe they're ready to go from worst to first. Fans of good teams need to believe they will stay up there.
It's this dynamic that keeps the NFL rolling through the offseason. It's a long time period, and the absence of the game many of us love makes it seem even longer. However, the incremental bursts of seeming improvement keep fans coming back for more.
It can't all be true, though. Some teams just have to get worse, while others will stay stagnate. After all, general managers make mistakes, coaches lose the message, players come back out of shape, injuries happen and chemistry fades.
It's the NFL's own little form of entropy, and everyone fights against it. Unfortunately, not everybody wins.
