Like I got flamed for, I don't think losing in the 1st round will do anything to ignite the dormant fans or bring in new ones. Marginal impact. "Who are we playing"?-- a question I got today from a former STH.
We've got to get out of the 46th percentile. The only good that comes out of it is the extra million in net revenue or so.
Here's a hypothetical question... if the Titans have never won a playoff game in their history (in TN), would there be as much support? Really doubt it, eventhough this is 'football country'. Their first year at Vandy, they were struggling to get support at 8-8. Honestly, I still think they are partially riding the wave of going to the SB... It got Nashvillians excited, people who'd never really paid attention to the NFL got into it, the casual fans became diehards, Nashville had a team pro team to cheer for, Media circus=best marketing possible, etc, etc.
So let's win this thing
