You know there are some who would see us win 53-0 and complain about a missed holding call on a 3rd and 4 in the 2nd quarter.. Don't try to swim in those waters, logic doesn't float.

correct me if i'm wrong
We lose a head to head tie with the Cowboys because they have a better record vs. common opponents which supersedes conference record. In a three way, we win I believe though because then conference takes precedence but either way we have to beat Dallas to win the East regardless of what happens in Week 16.

The ones with trades are great. Lol. Talk about worthless. However maybe they have one where we are trading down?

Never heard that. I thought even in a three way the criteria is the same? Im not seeing any logic in a three way reversing the criteria. Anybody know for sure? Bueller?
Edit: was reading the tiebreaker criteria - i believe it stays the same in a two or threeway tie, but what is really awesome is the number 12 tiebreaker. A coin toss. The odds of 1-11 being the same are probably like 1 in 100, 000,000 but can you imagine missing out on the playoffs because of a ****ing coin toss. If the coin lands on its side whats next? Rock paper scissors?

I don't recall exactly where I saw that (common opponents) was what gave the NFCE to Dallas, but this article states they win out in a three way tie at 9-7 and they beat us, Redskins, Cowboys or Giants: Who will win NFC East? - NFL.com.

Hm, I always thought it was head to head then conference, then division.

Re: Playoff Predictor

Anyone suggesting we don't have quality wins is just being difficult. We've gone against and beaten some of the best defensive fronts and QBs in the league.

Re: Playoff Predictor

Speaking off playoffs, it's been particularly satisfying seeing Laron Landry play for the shitty Jets while we've been on a roll. #waterunderthebridge

I want to go to a home playoff game.
Well, I like the idea of clinching a playoff spot, and that doesn't preclude us from winning it all the next week. It's only a little far-fetched to think we could clinch the playoff spot:
We beat the Eagles (hopefully likely)
Houston beats the Bears (probably)
Baltimore beats the Giants (again 50/50 shot depending on who actually decides to play)
Arizona beats the Vikings(oh, nevermind. AP may very well run for 200+ again.)

Re: Playoff Predictor

I think the most dramatic NFC Wildcard weekend would be
NYG @ Skins (if that happened, it would mean during our winning streak we would have beaten Dallas and Philly twice during our win streak, and a win over the Giants would mean we beat them 2xs also. )

and

Seattle @ GB (Settle the replacement ref debacle once and for all, unless the reg refs make a bad call at the end too!)

For some reason, I'm not buying Seattle. They're like Hyde when not playing at home.

I didn't realize the NFL is currently judging the quality of victories like the BCS, but if we're being objective, the only statement win the Seahawks have is against the Cowboys. Every other victory they have against a winning team has been a squeaker(including a gift from the replacement officials). They've also lost to the Cardinals, Rams, Lions, and Dolphins. All teams that I would classify as inferior to them, and all on the road.

If they drop 30+ on the Niners, I'll buy into their recent hot streak.

Of course I'm impressed. As I've said, we found a way to win a lot of close games. All of our games this year have come down to the last few minutes of the game. Even this Sunday vs the browns, we didn't pull away from them until late in the 4th quarter. The game wiuld never have been as close as it was if we were a dominant team. If the Seahawks had played the browns, it would have been 45-7 or something like that. That's just not something were capable of with our defense. Yeah, seattles laid some eggs earlier in the year, but so did we. Right now, were both hot, but Seattle is a much more complete team.
