First Round Byes Hurting Teams?
With the Eagles about to score a TD and most likely win the game, at least 3 teams that had byes would have lost. If the Steelers lose, then all teams that had byes would be gone. I really think having a bye week makes the team rusty while the team coming off the playoff win has momentum and the PLAYOFF FEEL already. I would like there to be 4 division champs and 4 wildcards. The Patriots deserved to be in this year and would have been in the system I just mentioned. Also you are not hurting the top 2 seeds, and get they get a chance to have a playoff game under their belt. Look at all the other major sports, no team gets a bye in the first round.
