Goodell wants to expand playoffs?

117 posts in this topic

^ agreed. (with BB, for the first time ever)

I think I'd like the half-league playoffs. Either that, or stop letting division champs get in automatically. If anything, the current system allows for mediocrity more than if they were to just let the best 6 or 8 teams go to the playoffs instead of division champs + 2 wildcards.

So if there are 14 teams, that's 7 each conference...does that mean the first seed gets a bye all the way till confrence championship...trying to figure how the fug that'd work. Maybe I'm just tired as fug right now too.

Let see...1 vs 2, 3 vs 4 then 5 vs 6 with 7 on bye..then lets say 1 win then plays 4, so then 7 would play winner of 5 vs 6....

Yeah fug it. Keep the game we all have come to love the same. It doesn't need touching up other than maybe the new shitty helmet to helmet, defenseless receivers, and kickoff bs. Fug u goodell

My guess would be expand the 14 would be 7 teams in each conference with the #1 seeds getting a first round bye

1st round - 2 vs 7, 3 vs 6, and 4 vs 5.

Then in the second round the #1 seed would play the lowest seed remaining from round 1, while the other two teams play each other.

If it expands to 16 teams, that's 8 teams each conference, so no byes just 8 teams lineup in single elimination for both conferences

I like a 14 team format, remember the Bucs at 10 wins a few years ago? they didnt make the playoffs.

Imagine the possibility of all teams in one DIV finishing 13-3. all teams only lost to each other once and beat each other once. One of those teams will not be allowed to go to the playoffs in the current playoff system.

I wouldn't mind even having a 16 team playoff bracket.

Just cuts out some of the meaningless play. If more teams have a chance, then more teams are really trying down the stretch, more fan interest as well. I don't know how I feel about it really, but it makes sense..

probably this.

and i would have no problem with it and i' m not even sure why anyone would.

and so what if it's a "ploy" to make more money...it' s a frikkin business, thats what it's supposed to do. if it wasn't for "ploys" like this, we wouldn't have 16+ games of football, you wouldn't have football shown on tv, the league would be made up of players, coaches, and refs with day jobs, and you wouldn' t have the NFL so quitcherbitchin.

After the 8 division winners I'd take the next 6-8 best teams regardless of them being in the NFC or AFC.

I'd be in favor of picking the 6 best teams from each conference regardless of being a division champ or not so that we get the best teams possible in the playoffs. Or at least just 1 more wild card to each conference in the same current format so that teams that deserve to be in have less of a chance of being screwed over. Anything more than that will just mess with the integrity of the game and allow mediocre teams to get in.
