Are people really for expanding playoff field?
 
As Goodell is trying to do?

This ****ing guy again.

They could double the size of the playoff field this year and we'd still be the only AFC West team to qualify.

BowlenBall 12-13-2012 07:41 AM

No thanks to expanding the # of playoff teams.

In fact, let's drop down to 8 teams instead of 12, and drop the 1st round bye altogether.

12-13-2012 07:43 AM

I don't know how to post links from my phone but I just read the Nfl was considering going to 14 or 16 teams. I guess money wise it works but, why water it down and make the season less relevant.

What we need is more 8-8 teams in the playoffs...... ZZZ...

Dedhed 12-13-2012 07:59 AM

I don't think adding teams and eliminating the bye week for the 1 and 2 seeds is a terrible idea, but adding an additional round would be a terrible idea.

ColoradoDarin 12-13-2012 08:11 AM

I don't know of any fans who think this is a good idea, it's goodell trying to squeeze more money out of us since no one wants an 18 game season either.

Will it make the playoffs any better? The 7th and 8th best teams in each conference will add to the quality of the games? I'm going to laugh when a 6-10 team makes the playoffs and beats a top seed.

I'd rather goodell go be commish of a new expansion football league instead of screwing with the NFL so much.

This move would actually pretty much guarantee that losing teams make the playoffs every single year. Not a good idea.

Just leave it the hell alone!!! I love how that douche keeps trying to **** up a good thing.

Kaylore 12-13-2012 08:24 AM

I have mixed feelings on this. I don't think there's anything wrong with the current model, but I don't think allowing more teams in would doom anything. It's really about more games = more money for the NFL.

I do. This is what keeps the top seeded teams competitive in weeks 15-17. Look no farther than the AFC right now.

This is a great point. And I believe in principle, half of all teams should not make the playoffs. The regular season needs to mean more than that.

Play2win 12-13-2012 08:47 AM

Pretty soon the goofy mother****er will be having Tip-offs instead of Kick-offs.

RedskinBronco 12-13-2012 08:57 AM

Please God no. I don't want this league to become like the NBA where everyone half asses the regular season.

I never pay for a regular season NBA game; it's a joke. One big hit the clubz party between all the teams.

Don't make the same mistake, NFL

This. If they add 2 more teams. Then 2 more teams need to be eliminated in the 1st round.....i.e. the 1st and 2nd seeds no longer get byes.

NFL does not need anymore teams watering down the playoffs. In fact contraction of 2 teams right out if the NFL wouldn't be so bad. Why the jags are even in the league is head scratching.

That's why I never pay attention to the NBA, until February or March. Right now, the ramifications of losing a game in the NBA aren't very great. One of the best things about football is the limited number of games that are played. Every win and every loss is magnified...

what if there was a clause that a team must have a winning record (9-7 or 10-8?) to qualify for a wild-card spot?

If teams with .500 or losing records never won in the playoffs, I might agree to that, but just in the last few years we've had multiple first round winners with those records.

I see that creating an uneven playoff field, from year to year. That's not good for television schedules...

cmhargrove 12-13-2012 09:38 AM

Why expand the playoffs, when the Superbowl is the big money maker?

I say, create the "SuperestBowl" the week after. Could be followed in 2015 by adding the Super-SuperestBowl or SuperestestBowl.

12-13-2012 09:50 AM

I dunno, what are your sources at Dove Valley telling you?? :giggle:

Archer81 12-13-2012 10:15 AM

We at the NFL are all about player safety. Therefore, we will expand the regular season by two games, and increase the playoff field!

Huzzah!
