How do you know you didn't do well? Was that the feedback or just what you thought?

Hmmm, it really depends on what they were looking for. If you have some specific skills or experience they want that may outweigh the area you did less well in. Nobody is strong at everything, not if an interviewer is doing a good job, sometimes finding an obvious weakness is better than vaguely well rounded, it could just be a case of you needing some specific skills/training. If you like the people that interviewed you, like the company that is making the offer, I say go for it.
