Bucs Finish In Three-Way Tie In NFC South

December 30th, 2012

Joe’s not sure how the division tiebreakers will work, but on paper the Bucs finished the season tied with Carolina and New Orleans at 7-9 in the NFC South.

It’s definitely a messy tiebreaker. The Bucs beat Carolina twice. New Orleans beat the Bucs twice. And Carolina beat the Saints twice, including a 44-38 win in New Orleans today.

Each team had a 3-3 division record, but the Bucs checked in with a 4-8 conference record, worst among the three teams. So Joe suspects the Bucs officially will finish in fourth place, which surely would help their schedule next seaon.

Joe will update the official finish later tonight.

    Strength of schedule effects draft positioning… Not conference record.

    They’ll pick before the Aints and the Panties.

    Won’t know draft until all games with 6 or 7 wins are completed .You can be sure that we have at least moved from 11 to 12 because the Jets have lost. For all teams ending at 7-9, the order will be determined by strength of schedule.

    It doesn’t matter what there record is in any season. There schedule is pre determined except for two games. you can go and look up there schdule for the next ten years. record does not effect schedule that much. the nfl only picks two games a year based on record.

    2 games in the NFL’s 16 week schedule makes a huge impact.
