Boy ain't that the pot calling the kettle black? How many times have you guys choked in the playoffs the past decade?

Against an 8-8 team? Never.

Regular season records mean nothing in the playoffs. Whole different situation.

Let's examine that.

Superbowl winners with 8 losses? 0
Superbowl winners with 7 losses? 0
6 losses? 3
5 losses? 3
4 losses? 11
3 losses? 11
2 losses? 12
1 loss? 4
0 losses? 1

Noticing a trend here? See how it isn't a random distribution, but skewed towards teams with 4 or fewer losses? Yea, regular season records are actually a great indicator of post season success.

Also, 4 whole 8-8 teams made it to the divisional round in the history of the superbowl. Of course, one of those 4 was the 1985 Browns, who had a bye week during the wildcard round, so they were one and done in the playoffs. So yea, regular season record tends to at least predict post season success. 66% of 8-8 teams that make the playoffs go one and done.

EDIT: Not trying to rub it in, just pointing to a few numbers that contradict your opinion.

Lots of time to drool over Baltimore male cheerleaders now that you don't have to watch any more pesky playoff games, eh?

Well in my opinion they're not. Regular season records determine playoff seeding and whether or not a team wins it's respective division which again has to do with playoff seeding. Once the playoffs role around it's no holds barred. Teams break open the playbooks and it's all or nothing. Look at the Cardinals and their route to Super Bowl 43. How about last year when the Saints got knocked off by Seattle? This year we got beat by Denver.

Yea, I would say the Saints dropped one to an inferior team-- huge failure on their part. We did the same thing earlier in the season, difference being it wasn't in the post season--still a huge failure, but not choking in the post season. I would say the exact same thing about the Steelers. You dropped one to an inferior team--huge post season failure, one I do not hope to repeat, which is where this argument started. My prediction is the Bronco's mediocrity catches up with them in Foxborough.

Thank you! I've got absolutely nothing against gay people, I don't see why it's even an issue with some people. But there is one thing that should transcend any rivalry, and that is the agreement that male cheerleaders in football is a little odd.
