After a minor RL delay of awesome proportions, here are the week 11 playoff seedings:

For the non-playoff teams, I'm using the Wild Card tie-breakers. Why? Because I'm calculating how far back they're from the #6 seed.
1. Apply division tie breaker to eliminate all but the highest ranked club in each division prior to proceeding to step 2.
The original seeding within a division upon application of the division tie breaker remains the same for all subsequent applications of the procedure that are necessary to identify the three Wild-Card participants.
2. Head-to-head sweep. (Applicable only if one club has defeated each of the others or if one club has lost to each of the others.)
3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
4. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games, minimum of four.
5. Strength of victory.
6. Strength of schedule.

I __think__ I have all the tie-breakers right. I'm going to double check the 7-3 traffic jam in the AFC.

I have added how many games back the bottom 10 teams are from the last wild card slot.

Also, what's the difference between Baltimore & San Diego? It would have to come down to SoV, right?

Is there any place that does the SoV, or do you have to calculate it by hand? I'm curious since it's probably a pretty good sign of whether a team is for real or not (Seattle, I'm looking at you).

Baltimore's strength of victory is 33-37.
San Diego's strength of victory is 27-43.

Yes, I calculated that by hand.

Basically, Baltimore beat Pittsburgh and the Jets, but EVERY other team either the Ravens or Chargers beat is either 3-7 or 4-6.

Woo-hoo! Bills are only three games back!

What do you mean they only play 6 more?

Ah damnit. I was SOOOO sure I updated that before I seeded them. That's what I get for being up out on a date till 2am and having to be up at 8am this morning.

Well, it's week 11. Every team has played 10 games so there are 6 games left in the season.

That was a joke, especially considering that Mike Mularky still thinks the playoffs are a possibility.

It has to be said again--the NFC is absolutely pathetic.

Don't you mean 61.4% lol poor Zeruel the most criticized job in The W... How dare you disrespect my 13th seed team

Speaking of disrespect I still have no idea what the Giants are thinking when signing a veteran QB, are lucky that the NFC is so poor that they are in a playoff position or just one game out and you throw in a rookie QB right in half way through a season, I don't get it at all was the New York media pressuring Eli to play?... I think San Diego is for real. They have a good all around offense who can run and pass and a decent defense. The rest of the season they have a game at Indy late in the season but other then that they have an easy road to go.
