There is no debating the toughness of the NFC West over any division, especially the NFC North.Aw, but at least it's warming up in Green Bay. They say it's getting up to maybe 11° by Sunday.
The 49ers would earn the third seed in a properly reshuffled playoff system, hosting the sixth-seeded Packers instead of going to Green Bay. The current rules are actually punishing San Francisco for playing in the toughest division in football in favor of a team that won the league's weakest.
Via Throwing Things, where the first commenter says:
If you don't like it, then win your division. If you don't like missing the NCAA tournament, then win your conference. These playoffs and tournaments are supposed to find the best team, and if you can't win the regular season then don't complain about your seeding.
And I'm a 49er fan.
