That's too bleeping bad.

If you want a home game, how about taking care of business within your division. I don't care how good the top team is. You must beat them.

The Colts were hot and cold in the AFC South this year, and plenty of opportunities for the Jaguars and Titans to overtake them.

Why try to fix what isn't broken? Maybe Commissioner Good Deal is trying to move on past SPYGATE!!!

13-3 is hot and cold? Well, I guess compared to 16-0* it is.

it's with goodell trying to move the superbowl out of the states.. he has some very stupid ideas, that is the centerfold of the league, maybe he should spend his time actually lookin ginto spygate whether than asking brady and the coach if they cheated..

I'm not for Goodell's plan at all for many of the reasons already stated in this thread. If a team wins its division, it should get the home game - period.

I like this guy less and less everyday. It wouldn't surprise me if he doesn't last more than a few years as the commish.

Goodell's plan blows. Let the division champions host the games. If you can't win your division, that sucks to be you then.

It was the reverse of that in the 1980s and 90s: One year, the Steve Young 49ers and the Eagles both missed the playoffs at 10-6, but two AFC teams made it at 8-8. The same things is happening right now with the NBA Eastern Conference.
Yep, and if memory serves, the idea of reseeding the playoffs as a whole, regardless of conference, due to NFC teams winning 13 straight SBs in mostly blowout fashion was kicked around more than once during that time as well. Let's face it, the NFCCGs between the Niners and Cowboys in the early '90s were better games than the SBs in which the Bills generally imploded against the Cowboys. NINE turnovers in one SB? Come on. The '06 AFCCG between the Colts and Pats* was a far better game than the anticlimactic Colts/Bears snoozefest in SB XLI. I would like to see the two best teams in the SB every year personally, and more years than not, the two best teams are usually in the same conference, unfortunately.
