The NFL ponders changes to playoff format

From where I sit it looks like the NFL continues to court controversy...


What's the point of winning a division if there's no guarantee of a home game in the playoffs? Re-seeding makes the situation worse, not better. Let's face it, Green Bay has no business being in the playoffs. The Packers didn't win a game against playoff teams. I don't feel bad for the 49ers going on the road, I feel bad for the Cardinals being in the best division in football. Arizona went 10-6 and missed in the NFC...they would have made it in the AFC. Want to make real changes to make it fair? Eliminate the divisions for anything other than scheduling. Base it solely on the standings by conference, although even by over-all standings the only change would be taking Green Bay out and Arizona getting in. Even the teams getting a first round bye stay the same. However, that leaves nobody from the NFC North making the playoffs. And, at least for this year, that doesn't seem like a bad idea.

At least that's how I see it...and I sit in the cheap seats.
