How do you choose 'the best' 16 teams without playing each and every team in the league exactly the same number of times? Thus resulting in a leaguewide 1 - 16 seeding. If you look through this thread, you'll see the league pretty quicky did away with that scenario. A scenario like that would result in an 87 or 100+ regular season schedule.
Yes, some years one conference will be stronger than another, but you shouldn't be in the same playoff hunt as a team you only play twice per year as opposed to those teams you play 2.5 - 3 times that amount.
