NFL Playoff Theory: How Do You Solve a Problem Like the Seahawks? | Bleacher Report

Stashed in: Football, Seattle, Seahawks

Old but still relevant. Divisions hurt playoffs.

Basically, make the NFL more like the NBA and the NHL:

Get rid of divisions and unbalanced schedules altogether. Play everyone in your Conference once, and one out-of-Conference game a year. The top 6 records in each Conference get in, with the top 2 getting a first round bye. You know the rest.

Btw it's funny this was written in 2010 because the 7-9 Seahawks made the playoffs.

Fast forward 3 years and the Seahawks are the best team in the NFL.
