Anyway, this is a terrible question. I'd rather not lose a SuperBowl, but if it were between that and being the worst team in the NFL, we'd be 5-1 in SuperBowls if it were up to me.

Seahawks 2006

2008 Patriots, 2007 Bears, 2005 Eagles, 2004 Panthers, 2003 raiders, 2002 Rams, 2001 Giants.

They all missed the playoffs after losing the SuperBowl. The only reason the Seahawks went back to the playoffs in 2006 is because the NFC West was such a terrible division.
exactly what the ninrs need anothe 70 million dollar p*ssy

It's not like the 20008 Patriots sucked. They lost Brady in the first 15 minutes of the season and still finished 11-5.
you guys have no respect for the perfection of 5-0. id rather be the worst team and get the 1st overall pick. easily.

5-0 is 5-0. as soon as we lose 1, were below both Dallas and Pittsburgh in the overall super bowl standings. plus to go and lose, and ruin our franchises historic and excellent record of super bowl supremacy, would be a disaster.

everyone that would rather ruin our perfection rather than have a bad season and get the best choice in next years draft, is crazy.

losing the super bowl doesnt even make you the 2nd best team. the cardinals were 9-7, and free falling before getting hot at the last minute. it doesnt make you a great team to go and lose. usually the losing team is totally over matched, and had no business being there.

Those teams may have missed the playoffs the next year, but many of them returned to the playoffs shortly after. And all of them (except the Raiders) continued to field good teams. I would much rather be lumped in with those teams than these ones:

Lions, Dolphins, Raiders, Texans, Chargers, Bengals, Falcons (all had the first pick at some point in this decade)

Most of those teams have been bad almost all decade. I think we need to stop kidding around about being a superbowl team and just try to be a winning team.
It's a trick question. The Niners do not lose Super Bowls!
You are very confused, that's like asking whether you would rather be the Cardinals or Lions of last season...no contest, even if we lost it'd be better to have gone than not.

And that changes the fact that they missed the playoffs, how?
