This is flat wrong and is very well could be a detrimental distraction. If being in the playoffs lessens a candidate's chances, then the NFL should prohibit ALL interviews until after the SB. Anyone who thinks this doesn't take away from his time and focus is either guessing, or basing it upon their methods of prepping for all of those Best Buy/Starbucks/Harris Teeter, etc. interviews they've had. A proper interview for a high five figure job or greater position takes many, many hours of prep and is very taxing...on the day(s) before, during, and after. Imagine what it takes for a multimillion dollar contract.
