Ya that will go great when they increase it to 18 game season. Teams that suck balls like us this year it would make for an even longer misery season that seems to never end. We would also have greater odds of screwing our selves out of the top pick. Curse you Roger Goodell

I agree with 14 teams. I think it's nice that the top overall team gets a bye, but why does #2 get it? Oftentimes they have the same record as the 3 or 4 seed, and the quality gap just isn't there. Plus with division winners automatically getting a home game it's not altogether fair anyway.

We went 13-3 in 2003 and the Colts were 12-4. So we got the 2-seed and the bye. PLUS the home game. And we werne't the better team. Seems a bit unfair.

We should make the playoffs so that the teams with the worst records make it in and to advance you have to lose the game. For the super bowl only ties are allowed because we don't want to hurt the feelings of the team. That's the american way these days anyway.

Yeah so lets let teams with .500 or worse winning percentage into the playoffs.

Well the NFLPA wouldn't agree to more games during the regular season. This may be the way the NFL is trying to get around that somewhat. More televised games = more revenue.

I'd rather see a universal bye week in the middle of the season. With an 18 game season make it two universal bye weeks, after week six and after week twelve. Do a skills competition (in place of the Pro Bowl) and local community service projects during the bye weeks. Also increase active roster sizes to 60 and Practice Squad sizes to 11.

This is a valid point. 12 of 28 is 42.someshit% of the teams getting into the playoffs. 14 of 32 is 43.someshit% of teams making the playoffs. That's pretty close. The downside of course is the 6-10 teams getting in. Feels like hockey.

The real answer is this will lead to more games and more TV money. The owners have realized they can keep squeezing this goose because people love football. Wonder how far back this would push the Super Bowl into February.

It really just depends on the year. If it was 16 teams, the 6-7 Jets would currently be in the AFC playoffs, and the 9 seed Cleveland Browns would be the first team out right on their heels. Most of the league would still be in the hunt at this point.

Keep expanding them and, eventually, you don't need playoffs at all.

Might as well make it 24 teams.

That way, everybody will know who is going to make the playoffs before the first games when you include almost everybody but the worst teams who can't seem to ever find a way to drag their pitiful asses into our brand-new, ginormous playoff system.

Other than more money to the NFL, I don't see the benefit here.

4 division winners and 4 wild cards.

I wonder how many wild cards have won it all.

So basicly you like the idea of division winners only. This would probably do away with a bye week for any playoff team.

It is also punishing teams that play in good divisions. Where the 2cd place team in a division could have a 10-6 or 11-5 record and stay at home while a team that is 7-9 or 8-8, definition of mediocrity, gets in as usual.
That seems a little harsh, understandable but nonetheless harsh.

How many games have the Texans win so far? Yeah, they are good all right, that is until they go up against a good team and get punched in the mouth.

One of the favorites for Defensive Player of the Year award, J.J. Watt did not have a tackle for a loss or sack on MNF. The Patriots shut him down. Although, Vince Wilford dominated Houston by himself. Good teams do that.

Way back when the NFL realigned, I wanted them to do it geographically. Including swapping conferences. For instance I think the three Cali teams should be in the same division with the Seahawks thrown in. Houston, Dallas, Denver and Arizona would the other Western division. You get four divisions, four teams each division. Six games in your division, four games against your division in the opposite conference (AFCW vs. NFCW, etc), six games against the team that finished in your spot in the six remaining divisions (2nd place in the AFCW plays all other 2nd place teams other than AFCW/NFCW for instance). Then you put a universal bye week in the middle of the season between games eight and nine. Playoff teams could still be four division winners and four wild cards.

The best thing the NFL has going is their regular season. If anything their post season doesn't live up to the regular season. There is no reason to have to make the regular season worth more except money. Its a joke.

Perhaps the post-season would be more interesting if we were actually participating from time to time, Mr. NJChiefsFan?

Haha. Well actually the years I have seen the Chiefs in it have been the worst post seasons of all.

Has the last seed in the playoffs ever won the Superbowl?

:spock: Not sure if serious.

Personally, I would like to be done with the whole AFC vs NFC thing. Its the damn NFL. Seed according to records as a whole and forget the conference BS.

The purists would hate it but what was the point of the merger if they are still going to compete as separate entities.

It's time to dump that completed unnecessary detail. IT would make the playoffs so much more interesting. AS well as the regular season.

Goodell might as well admit to metrosexuality.
That dude sucks as commish.

I wonder if they get one of these if they lose:

Might as well keep the same format of division winners and wild card, but expand it to a lottery system and ping pong ball select two teams for the playoffs. Surprise, you just got fucked out of a high draft pick and you get your shit pushed in by a far superior team all for the sake of a few more commercials being sold at your expense.

Goodell is going to make the CFL awesome. At least Vince McMahon had some interesting "man up" spin on the XFL.

Terrible idea. 7-9 teams in the playoffs are already bad enough. Don't water it down anymore. It's all about the $$ so I could see it.

Didn't the last 7-9 team in the playoffs win? Not that I'm disagreeing with your overall sentiment here, just sayin.

IIRC it was Seattle that knocked out the Saints.

Any team these days can make the playoffs and even win a game... it's just that mediocre of a league. So, in that respect, it's more exciting for the casual fan because some shitty 6-10/7-9 team actually stands a chance against a 9-7/10-6 team.... but of course, they won't go deep into the playoffs without an elite QB, just like those 7-9 Seahawks or the Denver Tebows.

Oh how great it is to be a Chiefs fan.

At that point, i'd be able to say that i've never seen the Chiefs win a playoff game under the 12-team playoff format.
