I admit I wouldn't like it if I thought that this took place, but I would also have to admit that it was through my own actions that me and my team were in that that situation meaning if I had done a better job I would have a better record and therefore earn my way into the playoffs on my own merits regardless of what any other teams may do.
Also, Team A (5-5) beat Team B (4-6) in their only meeting of the season, but our tie-breakers go like this:
1. Best W-L record
2. Most total points scored during the season
3. Head to head matchups
4. Best divisional record
If they end up tied Team B will go by virtue of having scored more points this season.
Not saying I will do this, but I am also looking at this another way as well. I feel that every team has control of their own destiny at the start of the season and it is through their own actions what their records are by this time of the season. Imo Team B put themselves in this position by virtue of their record to this point which is 4-6. If he wins out he will make the playoffs as the #6 seed. He has won 4 of 5 and is scoring BIG! I'd just prefer to not have him in the playoffs.
My lineup should be...
My lineup could be....
Westy (much better matchup than LT)
Mark Clayton, G. Jennings, A. Bryant or Coles (Holt has done little in any of the last 3 games).
It is quite likely that this lineup could win as well. The second lineup is very defendable, yet would probably not score as many points and would give Team A a better chance of beating me. By no means would he get an easy victory.
