Think about how close we are to being 11-1 and sitting pretty for the #1 seed right now. Life would be so much less stressful, and we wouldn't have to worry about what other teams are doing and who we need to lose.
The flipside is that Green Bay, New England, and Chicago all could have easily been losses, and even so a 9-4 is so much better than an 8-5 right now. It just kills me knowing that we probably won't get that first round by despite being so close.
I'm not too bummed, in fact, sounds stupid but I'd rather be 8-5 the way we are than 9-4 in the scenario you write about.
We've proven we can hang with the big guys and get wins, which stands us in far better stead for the play-offs, cause they're the sort of teams we'll face. Psychologically it's pretty huge too.
