Meaning division winners at 8-8 shouldnt get a home game vs a 12-4 wild card. What say you
Only if they develop an algorithm that factors in the strength of schedule/record of their own Division. Look at NE all these years of having such a fluff schedule against the sorry teams in their own Division and usually finishing 12-4 or better. It's not as simple as just comparing overall Conference records. Division has to count for something. It's like the two guys being chased by a bear and one guy says I sure hope we can outrun that bear and the other guy says, forget the bear, I just hope I can outrun you!
Don't expect the Steelers FO to get behind this. The Rooneys know they will be able to sell a lot of hot dogs and beer behind Mikes 8-8 records.
I say keep it as it is. Winning your division should be awarded a home game for both the players & the fans. Wildcard? You aren't clutch & it shows.
Soory, but 8-8 aint clutch what so ever especially comparing to 12-4.
The point about the fans is a good one plus, I don't think it would fair because there are wildly differing levels of talent in divisions. I have seen 8-8 or 9-7 division winners who had a tough road to get there and then I have seen 8-8 or 9-7 division winners who fell into the category of "someone has to win the division"
And BTW BBH, please change your avatar....please
It's all relative. If you can't win your division you deserve to be the wildcard without a home playoff game, just sayin.
I don't know. I kind like the Big Ben on Meth look. LOL.
Way better than the Cowpies avatar.
What say you bbh?
Well that was a bet with steel machine haha
Lol, I was looking for your take on the playoff format.
I’m leaning towards record + strength of schedule tiebreaker for seeding
