Giants and Tampa were 10-6 and missed the wild-card on tie-breaker. I'm a Giants fan and I said, "Too bad!" Those are the rules. I remember people calling in to WFAN moaning and complaining. Saying how the Seahawks were going to get killed and how it is giving New Orleans, a wild card team, a "bye". Well, Seahawks went out and beat the Saints. In 2008, the year Brady got hurt, Pats went 11-5 and missed the play-offs, while San Diego (I think) won the AFC West at 8-8. Too Bad.
But shouldn't we learn from that rather than emulate it? I am against not having the best teams in the playoffs for the sake of some realignment.
