Im guessing only the no.1 team gets the bye then?

 

I dont mind it at all.

 

I like it more than messing up the ranking of the seed bc if you do that it would affect the division play.

me no likey...half the teams getting into the playoffs?  lame.  It's awesome the way that it is.  So much drama with just two wildcard spots, even down to the last game.  But just like everything else, they will ruin it because more games = more $$$

I like it.  Only one team gets a bye and it's still the same number of playoff weeks.  Still adjust due to seedings for week 2.  Also would like to see situations where if divisional winners' record is less than the seed they'd face...they lose home field advantage.  For instance, Colts would've been playing in KC this weekend. 

 

We did this in fantasy football when we had a 14 teamer.  I liked it.  Would mean that we would've had to play whoever the 7th seed would have been this past weekend.  Would've been the Cardinals.

It's really only a matter of when, not if, in regards to them changing the current playoff format.

Responding to Dan Patrick's suggestion that the league plans to expand from 12 to 14 squads, a league spokesman told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport on Monday that "no such decision" has been made about adding a wild-card team to each conference.
 
"It would require a vote of the clubs and it has not yet been taken up with them," the spokesman said.
 
Rapoport noted that a vote on the matter might take place at the next owners meeting in March.
 
NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said last week that "multiple" adjustments to the playoff system are in play.
 
"Every scenario has been discussed, ranging from reseeding to one extra game, expanding from 12 to 14 teams," McCarthy said. "Think of a scenario, it's been discussed and remains in play."

Good idea. Hope they remove a pre-season game since this adds to the season.

It's a start.  There is no reason a team that finishes 11-5 should miss the playoffs while a team at 9-7 or worse makes the playoffs as a Division winner.

 



If that's your gripe, then I'd rather them realign the divisions to make it where a team with a less than 10 win record won't make it in, but don't add an extra playoff slot so the Cowgirls have a chance at making it in. That's ridiculous.

It's a pretty simple solution. Top 6 records of each conference make it. It's the only fair way.

Yeah it's not a perfect system. But I don't think it's for the cowboys exclusively. Who knows, maybe this slot gets us in the playoffs next year.

You know...what we COULD do is a points system like the NHL.

Win gets you 2 points in the standings. OT guarantees both teams one point, win in OT gets you 2. Top points leaders at end of season get in. Keep seeding as it is right now. Would've got Arizona in and kept GB out (8-7-1 record should mean you're sitting at home, IMO).
