What's the most intriguing divisional playoff matchup?

What is the most intriguing NFL divisional playoff matchup?

Seahawks only close to worst ever

Surprisingly, the Seahawks might not be the worst playoff team of all-time -- and not surprisingly, their closest competitors also hail from the NFC West.

Playoff change we can believe in

The NFL's division system should remain in tact, but a sub-.500 playoff team like the Seahawks should not be able to host a first round playoff game.

In need of repair

NFL divisional games no longer carry the weight they used to, and likewise, a division championship has diminished in worth. The league must take action - especially if an 18-game regular season is imminent - to bring meaning back to divisional contests and allow the best teams in the league to qualify for the playoffs.

Better than BCS

The NFL's playoff format may not be perfect, but it's a heck of a lot better than what the BCS has done to college football.

Need to re-seed

The 7-9 Seattle Seahawks and their first-round home playoff game are the greatest case yet for Roger Goodell and the NFL re-seeding teams at the start of the postseason.

By Anthony Stalter | January 5, 2011; 07:45 AM ET | Comments (3)

Emphasis on division

Plenty of mediocre teams have made the playoffs before and there will be plenty more after the 2010 NFC West champion Seattle Seahawks. But the NFL's current division playoff format is the best way to go.

Where will Randy Moss end up?

Where will T.O. end up?

Where will Terrell Owens end up in 2010?

By Reader Poll | July 15, 2010; 09:15 AM ET | Comments (0)

Not done yet

Even at 36, Terrell Owens can still play in the NFL, and the Washington Redskins are a likely suitors.

NFC West wide open for 49ers

The NFC West is wide open for the San Francisco 49ers to usurp the throne from the Arizona Cardinals and reach the 2010 NFL playoffs.

Seahawks lead the pack

A great draft weekend and a pair of trades to help the running game have the Seahawks ready to compete again in the NFC West

By Doug Farrar | May 5, 2010; 07:14 AM ET | Comments (0)

NFC West beefs up

The Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers both took significant strides through free agent acquisitions and the draft make themselves division title contenders once again in the NFC West.

Strange move

Carroll leaving now makes little sense. He must know something that outsiders don't (is USC about to find itself in big trouble with the NCAA?).

By Michael Oriard | January 11, 2010; 04:07 PM ET | Comments (1)

No Trojan Horse

There should be more questions about whether USC can succeed without him than whether he can succeed in the pros.

Feckless in Seattle

It boggles the mind that any organization with a lick of football sense would pay over $30 million over five years to put him in charge.

Seattle's not his scene

Carroll good enough, smart enough... but a poor fit for the Seahawks

By Rob Rang | January 11, 2010; 10:40 AM ET | Comments (0)

Carroll Qualified

Given the state of the Seahawks, six wins might do just fine.

By Dave Goldberg | January 11, 2010; 10:35 AM ET | Comments (0)

Don't bet the nest

Pete Carroll has a better chance of succeeding the third time around, if for no other reason than having learned from the pitfalls of his first two NFL stops... but there are no guarantees.

Is Shanahan right for the job?

Will Redskins coach and vice president of football operations Bill Shanahan be able to turn the team around.

Harmony is key

Having a strong general manager and a strong head coach who can gel is how you win a Super Bowl.

Does it matter?

The Browns are so messed up that they will be nearly impossible to fix anyway.

By Dan Parker | November 9, 2009; 10:06 AM ET | Comments (2)

Owner is king

The most critical person is the one who hires the coach and GM.

By Dave Goldberg | November 9, 2009; 09:45 AM ET | Comments (2)

GM has it easier

Put Belichick back in a Browns hoodie and he'd be lucky to go 5-11 again.

Sleepless in Seattle

The time to push the reboot button has arrived for the Seattle Seahawks.

What, Me Worry?

Is it wise to worry about your season after only two games? Perhaps not, but here are a few teams that need to turn things around

Integrate the Black Olympics!

The fact that only African Americans were invited to compete in the "Black Olympics" makes me want to puke.

Awareness Fail

If you want to do racial humor, you have to be very skilled, and you have to know EXACTLY where the line is

By Doug Farrar | July 16, 2009; 10:24 AM ET | Comments (1)

First Rule of Funny. Be Funny.

There wasn't anything remotely offensive in "Black Olympics" other than the complete lack of comedy.

It's Always Brains Over Bucks

Big money means nothing when it comes to team success.

By Doug Farrar | July 3, 2009; 08:13 AM ET | Comments (0)

More Money Wins

Money can be spent well and spent poorly, but ultimately more money is always better.

By John Morgan | July 3, 2009; 08:12 AM ET | Comments (0)

A Losing Formula

Years of capricious and irresponsible spending are taking their toll, and based on last season's debacle, it doesn't look as if Dallas will extricate itself anytime soon.

A Walk and a Wink

Whether we like to admit it or not, there is a separate and unequal class of people who get away with things that the rest of us can't

Holmgren Creates Greatness

If the most important position in the NFL is quarterback, the most coveted retired coach should be Mike Holmgren.

Shanahan in Demand

With Jerry Jones and Daniel Snyder hot on his trail, Mike Shanahan will get the highest bid.

Mariucci and Mayock Pick Sanchez Over Stafford

If you put Sanchez in the right system, one that emphasized creativity and route diversity and pocket movement, he'll do everything required to be a great player in this league.

By Doug Farrar | April 22, 2009; 09:05 PM ET | Comments (0)

Sanchez Fits Seattle

Much has been made of Mark Sanchez's rising stock. As perhaps the only media member who viewed his Combine performance live, as well as attended USC's Pro Day, I can understand why.
