OK. Next year the NFL goes to a new alignment of teams and divisions. I predict that there will at least one division winner at .500 or worse going to the playoffs at the expense of one or more other teams in another division at 9-7 or 10-6. And Bubba you all gonna hear some howlin’ then.
At the NFL’s 2003 Spring Meeting the owners are going to go to a 14 team playoff format. In 2004 they will go to a full 16 team four-round tourney. And you can bet your boots that some crappy teams are going to be playing ball in January.
