Squawking in the playoffs

On Saturday the Seahawks not only covered the double-digit point spread but won the game outright. While everyone dismissed a 7-9 team as unworthy to be in the playoffs because other teams with better records failed to make it (and that still may be justified), the real reason people don't want such a team in the playoffs now has been revealed: That team just might shock everyone and play inspired—probably because being a 10.5 point underdog at home in the post-season puts quite a chip on your shoulder. And it really makes the team that loses look really bad.

Is not the only thing worse than being the "worst" team in post-season history being the team who lost to that team?
