Re: Around the NFL Week 18

I don't understand how adding an 8th seed fixes anything. Either call it a tie, or go strictly off of winning percentage and call it a day.

Re: Around the NFL Week 18

yeah, I'd just say game didn't happen, go off percentages and that's that.

But will hurt them in the championship round if Kansas City wins their divisional round game. There is no perfect solution. And there can't be to such an unprecedented situation.

Adding an 8th team would eliminate the bye for 2 teams.
It would also potential effect Baltimore, who could win the north if Cincy loses but no bye is on the line there. I think adding an 8th and thus eliminating the bye for the 1 seed seems reasonable as that is the primary advantage to getting the one. seed. They are also saying a potential neutral AFC champ site? That would be reasonable as well. Like you said no perfect solutions.

Re: Around the NFL Week 18

Looks like the scheduling is all figured out.

Makes sense. Thinking back, that 8 teams solutions was over the top, just for seeding and home field advantage blowing the whole playoffs schedule up didn't make a lot of sense.
The tie option had the advantage of being simple and super easy to understand. I think this option is a good balance of limiting the impact of the non contest in terms of competitive advantage, and not having any dramatic impact on the playoffs schedule/structure.

Hope the Jags pull it off tonight. What a great turnaround from the last two years

Can’t imagine him being a Jag for life. Hope he is a Commander at some point.

Re: Around the NFL Week 18

The Jags and Giants changed their fortunes in 1 Off season after being bad for years. The reason?? COACHING. Our staff sucks , don’t tell me we don’t have talent on this roster
