I don't care how their stupid formula works, this is the dumbest shit I've ever seen.

The best thing about Pro Football is the playoffs... and this is coming from a Chief's fan.

There is no series... its one game and your done. It's what also makes March Madness about the only basketball I can get into.

This reminds me too much of the BCS poll bull shit. When it all comes down to it, a computer formula should not be telling us who deserves to go to the title game.

I'm sure once the Colts see this they'll feel much better.

Carolina and Seattle pass the Steelers because they won by larger margins.
They won by larger margins because they played inferior teams compared to Indy. And if not for the officials spotting the Colts eight points, Pittsburgh would have won by 11 or more.

I heard Matt Leinart said the Colts were still the best team.

The Peyton Mannings are the best team to not make the SuperBowl. :)

Nah. Patriots would've throttled them again. I have no doubt about it. And, of course, Pittsburgh (if Denver wins, God forbid).

I was being sarcastic. ;) I think even the Chiefs could have beaten the Colts the way they played their last few games.

I have been using the statistics from FootballOutsiders for several years. They are a data driven determination. Not a game driven winner. We all talk about those games that are aborrations to the general play of a team. (Buffalo beating Pats 1st game 2004 season). Or that on any given Sunday any NFL team can beat another. (KC at Buffalo this season) The statistics that gives those rankings are an indication of the general strength of those teams. (By the way while on Fox site the FO only include playoff teams but on their home site they include all the teams and KC is rated 3rd best team by the end of season) But it doesn't indicate which team WILL win and with playoffs you only get one game to make a determination. The statistics are good in indicating the overall play for the season. Not the narrow play of a particular game. That is why Indy can still be rated 1st and not win the SB. Just like the best teams don't always win when they are suppose to.
So we do have a playoff that decides who wins the SB trophy. It may not include the best teams from the season.

They are the best team all right, the best team to be home watching the rest of the playoffs.
