So in 2003 we only beat one team with a winning record en route to a SB.

Like I've said before, I'd rather beat losing teams and go to the playoffs than beat a couple of winning teams but go 7-9

You missed the point. The point is it doesn't matter who you play or how you play. A win is a win is a win. You get to the dance, anything is possible. You may get the girl, you may not, but at least you went.

The point was never that the wins don't count because we played crap teams. You beat who you are assigned on your schedule. The cheifs had an easy schedule but are considered to be near the top of the NFL.

The point is, we have to beat two winning teams at the very least to make the playoffs. So no, we are going nowhere until we beat a good team.

So if we lose to a very good 9ers team, no need to panic. We will still be over .500 and as much as it will hurt, it will be understandable

Who'd a thunk all those Playoff games we won were against teams with losing records.....

The only reason TB and NO had losing records that year (ok, not the only reason, but a part of it) was because we swept them

Winning helps build confidence and morale

That same confidence and morale is what helps keep players mentally in check. Of course you have to outsmart and outplay your opponent, but until you get the yips out you aren't going anywhere.

This easy stretch may have helped set us up for future success down the road. The momentum from the 2003 season led us to beat some really good teams in January (in many different ways), and it carried over into 2005 when the panthers were reeling off six game winning streaks. Even Chris Weinke led a game winning drive against Detroit that year

It's important to repeat this over and over.. Like the grand canyon, eventually you'll erode deep and vast negativity out of your life..

Yep. Beat the colts then drop one in OT to the redskins.
