The pitifulness of the teams residing in the NFC South has once again brought concern about a team with a losing record hosting a playoff game and questions about playoff re-seeding.
While there is a very real possibility that a six-win team could take the division and host a playoff game against a team with 10 or 11 wins, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport said on NFL GameDay First that nothing is expected to change in the near future.
"The view of the competition committee at this point is that if you win your division, you deserve a home game," Rapoport said Sunday morning. "I'm told this is something they are expected to discuss this coming March for the owners' meetings, especially if a six- or seven-win team does make the playoffs and does get to host a playoff game."
Rapoport added that re-seeding was discussed in 2008, but was "voted down strongly," which is what would likely happen again.
"No one I talked to believes this will change," Rapoport said. "What they do believe though is that the playoffs will be expanded, so at least that will answer some questions going forward."
