They went 6–0 in said division, still missed the playoffs.

Okay I get what you are saying.

And for sure I agree with that. Usually the easy division just makes the champs record look better anyway.

USUALLY if you actually have 2 good teams in a division you can’t really load up on easy wins.

Actually a great example of this not making any difference is last years NFC West. Niners and Rams were 2 of the worst teams in the league (intentionally or not…) and the Cards went 4–1–1 in the division but missed the playoffs going 3–7 vs. everyone else.

(Sorry for pointing that out for any optimistic Cards fans reading this)
