Default Quality of Wins - Not Important

Don't expect perfection. When you see games like Buffalo that didn't turn out to be as big a win as everyone expected, or tight games against inferior teams like OT victories vs the Jags & Lions it creates seeds of doubt. We all know that teams can win the Superbowl as a wildcard team. The Giants just won the Superbowl after a 9-7 regular season. That's 7 turds they laid. Plus...5 of their WINS were by 4 points or less. Not very impressive. Even teams that win 14+ in the regular season like the Colts in 2009 have some close games. They went 14-0 and sat players for the final 2 games (they lost both). Here's the scores of those 14 Colts wins:

Jags - 14-12
@ Dolphins - 27-23
@ Cards - 31-10
Seahawks - 34-17
@ Titans - 31-9
@ Rams - 42-6
49ers - 18-14
Texans - 20-17
Pats - 35-34
@ Ravens - 17-15
@ Texans - 35-27
Titans - 27-17
Broncos - 28-16
@ Jags - 35-31

Sure, that schedule didn't have many creampuffs on it but there also were 8 one score wins. Not exactly dominating. Other than the 16-0 2007 Patriots (who lost the SB) there hasn't been a team that dominates week after week in the regular season. The NFL is too difficult.

Bad teams beat themselves. Good teams find ways to win. We finally have a team that is a true contender. The NFL regular season record is only used to set up the playoffs.

Bottom line is: All we should care about is the Texans going on a 3 game win streak in the playoffs and returning from from New Orleans with a silver trophy with a football on top.
