Roger Goodell said NFL is exploring the idea of expanding the playoffs from 12 to 14 or 16 teams. Good idea?


But what about the increase in games causing more injuries?

Quote:
Ian Rapoport ‏@RapSheet
Roger Goodell reiterates that he won't push for an 18-game season unless "we do it the right way"

Nuke it. Then nuke it again. Goodell is trying to be creative with this and the no kickoff idea but we don't need more football Roger, we need better football.

It'll never happen. There's no way. That's a worse idea than the 18-game regular season.

Jeez 16 teams. Brings to meaning to playoffs, they really dont mean anything. I think its ideal the way it is. 4 division champs / 2 wild cards. I dont mind change, but not this.

Agreed. This is one place where the NFL has it down as right as they can. Maybe some seeding issues, or issues with bad division winners taking a spot from a better team in a division that has been won by someone else 2008 Pats come to mind) but net/net, it's better than any other league.

Don't try to fix what ain't broke.

I've always thought that the NFL has the perfect playoff system. Goodell needs to go if he keeps trying to do crap like this.

Absolutely hate this idea. The best thing about the nfl is that every regular season game is huge. It won't be the case if it's that easy to get into the playoffs.

Go NHL style. The superbowl would be played by practice squaders.

I used to defend Goodell, but now it's pretty obvious that all he cares about is...

Orlovsky has too much experience here. Manziel doesn't stand a chance.

Literally his only job is to make money for his bosses. I'm not sure why this is news to anyone.
