That's too bad.  I think the NFL's playoff system, as it currently is, is the best in all professional sports.  Perhaps not perfect in terms of seeding and the division structure, but 12 teams is a great balance.

I still wish they would take my idea of conference-less playoffs.

Wow...is all I can say, so almost half the league will be in the playoffs now. That's sad on Soo many levels, it's gonna cut down on hard fought, entertaining games now. I really hope the bottom dwellers that get in, get blown out bad to show that they don't deserve to be there, but it's a any givin Sunday league. The way it was set up before was ideal. Goodell is ruining this game.

Misleading thread title here.

The article doesn't say it's already happened. It's only speculation by Peter King that it likely will.

I prefer MLB's as they have the least teams and I think for the postseason less is better but the NFL definitely has a better set-up to the other sports.  Adding two more waters it down, we already almost had an 8-8 WC team last season.

 

The worst part of this idea though is the MNF idea.  That is clearly an unfair disadvantage for whoever gets drawn there.

I like it.

 

How bad would it have sucked to be a fan in Arizona and seeing your team miss the playoffs last year at 10-6 or New England a couple years ago at 11-5. You can't do away with the automatic bid for the division winning teams, as division games wouldn't hold as much weight.

 

It also makes the race for that one seed a little more entertaining.

 

As Panther fans, we should love this.  Ron Rivera has been horrific after a bye.  Had this new format been in place this past year, we would have hosted the Cardinals a week after beating the Falcons.  Playoff run could have had a different result.
