NFL will look at expanding the playoffs to 14 or 16 teams.

Albert Breer ‏@AlbertBreer

Goodell just said at his presser that the league will look at expanding the playoffs to 14 or 16 teams.





That's to many teams gonna be like the NBA soon.

We have teams that get hot late in the season winning championships despite a fairly mediocre season on a fairly consistent basis.
Whats wrong with that?

IMO many moves that Goodell has made are for the good of the game, things that Tagliabue ignored. This fascination for a longer schedule is idiotic.
It seems to me that a better solution would be expansion.

More teams mean more money and more games as well as creating broader interest.

Plus, it gives us the additional opportunity to beat somebody like the Mexico City Brahmas like a ginger step-baby.

As soon as this happens the Chiefs go 16-0 and get pummeled by a 6-10 team in the playoffs.

Ok but some of those might be the best team but for whatever reason (injuries) they may have struggled early in the season but came on towards the end of the season.

I'm aware of that.

But regardless of the reason for that mediocrity, teams should not be rewarded for it.

That's what I was going to say. Add two more teams and suddenly it's not a bad idea. That puts the percentage of playoff teams at a little over 41%.

The playoffs already aren't interesting until the 2nd round, and now they want to make the regular season much less meaningful (and it's pretty meaningless now).

Like the year Chiefs were 10-6 and didn't get in, but a 7-9 team did in the NFC.

8 teams would be ideal.

Unfortunately, crappy teams can win crappy divisions.

So I'd give a little and add a wild card in each conference.

I think there should be only eight. Three divisions in each conference sending in division winners and one wildcard.
