There is a discussion in our forum regarding the playoffs and what seed we would prefer. So what would you rather have, One of the top 2 seeds and a bye or one of the other 4 seeds and no bye?
Some say that recent history has shown that teams that have had a bye week in the playoffs haven't fared all that well. To me the real issue is the match ups. For example, the Packers were knocked out early cause we faced the Giants and 49ers which were teams that we didn't match up that well against in the regular season and it showed.
IMO i want one of the top 2 seeds and a bye week. Having two weeks to rest and prepare for your opponent is still an advantage that all the teams are trying to achieve. So what are your thoughts and opinions?
