Earn a postseason berth, great. Now the table is set to actually accomplish something. Win a playoff game and do something that hasn't been done since 1990. Progress is now being made. Earn a berth to the Super Bowl, people take notice. Win it all and everyone's little joke that's been established since 2006, is gone.
