But saying you don't derserve a home game without winning your division isn't right either because technically winning your division doesn't mean you won the most games against your division. Just look at the Raiders. They are the first team in 40 years that go 6-0 against their division and miss the playoffs. So with that said, basically it's the team with the most overall wins that wins the division which now lets you argue against the way the current seeding is done in my opinion.
WOW, I didn't see that. Now I have to rethink my whole view on this subject.

I still feel the system isn't broke at all and it encourages teams to go out and win every game not just those six.

With this logic Raiders should be complaining like mad, for them the system is broke. Technically the Raiders should be the Division Champs and should represent their division.

Man I watch that game lastnight with Seahawks and Rams and i don't know if they were just feeling each other out or they both are just sorry we should have a field day agains the Seahawks injurys or not. Payton put your foot on the gas and stay on it the whole game. So the league were still the champs.

As we all know it (a team like Seattle making the playoffs) happens so rarely it's almost, to me, a non-issue.

I look at it like this: The Saints should have beat Arizona and Cleveland and they should have beaten Atlanta twice. Seattle won their division. They don't owe anybody an apology. They did what they had to do. Had we done the same we'd be off this week getting healed up for a game in the dome.

Im old and im tired of seeing changes, just for the sake of changes.

I'd like to see one thing stay the same.

The only change I like since 1975 is cell phones, but just for making calls.

And now for my serious answer:

Life isnt fair. We used to be a good team in the same division with Joe Montana, and John Robinson's Rams. It wasnt fair back then either, but
we all started out 0-0. If you win, you win, and it doesnt matter what happens elsewhere. We should have beat the Browns, should not have let Ray Rice run over us, should kick 11 yard FG's, and damn sure shouldnt lose to the dumbazz CARDINALS!

It is crazy, but Im glad to be us, and its a great day to be a Saint!

...and now we have to line up against these guys who slipped on a banana peel to get in, and it may not be the cake walk that many think. Its a whole new season with a different kind of mind set and having been there is not what gets you back there again. This one is not automagically in the bag.
