    I would prefer it to traveling to play the Chargers then traveling to play the Colts.

    Yeah, I'm really bothered by the fact that we're the best team in the AFC :D

    In all serious, the one seed is what we want, no questions. If we had HFA last season over the Colts, we'd have one more ring.

    What the Colts, Chargers, and Steelers did with that number one seed has no effect on what this year's number one seed will do. Their inability to capitalize has nothing to do with what will happen this year.

    Absolutely not. You are assuming a causation -- i.e., that being #1 caused those teams to lose, rather than thinking that those teams lost despite being #1.

    yeah having homefield advantage throughout the playoffs would suck big time. The pats should concentrate their efforts for a wild card game

    #75 Jersey

    The Patriots are 7-0 in home playoff games under BB.

    In their last 3 on the road, they are 1-2.

    Any more questions?

    #1 seed jinks? No two #1 seeds from both conferences ever met in recent yrs?
    all are meaningless statistics.

    Put it this way;

    Playoffs at home = good

    Playoffs on road = not as good

    Lets not overthink this one.

    The freakin' Dolphins stole our signals from a tape and beat us. And the NFL's Steve Alic responded, "That's football!" If only teams didn't cheat like this, we'd have our 4th Super Bowl victory!!
