    I've got a bone to pick with the NFL. I was just looking at the draft order and noticed that team's whom made the playoffs in 08 were picking ahead of the Pats. That is a joke. Make up your mind NFL. Reward a team for playing in a horrible division with a playoff berth and put them in the bottom 16 of the draft, or take the 16 best records for post season play. I'm sure that the Patriots are not the only team to be affected by this system. Fair is Fair. Get it right NFL.

    No doubt it's a ridiculous system. I would be a lot angrier about seeing the 8-8 "playoff" Chargers picking ahead of us if we didn't already have their 2nd rounder.

    Thats the flaw in the system. When the division a team plays in is so lousy that an 8 and 8 record wins it and makes the playoffs, and a team that goes 11 and 5 andfinishes in second place and doesn't make the playoffs you're right it seems unfair. How about a two tier system, non-playoff teams pick first from 1-20 then the playoff teams where ever they finished from 21-32...just an idea?

    That would be too logical, and you will be fined $15,000 by GODdell for suggesting otherwise.

    Making the playoffs doesn't affect your picking position. Except in two scenarios. The Patriots will pick ahead of Baltimore and Miami (both went 11-5) due to the fact they wereplayoff teams. That is the first "tiebreaker" for teams with identical records. And the two teams who make it to the SB pick 31 and 32. Other than that the picks go by records whether or not a team makes the postseason or not.

    How do you think the Cardinals feel, picking 31st with a 9-7 record in the NFC West?

    Or, how would you feel if the Cardinals won the SB and picked in the order of their record instead of their SB win?

    Nope, the system ain't perfect, but it does try to address some of the issues.

    Yea it is absolutly insane that teams that got the reward of playing in the playoffs also get a reward for playing like sh*t and get to pick ahead of us its dumb but every sport has a few dumb rules so it comes with the game.

    You might be on to something there...

    I really hope both of those A-holes get real jail time. I mean, at what point do you stop letting these guys skate and start making an example of them?

    Proposal would have helped Patriots this year

    Posted by Chris Forsberg, Boston.com Staff March 18, 2009 04:47 PM

    The Patriots pick 23d in this year's NFL Draft based on their 11-5 record. Even though they didn't make the playoffs, two teams that did -- the Chargers and Eagles -- will pick before them based on inferior regular-season records.

    Such a scenario won't happen again if NFL owners adopt a proposal from the league's competition committee at next week's annual meeting.

    As ESPN's John Clayton notes today, the competition committee is proposing that non-playoff teams automatically pick between 1-20, regardless of record. Then playoff teams would draft 21-32.

    Dont let Goddell see this he'll take the 23rd and 34th from us just for the hell of it. And you are suspended for 4 games too.
