Hey,

Thats the system we have played with for years now. It is what it is. Be the best team in your division and you're in and you get to host.

I don't have a problem with it.

True. But do you think there should be a minimum standard, such as having a winning record, to get into the playoffs?

If it comes down to a division leader at 7-9, and a team in 2nd place in our division, the record of the team should decide where the game is played.
Thats the only problem i have, we should be able to play at home, because we have the better record.

I guess I don't have a huge problem with it, because everyone knew the rules going in. And after all this did help the Chargers beat the Colts a couple years ago.

Maybe they should change it so that the winner of a division does get a playoff spot but they have to travel to the WC team if the WC team has a superior record.

Thee is a minimum standard - winning the division if you are can't be a wild card contender. I said all I wanna say in the other thread.

Win your division and you get to play at least one playoff game at home. What is so difficult to understand, or so ethically/morally wrong about that. If we had handled our business earlier and won our division, instead of fumbling on 4th down and throwing multiple lamebrained interceptions, or giving up huge plays on special teams, then we would be the team at home right now and some other team would be on the road to us. But we didn't... So what.
