The last 5 years don't seem to agree with you. Between 2009 and 2013 if 7 teams made the playoffs the 7th team's record would have broken down like this:
3 10-6 teams; '13Ari,'12Chi,'10NYG
4 9-7 teams; '09Hou, '09Atl, '10SD, '11Ten
3 8-8 teams; '12Pit, '13Pit, 'Chi

In 3 of the 5 years (2010,11,13) at least 1 division champ had a record worse than the 7th seed would have and in 2010 2 teams were better than the 7-9 NFCW champs Sea.
In no case would a sub .500 team have been the 7th seed.

Edit. I decided to go back to 2000 on NFL.com and without tallying it the results were inline with the numbers above. And all the way back to 2000 not one 7-9 or lower team would have been the 7th seed. Ever.

As for Cuban's remarks, its hilarious to me that an NBA owner with 82 regular season games per team is going to lecture the NFL. Every team's fan still has only 16 games to watch and hope their team does some good. When the other games are on matters less but if they are scheduled right you will still tune in because you want to see how the competition is doing.

Did anyone honestly want to see any of those teams in the playoffs? Chicago's defense was worse than ours. Pittsburgh was the definition of average. Neither deserved to be in the playoffs. The owners just need to leave the damn game alone. It's already watered down as it is.

Since it is clear that the 7th seed would historically be on par with or better than at least the 4th division champ the added competition would be excellent. I am confident that the fans of that 10-6 cardinals wanted to see their team in the playoffs. And I certainly remember when the 11-5 Patriots missed the playoffs. Pretty certain a game pitting them against the 2nd seed that year would have been extremely entertaining..

Point is the 7th team isn't always, or even mostly, a floundering team. Its often a very good team in a very competitive division/conference.

Plus we've seen some teams that finish 8-8 or 9-7 do some serious damage in the playoffs.

Good breakdown. Surely the NFL has crunched all the numbers as well and know exactly what they're getting by adding another playoff team.

Wow, the no No Fun League is rearing its head again.
No more dunking.
If you dunk the football over the crossbar it will now be a penalty.

Why does the NFL even care about this? Aren't there more important things on their agenda than thinking about a celebration that hurts anything probably once a season? Few fans will support it, and it'll impact the overall product in a very minute way. Seems like a waste of time. Here's the link:

While on CSN Washington, I came across this article:

Some years you're going to have a 10-6 not make it, and the rare occasion an 11-5 team not make it. It's not a perfect system. But more times than not, we're going to see a team like last years Steelers get in. No desire to watch that. Just waters it down too much for me.
