11 Well-deserving NFL Playoff Teams - And One Other

Click the image for full stats list

OK - Let's all pick the best 12 teams in the league for the playoffs. Seriously, go up and pick them..

(Jeopardy theme playing...)

Did anyone pick the Seattle Seahawks? Exactly.

Such a travesty that TWO 10-6 teams will miss out, and this team gets to go lose to the Saints. Not only that - they actually get to host the game next week! Let's look a little deeper:

It's not just the 10-6 NY Giants, and the 10-6 Tampa Bay Bucs that have a serious gripe, here.

There are also the 9-7 San Diego Chargers, the 8-8 Jacksonville Jags, and the 8-8 Oakland Raiders who have something to be pissed about. Wait a minute.. look at the Raiders' division record. Wow - they went undefeated 6-0 in a division that went a combined total of 31-33. That's right! They beat the 10-6 Chiefs twice, the 9-7 chargers twice, and the other team Broncos twice too.

The Seahawks now go to the playoffs by virtue of winning a division which went a combined total of 25-39. OK so it must be pretty important how a team does in its own division, afterall, they get to go to the playoffs simply by having the best record of the four teams in that division. How did the Seahawks do in that division? Well, they went 4-2. Ehh.....

Let me fore-go any further ranting valid arguments, and just provide you with this to look at for a few minutes. All you have to do is compare the teams here and their respective statistics:
