I think that going overboard on this kind of stuff just discounts the opposition too much. When there's a general assumption, as in, we lost last year because of toughness, then it limitys the arguement. They didn't beat Philly for a number of reasons, and some different ones in different games.
The issue of playing with a lead is real, but the B's have some offense this year, to think that it should be 6-0 because at one point it's 3-0 doesn't mesh.
