Goodell wants to expand playoffs?

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..

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

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.

man what a bunch of hateful irrational narrow- minded whiners in here.

goodell could have been the one expanding the season to 16 games or any of the other changes that have taken place over the past 30 years and you guys would have been complaining about him screwing up the game. it doesn't what he does, good or bad people are going to hate him. it's kind of funny how little actual thinking goes on.
