Re: More cries for reseeding

I am fine with it the way it is... You can't penalize a team for winning their division.

You want to host a play off game you win your division.

I don't think it penalizes anyone, it just rewards good teams.

Personally I would like to see divisions go away all together. You play all 16 teams in the conference once and the top 6 teams make it in.

Exactly. If you're going to have divisions in a league, you have to have a reward for winning your division, ie guaranteed playoff birth, host first round, et...

The divisions are there to promote regional interest & rivalries. Deal with it NFL!

If that happens the next cry will be the top 6 records. Start down this road will ruin the nfl. It takes away the division rivalry. Imho

So what happens when we win the Superbowl with a losing record? Will global panic ensue?

nah- it will be like a double elimination tournament where the team coming in to the finals with one loss has to win twice

Re: More cries for reseeding

Even though the South is horrible this season the NFL playoff structure is
in the books. However knowing RG it will become a major talking point despite the outcome if one of the teams does move on.
