Exactly, the board could have just as easily fell A-8-4 rainbow and you would've been dead. Had the action been folded around to you and you had the opportunity to be first in, then you could think about pushing, but you would still want to look and evaluate how the people behind you are.
It is hard not to think that way I know. God how many times I've folded 75o or whatever and the board comes 775/575/777/etc. Just want to smack yourself in the head sometimes, but over the long run, if you're playing those hands, you're losing.
