Well actually there were three SJ76, but this must be qualified with an explanation. Two had losing records DURING the season but all ended the season with 9-7 records which in the modern era is considered a winning record but not by much.
A losing record in the regular season gonna get you a super bowl huh? When? Name one
To say the regular season does not matter is also stupid. To say the regular season does not matter and then bitch constantly about regular season games is laughable.
We all want a super bowl. STFU be patient and let’s see how this goes.
The NFL began the 16 game schedule in 1978. In 1979 the Los Angeles Rams became the first 9-7 team to play in a SB. They led in the 4'th quarter, but lost to Pittsburgh (We had that game), 31-19. It would be nearly 30 years before another 9-7 team would advance to the SB.
That team was the 2008 Arizona Cardinals (With Kurt Warner), who lost to Pittsburgh, 27-23. Three years later the NY Giants became the first 9-7 team to win the SB, beating New England (With Brady), 21-17. BTW, Eli Manning is 2-0 versus Brady-led teams in the Snooperbowl
So technically, no one has had a FINISHING SEASON record of .500 or below and made it all the way to the Superbowl or even win it when they got there.
