playoff tiebreakers

Postby Shaffe » Sun Dec 11, 2005 11:01 pm

i tried to search, but i coudln't find a thread on this topic. what do you all feel are the best tieberakers to settle a tied game in the playoffs.

-bench points
-td's by starting lineup
-coin flip
-guess MNF score
-season points
-higher seed
-highest scoring qb (then rb's, wr's, etc.)

i've heard of all of these, and lean towards total td's by starting lineup. what do you all prefer?

and if there is already a long thread (i'm sure it's around somewhere), could somebody please kindly point me towards it?

Personally, I like to use points scored in the last week before the playoffs... It keeps teams who already have a playoff berth locked up from tanking games to change the playoff seeding or allow their buddies a win....
