It's only about money for the owners, had nothing to do with anything else.

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.

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.

If they want to add more games, they should just have the bottom teams do a small playoff for the #1 overall pick in the draft.

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

It adds at least a week to the season, which is another way of adding games without lengthening the regular season so it is a cute way to avoid that issue.

Hell no! This is a money grab for the owners. I already have to shell out full price for two meaningless preseason games. With no bye week we'd have to pay for an additional home playoff game if the Broncos are a 1 or 2 seed. I don't want to shell out extra money just to allow scrub teams into the playoffs. The current system is just fine.

Adding 4 teams to the playoffs actually wouldn't lengthen the season at all. It would just eliminate the Bye week for the top two teams in each conference.

It would mean 4 more games during the first round, but not an extra round.

That would also mean 8 playoff games in a single weekend. That would be a tough thing to coordinate without overlapping (which would suck)

3 Saturday
3 Sunday
2 Monday (like opening weekend)

Not ideal, but no overlapping.

(Having said that, I'm not for it. Just saying it can be done without overlapping or doing anything they don't already do during the regular season.)

14 teams would make things more competitive going down to the wire and they said they would cut two weeks out of the preseason to do that. I prefer the thing the way it is but, if they do change the just make it 14.

What if they did it like the CFL does it, and allowed crossovers, where a team could cross over from the NFC to the AFC. Add 2 wildcards total.

Then only the #1 seed gets a week off, and there is less chance of a 6-10 team making the playoffs.

Right now cinci, wash, dall, and minn are all tied at 7-6 all would qualify for the 2 extra spots. If you added 2 to each conf then you get the 6-7 jets, and i dont think anybody wants that.

Yeah you could maybe add days. But then it adds other headaches. When the season comes down to one game, you don't want a round 2 Saturday game with one team that played on Saturday vs one who played way late on Monday.

So you'd almost have to set it up so the Monday winners played each other the following week. And that in itself could get tricky to juggle when you're dealing with 4 time zones.

Plus I'm not sure two late games on Monday Night would bring the kind of ratings the NFL is accustomed to for playoff games.

No, no more teams, no more games, get rid of the Thurs. games, no more Europe games and Goodell should be fired for even considering putting a team in another country, especially overseas.

The greed of the league is diluting the game and that needs to end ASAP.
