I have been thinking about this for a couple years actually, and most recently
after our beloved G-Men made it to the SuperBlow with a 9-7 record.
If you folks recall, so did Kurt's Cardinals, they lost we didn't!
My thought process has been that the NFL draft selection ORDER should be changed.
After you eliminate the twenty teams who did not make the playoffs (1-20) in draft order,
why should teams like the Giants or the Cardinals be "penalized" for making the SB with
a 9-7 record? I feel that if you take the 12 teams remaining in the playoffs, you then re-seed them
for draft selection order ONLY! If you take this year as an example, Green Bay would be
selecting No.32....This isn't the MLB playoffs or the NBA, not 4 out of 7, it's a one game
crapshoot. Therefore it is more like March Madness, win and move on, lose see 'ya!
I mean you play 16 games to determine your right to be in the "tournament" as Parcells
would say (if the Commish has his way, soon to be 18 games, but I digress).....
Have a good discussion, your thoughts?
