Great now we get to see 6-10 teams make the playoffs. Way to water down the product NFL!

No, the division winner thing hurts more than this did. Doubt we will see a 7-8-1 team make the playoffs again.

No basis in reality.

Here are the teams that would have been in over the past few years (and teams that got in over teams with a better record)

2019 Steelers 8-8, Rams 9-7

2018 Steelers 9-6-1 Vikings 8-7-1

2017 Ravens 9-7 Lions 9-7

2016 Titans 9-7 Bucs 9-7

2015 Jets 10-6 Falcons 8-8 (Texans in at 9-7)

2014 Chiefs 9-7 49ers 8-8 (Panthers in at 7-8-1)

2013 Ravens 8-8 Cardinals 10-6 (packers  in at 8-7-1)

2012 Steelers 8-8 Bears 10-6

2011 Titans 9-7 Bears 8-8 (Broncos in at 8-8)

2010 Chargers 9-7 Giants 10-6 (Seahawks in at 7-9)

Thats a nice list of sh*tty teams that don't deserve to be in the playoffs.

It's not quite going to the NBA's level of pointless playoff games, but it is inching closer.

Great insight.

While I see the argument for 8-8 I don't for 10-6.

There's just no point.  Those outliers would have absolutely no chance of making it to the super bowl anyway.  We almost always know the teams that are going to be the contenders by week 8 every year.  There are a few surprises here and there but the seasons play out quite predictably.  Adding a third wildcard is pointless.  That team would get destroyed

    • I can't get behind that 100%, I wish Cam was here as much as anyone, but in MIN his first two years they weren't really the stock of the league at receiver, Cordarell Patterson, Thielien (before he made a name for himself in 2017), Charles Johsnon, and , Jrariyus Wright,  rookie Diggs, and old Greg Jennings & Mike Wallace. They also ran a WCO in the passing game if memory serves. Not to mention that was an Adrian Peterson HEAVY offense, I will reserve some judgement until I see him in this offense.  We needed a guy like Anderson as that opens up 1) the run game and keeps teams from stacking the box vs CMC, and 2) it opens up the short to intermediate routes our offense will likely feature. TB ''Two Gloves'' wasn't a bust as a first rounder he suffered a crazy knee injury. Even as NO's signal caller, they don't really feature a deep passing game, they take shots like anyone else but that isn't the basis. It's more about getting the ball out, keeping the QB upright, working the mismatch and YAC.  Teddy was a 1st round talent, and has the arm to connect deep with, this isn't a UDFA that guys here were anointing after 4 games. Teddy actually has legit seasons worth of tape to review if you go back, and take the time to see what he offers. 
    • What will the worlds reaction to China be once this is all over?  Nobody has time to worry with it now, but do you think China will suffer economically by the world turning its back on them?
