There's too much emphasis on a division title. Just seed all teams.

year to year (and I love parity), you can play a team in week 1 and
they are the pits, and someone else plays them in week 16 and they
have improved dramatically (2003 Pats ring a bell?) There's no way to
rate strength of schedule with any accuracy. Don't know how a seeding
would work. You'd have divisions with 3 teams in the playoffs, and
others with none. Maybe that's OK. The way it's set up now, you'd have
0.500 teams in the playoffs. That makes it a joke. Just my opinion...
- I think we stay at 12 teams because I don't want to see 8-8 teams and even
9-7 teams in the playoffs on a regular basis. With 4 divisions now instead
of 3 in each conference there may be a slight overemphasis on winning the
division, but it makes since as 6 of the games are division games.
Would I would like to see is keeping getting into the playoffs the same, 4
division champs and 2 wild cards, but seed them based solely on record. In
that scenario Tennessee would have been the number 4 seed and Baltimore the
