Yeah, the reality is if we beat Philly on the last day of the regular season we would have almost certainly been out in the first round. There is no point in comparing us to a team that was a pre-season favorite that had plenty of injuries throughout the year. Plus, we wouldn't have had the same opponents either. Bottom line is we wouldn't have been close to a contender regardless of what people might choose to fantasize about.
