Well, fans of 30 teams have to start thinking about the first big event of next year, the NFL draft. And because New England's pick is getting taken away, the winner of the Super Bowl has no impact on the draft order. Either way, New York is picking 31st (last) in the first round.
Thanks to http://www.nfl.com/draft/story?id=09000d5d805a3a57 for providing help. I like to list SOS in terms of total games, rather than the decimal that most sites give. If you need to have that number, take my SOS and divide it by 256.

Re: Atlanta/Kansas City/Oakland. The NFL.com article says that Oakland will pick ahead of Kansas City due to divisional tiebreakers. So that Atlanta and Oakland will have a coin-flip. If Atlanta wins, they pick 3rd, Oakland picks 4th, and Kansas City picks 5th. If Oakland wins (and picks 3rd), then Atlanta and Oakland will have a coin-flip to see who picks 4th.

1 Miami 1-15
2 St. Louis 3-13
3t Atlanta 4-12, 132
3t Kansas City 4-12, 132 (see note)
3t Oakland 4-12, 132
6 New York Jets 4-12, 134
7 San Francisco 5-11, 119 New England
8 Baltimore 5-11, 132
9 Cincinnati 7-9, 118
10 New Orleans 7-9, 123
11 Buffalo 7-9, 132, won conference tiebreaker
12 Denver 7-9, 132, lost conference tiebreaker
13 Carolina 7-9, 134
14 Chicago 7-9, 139, won divisional tiebreaker
15 Detroit 7-9, 139, lost divisional tiebreaker
16 Arizona 8-8, 111
17 Minnesota 8-8, 129
18 Houston 8-8, 132
19 Philadelphia 8-8, 144
20 Tampa Bay 9-7, lost in wild-card round, 120
21 Washington 9-7, lost in wild-card round, 142
22 Cleveland 10-6, missed playoffs Dallas
23 Pittsburgh 10-6, lost in wild-card round, 116
24 Tennessee 10-6, lost in wild-card round, 128
25 Seattle 10-6, lost in divisional round
26 Jacksonville 11-5, lost in divisional round
27 San Diego 11-5, lost in championship round
28 Dallas 13-3, lost in divisional round, 127
29 Indianapolis 13-3, lost in divisional round, 132 San Francisco
30 Green Bay 13-3, lost in championship round
31 New York Giants 10-6, Super Bowl
New England

By the way, Seattle and Cleveland end up with the two lowest SOS, while Philadelphia and Washington end up with the two highest SOS.

Not quite right,

Atlanta and Oakland will have a coin flip for the 3rd slot. If Atlanta wins they pick 3rd, the Raiders 4th and KC 5th. If the Raiders win they will pick 3rd, and Atlanta and KC will have another coin toss for the 4th pick.

    Atlanta, Kansas City, and Oakland had the same strength-of-schedule in the 2007 season. Since Kansas City finished third in the AFC West Division and the Raiders fourth (the tie was broken on the basis of record in common games), the Raiders will draft ahead of the Chiefs. Atlanta and Oakland will flip a coin for the third position at the NFL Combine in February. If Atlanta wins, the Falcons will draft third, the Raiders fourth, and the Chiefs fifth. If the Raiders win the coin flip, they will draft third, and the Falcons and Chiefs will flip a coin to determine the fourth and fifth positions.

With the 15th selection in the 2008 NFL draft, the Detroit Lions select...

DeSean Jackson, WR, California

I know, I know, they selected a linebacker in the first round in 2006, but this is Matt Millen we are dealing with here. Let the speculation begin.

I won't mind if the 'Skins change their name. What bothered me the most was that we'd have to find a new song to replace "Hail to the Redskins"!
