It's actually the opposite. 3.73's make your acceleration slightly better than say 3.31's or 3.55's, however you will go through gears quicker and be driving at a higher steady RPM at freeway speeds. For the record, with my 3.55's, 1st gear is basically non-existent as well.
I'd also say that 3.73's are probably perfect for daily driving.
