NFL Playoffs Need Tweaking........

It is possible that 2 8 - 8 teams could make the NFL Playoffs this season and that's not right......

The Arizona Cardinals are 8 - 7 but thet have already locked up the NFC West.  A loss 2 the improving Seahawks would drop 'Zona 2 an 8- 8 record and that could very well happen......

The Chargers,  a gm under .500 @ 7 - 8,  can lock up the AFC West with a win over The Broncos on Sunday night,  hopefully that won't happen,  me being a Broncos fan and all.......

There's nothing " playoff - caliber " about being a .500 team.......

But that's not the worst of it......It is possible 5 or more teams could wind up with better records than the AFC and NFC West division winners and b shut out of the playoffs.......The Pats could finish 11 - 5 but not make it 2 the 2nd season if both The Ravens and The Dolphins win on Sunday........

Even if 'Zona and The Broncos pull out the W's on Sunday and win their respective divisions with 9 - 7 records,  IMO,  they still are not playoff worthy......@ least not this yr,  not with all of the good teams out there.......

This is what happens when u let division winners receive an automatic spot in the playoffs,  regardless of their win - loss records....I don't like in Baseball and not in Football either.........

I say let the 6 teams with the best records from each conference duke it out 4 a shot @ The Super Bowl.........

Again,  this is only my opinion.........
