I don’t see the need to point out what was plainly obvious.

Why should they not be in the playoffs?

Well, I suppose that sounds dumb - because they just played the cards that were dealt to them. Fact is, is they went 9-7 in the worst division in football. It sounds crazy, but after the entire post-season, I’d still take the #3 from the NFC South or NFC East any day. I guess it’s more of a personal thing, I’m just sick of these “little teams that can” stories.

My big issue with hearing so-and-so shouldn’t be in the playoffs is because it’s almost the exact opposite argument heard all season long in college football. Every year there is the big uproar with college football’s lack of a playoff. Recently now, there has been a lot of complaints about the NFL’s playoffs. Do people want a playoff or not. If I didn’t know better, it would seem as if people just want to crown the NFL teams based on regular season records.

With a playoff there will sometimes be that team that gets lucky or gets hot at the right time. It’s the nature of the beast.

Beyond that, there were complaints this year, among other years, because Arizona and San Diego got to host a game, let alone be in the playoffs, while New England stayed home. In 2001 there was controversy because Nebraska was selected to play in the title game, but it didn’t even win it’s division. Yet, here, New England couldn’t win it’s division and people wanted to see them in the playoffs.

It’s like there’s two completely opposite arguments going on in college and pro football. I don’t know. I guess you just can’t make people happy.

Another fixed Pitt super bowl.

I like a lot of the Steelers, including Mike Tomlin… but they definitely are throwing the paper around bribing motherfuckers.

game sucked till the 4th quarter.

I didn’t care who won, but why was that fumble at the end by Warner not reviewed?

Actually, I really agree with you. To be totally honest, it was more of a response pointed towards some guy talking shit.

I don’t enjoy when teams are average (at best) in the season and make it to the big stage, though. I like it when best representative from each respective division dukes it out… just IMO.

But that’s why they play the games. The last five to ten years it seems that there are more upsets and lower seeded teams playing in the Super bowl whatever they’re doing, it’s working for them.

Personally, I like it. this clinching a division and getting a bye makes some teams lazy when you need to start really gearing up. this year the giants basically backed in. Yeah, they had the best record, but losing 3/4 at the end doesn’t seem to work well.

It’s hard to get that momentum back. Now the cards, Eagles, and Steelers were peaking at the end. Every playoff game I saw the Cards play went like this, these guys suck… And they won the first game, had a huge lead against Carolina, opened up a big lead against the Eagles, and almost beat the Steelers.

Or should we have a team like the giants who backed in the playoffs losing more than winning. I know, Arizona was only 9-7, but they got it done and deserve it more than a high seed. beating Carolina like a red headed step child made me notice these guys.

Yeah, it was fixed with a holding call on the last drive forcing our QB to drive 88 yards for the game winning TD. I’ll have to remember to thank Terry Macauley for that one.
