the way it is now is fine. Division winners and best records...

Bowl games for every .500 and up team that misses the playoffs
just like the college kids do it!!!!!
the playoff system is fine the way it is now. even if they increase the number of teams in the playoffs, eventually there will be a team that "should have" made it.

Pretty sure they should've won their division.

The way it now stands,if your record is not deserving then you don't make the playoffs.
The 2010 Seahawks, 2008 Cardinals and Chargers and 2004 Rams (examples just from this millennium) are proof to the contrary.

If the Bears wanted to be in the playoffs, they should have won the tiebreaker. They weren't helpless.

Second - I find it humourous when people make demands on forums as if their mad rants mean anything.
Finally - Panthertrain has got to be the biggest troll on this site. I read his threads only to see if someone is going to blast him in place. I skip his comments because they just make my head hurt.

Back in 1990, the NFL had 28 Franchises.
Playoffs were 12 teams. Almost half the league.
I think people want to hate Goodell for the hell of it. I betcha if the Panthers went 11-5 or 10-6 and missed the playoffs, most people will go crazy.
It's easy to judge people when we haven't been in their situation (Bears this year and the Patriots a few years ago). Until we been in their shoes we have no room to talk.
Expand the playoffs.
I'll just leave this here.
