Who wants to offer the Cards good offensive lineman for the top pick (unless we decide to take Thomas from Wisconsin for the first pick). We oculd probably get more by trading down a few slots to someone who wants Brady Quinn or Adrian Peterson

I'm not really up on the seedings, so could someone please explain what the differentials are when teams have the same record?

ie. Teams 2 through 5 in the AFC are all 6-2, so what makes Denver a 2 seed?

First tie breaker is head to head games.
Second is divisional winning percentage.

Denver is 6-1, beat Baltimore
Baltimore is 4-1, lost to Denver
New England is 5-2, lost to Denver
San Diego is 4-2, will play Denver Nov 19th.

Denver beat Baltimore and New England, and has a better divisional record than San Diego, so they are #2.
Baltimore lost to Denver, but has a better record than NE and SD, they are #3.
NE lost to Denver, has a worse record than Baltimore, but has a better record than SD, they are #4.
Because of all that, SD is #5.

From: http://www.nfl.com/standings/tiebreakers

Two Clubs
1. Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games between the clubs).
2. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division.
3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.
4. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
5. Strength of victory.
6. Strength of schedule.
7. Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
8. Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
9. Best net points in common games.
10. Best net points in all games.
11. Best net touchdowns in all games.

Three or More Clubs
(Note: If two clubs remain tied after third or other clubs are eliminated during any step, tie breaker reverts to step 1 of the two-club format).
1. Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games among the clubs).
2. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division.
3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.
4. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
5. Strength of victory.
6. Strength of schedule.
7. Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
8. Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
9. Best net points in common games.
10. Best net points in all games.

You got the rankings right, but you got the reasoning for those rankings wrong.

First you have to break the tie between Denver and San Diego to see who wins the division and who gets the wild card. The wild card team is automatically #5. The first tiebreaker in that is head to head. Denver and San Diego haven't played each other yet, however. The next tiebreaker is division record. Denver is 2-0 in the division, San Diego is 1-1. So San Diego is #5 in this case, no questions asked.

So then you compare Denver, Baltimore, and New England. In a 3-way-tie among teams from different divisions, the first tiebreaker is a head-to-head sweep (one team has to have beaten the other two teams). Denver actually has beaten both New England and Baltimore, so they get the #2 seed.

If New England and Baltimore had played each other, the winner would have the #3 seed. But they haven't, so we go to the next tiebreaker, conference record. As you note, Baltimore is 4-1, which is better than New England's 5-2. Baltimore is #3, New England is #4.

Jacksonville gets the #6 seed ahead of Kansas City because of their better (relatively, Jacksonville is 3-2, Kansas City is 1-3) conference record as well.

I knew I probably left something out. This is why I didn't try to trump JJD with it this year. I always overlook one simple detail.
