People saying this about Chicago but the worst team in the playoffs would have been there anyway under the old system too. The Eagles stopped trying to win and the Redskins still almost lost the game. Fumbles, bad plays, I think a late turnover on downs at midfield? It was embarrassing. And in the AFC a 10-6 team missed out so still a reasonable barrier. I probably prefer a smaller playoffs just so a 8-8 or 9-7 that gets hot doesn't sneak a championship, but I'm actually okay with how this shaked out for the most part.TheBouncer wrote: ↑Mon Jan 04, 2021 4:50 pm Chicago should not be in the playoffs but 6 Wildcard games is pretty juicy. Miami with Tua have no business there either, they've been riding the turnover differential all year. Yesterday was a horror show.
Rodgers is on another planet. He just dismantled the bears ilb replacement for Roquan Smith the second he arrived. Beating Mahomes to MVP at 37 is really something.
Miami would have probably qualified if they'd stuck with Fitzy. As a bit of a Fins fan I like Flores but he totally botched that situation; if you're developing a rookie you go with Tua from the start and stick with him through thick and thin. If you want to win go with the vet. He ended up going down the middle which was the worst option of all.
