So another 10-6 team gets shafted from the playoffs.. Expand playoff teams now!

Enough is enough! Bears are 10-6 and miss the playoffs, Giants are 9-7 and miss the playoffs. Let me clairify, I am ONLY in favor expanding to 14 teams, 16 would be overkill and be too much like the NBA. Dont even say "but but crappy teams will make the playoffs." Thats a load of crap. History shows that more teams with winning records get screwed as opposed to 7-9 or 8-8 teams sneaking in. Do the Right thing Godell! Expand the playoff teams to 14 instead of 12. Its more of a travesty that 10-6 teams can miss the post season than it is that the occasional 8-8 team would get in.

Disagree all you want, but as the saying goes.. "no such thing as a athiest in foxhole." I bet fans are against expanding the playoffs until their team goes 10-6 and still misses the playoffs.

Or they could just do Conference standings and nix divisions.

No. Playoffs at 12 is fine. We don't need damn near half the league making the playoffs.

Why does no one run this place? I mean seriously this guy is accountable for 70% of the threads on the front page.

32 teams, 14 isnt close to half. 16 teams, that would be awful. Why should the 10-6 Vikings make the playoffs but not the 10-6 Bears. Because of stupid tiebreaking rules. How heartbreaking would it be if we went 10-6 and missed the playoffs. God I hope the comish does the right thing and expand to 14 teams

I don't have a major issue with things the way they are.

They could do it where you play each team in your conference once and that is 15 games. Take away 2 pre season games and and those as regular games then extend the season by an extra 1 game to 18 games and play 3 random AFC teams?

Haven't really thought about it too much honestly.

However I think in any case they should extend the rosters, both the active and the inactive.

No thanks. I like having divisional games/rivalries mean something.
