Should the NFL change the current playoff format? (**New idea**)?

Since the 7-9 Seahawks SOMEHOW got into the playoffs, I thought what if the NFL changed the seedings NBA style. We'd still have our divisions and teams would still play each division opponent twice but now the seedings could still be by "conference" or in this case "AFC" and NFC."... show more Since the 7-9 Seahawks SOMEHOW got into the playoffs, I thought what if the NFL changed the seedings NBA style. We'd still have our divisions and teams would still play each division opponent twice but now the seedings could still be by "conference" or in this case "AFC" and NFC." They'd have seedings go 1 through 6, so in this case the best teams get in and the not so great don't get in. Do you think this is a good idea for the NFL to consider? Having it go NBA style?

It'd look something like this IF IT WERE NBA STYLE.
AFC NFC
1. Patriots 1. Falcons
2. Steelers 2. Bears
3. Ravens 3. Saints
4. Jets 4. Packers
5. Colts 5. Eagles
6. Chiefs 6. Bucs/Giants

Not much changed, but at least the lowly Seahawks are out. This would make sure the best teams get in. Thoughts?
