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

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.

Contradicts anything he has ever said about player safety.

so if he said they were gonna reduce the number of games you'd be for that? Personally I think expanding the number of games is OK....

I would go to an 18 game schedule...eliminating two preseason games. You would play 6 games in your division (home and away)...and then one game vs. every team in your conference's other divisions (6 home, 6 away) rotating home and away every other year

this would eliminate a lot of the stupid tie breaker scenarios as there will be a head to head game no matter which teams are tied...the top 6 teams make the playoffs, keep the seeding like it is.

The Super Bowl would go back to the only way AFC vs. NFC happens outside of preseason.

a typical season could look like this -

HOME
Raiders
Chargers
Chiefs
Steelers
Browns
Bills
Jets
Texans
Colts

AWAY
Raiders
Chargers
Chiefs
Ravens
Bengals
Patriots
Dolphins
Titans
Jaguars

..and the season isn't any longer, but you don't feel like you wasted your money watching the last two preseason games as ticket holders would get to see two more regular season games.

Very very bad idea. A team like the 8-8 Broncos last year can win the division while a, say 12-4 team who is second place in their division misses the playoffs. No way man, that doesn't work.

It's NOT broken people, it doesn't need to be fixed. It perfect right now. We don't need less teams we don't need more teams. For **** sake, what is with everybody always trying to friggin change **** when it aint broke. This guy is the worst commish we could have ended up with after Tags.

That still can happen though. 8-8 chargers make the playoffs 11-5 pats stay home.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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 think this is the key. They didn't expand to 17 games a season, so they are looking at another way to add more games.

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

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...
