    If the winner of the NFC West has a losing record, should the NFL change the rules so that in the future, a team with a losing record cannot make the playoffs?

    Absolutely, if a team from a division that can't even serve up one winning team is going to the playoffs, it is a dis-service to the league and all of the players.

    Well, I don't think the NFL should change the rule mid-season, but, this will be two years in a row where the NFC West has produced a lackluster division winner able to host a playoff game.

    I am a Green Bay Packers fan and there is a legitimate chance that they end up missing the playoffs with a 11-5 record while someone from the NFC West is in the playoffs with a 7-9 record.

    I will be extremely irritated, but, you can't change the rules mid-season.

    I agree with Bogerk. The rule will not be changed this year. This is an interesting question though because it seems like there is always one division that is a lot worse than the others, just never to the extent like this. I think maybe something they could change is make it to where the wildcard has the better record, then they get the home-game instead.

    If a division winner has a losing record, they should default to the next team in the wild card race. You should also have to score a touchdown to win a game, and overtime should be switched to the college system...All would make the game more watchable.
