Even the Seahawks who were the worse team to qualify for the playoffs, beat the 11-5 bears
The truth is, once the playoffs start you have no idea what will happen. I don't care what happened in the regular season, the playoffs are a much different matter.
CASE IN POINT: MARTY SCHOTTENHEIMER
Marty Schottenheimer was a great coach during the regular season. His teams consistently won 13+ games a year. The man knew how to get his team into the playoffs, but once he got there he CHOKED... The man did this so many times that he became synonymous with choking and got fired from the Chargers even after posting up another 13 win season, and to this day he can't get another job in the NFL has a headcoach because of this.
Please try to learn from the lesson of Marty... THE REGULAR SEASON MEANS NOTHING!
Just get to the playoffs however you can and fight your ass off once you get there and no matter what your record was or who you beat in the regular season you too can have Superbowl ring at the end of it...
