    NFC South champion will not have a winning record and will host a game against an opponent that may be 11-5. Maybe the NFL should consider reseeding the playoffs?

    ^ I agree with you, but the same thing happened when Seattle (7-9) hosted New Orleans (11-5) in 2010.

    Seattle won that game, btw. It was the "beast quake" game.

    Seattle and New England look like the class of the NFL right now. Denver on the next tier. Everybody else has a major weakness.

    Seattle's offense looks pretty suspect. Haven't scored 20 points in the last 3 games, I think.

    Edit: Scored 24 vs the Eagles.

    Last 5 games though:

    They did indeed. I remember it well. Insane run by Lynch.

    Issue to me is whether winning your division is enough to let you host a playoff game with a sub-500 record. Who knows what would have happened had seeding been different and that game was played in New Orleans. I'm in the camp that you should get some sort of bonus for winning your division, but not so sure you should be guaranteed a home game regardless of your regular season record. Everyone will have a different take on this I think.

    Bernie Kosar on the Browns organization: "It makes me want to throw up," Kosar said. "I've had a headache for 15 years," he said. "And it's getting worse."

    The Browns declined to comment on Kosar's remarks.

    :lol: oh this is good stuff! lol

    RG3 doesn't look like complete garbage although he looks slow when he's running or scrambling.

    Ugly Pats win but still a win. Hope they beat Buffalo next week to secure home field advantage.

    The Dolphins - Vikings was pretty exciting

    Typical of the Dolphins to piss away a win, then somehow manage to win anyway, only to find out that the Steelers eliminated them anyway.

    Although I suppose this is progress - last season they simply pissed away wins and their playoff berth

    What the heck is up with the broadcast team for the Rams/Giants game be like "Oh Tom Coughlin is a great man should definitely not be fired just a role model for all the youth of this nation I mean like just a great man oh and the Rams just scored a touchdown I guess."

    Sorry that your coach is not an American icon.
