    At this stage there are more and more teams seemingly making it with 8-8, adding 2 or 4 more teams means teams at 7 - 9 or even 6 - 10 could make it. It's a farce.

    Also, having 6 teams makes it all the more competitive.

    Diminishes regular season.

    Diminishes 1st/2nd best record in conference.

    Diminishes winning your division to get a home game.




    Expand to 40, then lets expand the playoffs. Don't fix what aint broke.

    In english.. You let 7-9 and 8-8 AND MAYBE a 6-10 team into the playoffs. I am against it. Why reward mediocrity? We just had a 7-9 team in the playoffs with a home game. Yeah, they won... but I can remember 11-5 teams were missing the playoffs a few years ago. This is just goodells way of adding more games.. Brand it as expanding the playoffs.

    I did a quick search and found this.

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/...10-best-nfl-teams-to-miss-out-on-the-playoffs

    Im sure more 8-8 teams make it than winning teams miss it. I dont really feel like going back and finding out.

    Will revisit this thread at the end of the season.



    As of right now, teams with "winning" seasons with 3 games left

    AFC: Pats, Ravens, Texans, Broncos, Colts.

    Close (7-8 wins): Ssteelers, Bengals


    NFC: Giants, Packers, Bears, Falcons, 49ers

    Close (7-8 wins): seahawks, Bears, Skins, Cowboys

    AFC American
    Mexico City
    L.A.
    Vancouver
    Toronto

    Add 1 division winner and 1 wild card so 8 playoff teams per conference, no bye weeks.
