    Seahawks have been my #2 team since Moon went there and I started to pay attention to them, hope they win tonight.......up 7-0 now in the 1st.

    Plus it would be funny to see a 7-9 team host a playoff game.

    Man the NFC West is bad, the Rams can't stop tripping over themselves.

    My dad needs a 20 yard catch by Amendola to win his ff league. Too bad the Rams offense didn't show up today. Neither team looks like a playoff team. Looks like Seattle will be the lucky ones to get steamrolled next week by New Orleans

    Man what do y'all think goes through Kubiak's head when he watches Pete Carroll about to go to the playoffs with a losing record in his first year?

    "Give me the 9ers/Cardinals/Seahawks/Rans job and I too could make the playoffs."

    Heh, I dont know. No doubt a crappy division but congrats to Pete Carroll and the Seahawks. Playoffs in the first year. Something Kubiak hasnt done in 5 years but I digress

    So I guess he lost? Or does he get points for receptions and return yards?

    Seeing Pistol Pete in the playoffs is awesome!

    Almost makes me forgive him for sticking us with Lane Kiffin.

    With the Boys and Texans out, I might back Seattle.

    I wish I had his hair?

    I'm happy for CP. Guy has worked his ass off his whole career, and its good to see him finally make it to the playoffs, even if its on a 7-9 team. :smiliepalm:

    The Seahawks are a playoff team this year at 7-9, which means that the only way they can have a WINNING season is if they win the Superbowl. If they just merely make it to the Superbowl, they'll break even at 10-10. Heck, if they make it to the NFC Championship game and lose, they'll be LOSERS for the year at 9-10. Amazing.

    I've got family in Washington and Oregon, so I'll be rooting for Seattle this weekend. If I remember to watch the game that is. LOL

    I would just love it if a 7-9 team won the Super Bowl. I would be laughing my ass off at NE and Indy.

    Losing teams should not go to the playoffs, period. If a division can't produce a winner, its spot in the postseason should become a wildcard position.

    If you're going to do that, why not just get rid of division and conferance titles altogeather? Just have the twelve NFL teams with the best record go to the playoffs no matter their division or conference and seed them according to their record and the inevitable tie breakers.

    Frankly, I wouldn't have a problem with that. It would certainly insure only the best teams get there.

    Seattle,

    Please beat the 'aints. I'm tired of "who dat" nation getting up in my grill about my Texans. How dare saints fans question my love for a "loser". How quickly they forget their past and all the pain throughout the years.

    Thank you.

    Do you think that would buy Pete Carroll any slack? Will it still count as a losing season? 3 years from now are the fans going to say, "heck, give him some slack, we got to the play-offs in 2010."

    Or are they going to say, "three years of losing seasons..... this year better be different."

    I think they should at least look at realignment. This has been a problem for some time. Wild-Card teams have regularly had better records than the AFC & NFC West.

    They desperately need to find a new formula for determining playoff teams. The fact that a losing team is in the playoffs when the Giants and Tampa both finished 10-6 is just stupid.
