    I have mixed feelings about adding two more playoff teams per conference unless they want to do away with the bye week for the top two records (1 v 8, 2 v 7, etc.) and have everyone play week one.

    I would not add any new franchises. Talent is spread out too much as is.

    If Goodell wants to do something which would make him a god to the fans, he'd remove preseason games from season ticket packages and allow teams to play them in non-NFL cities or countries at a discount rate.

    I like that idea a lot. Send the guy an email.


    Actually better idea; write the email, print it, wrap a brick with it, then mail it to me. I'll be near his office in New York City next week, I'll be sure he gets it.

    All this is gonna do is increase his profits and make a higher chance that an 7-9 team wins the superbowl.

    No more hitting
    No more kick-offs
    No more touching the QB.

    Pretty soon every player will have assigned stationary positions while the ball is in motion. No moving! No Touching! Just wait till the ball stops and we'll mark it down! Dammit, I said don't move! Personal foul, you're fined and going to anger management!

    I think the nfl crowd is going to start dwindling. Who the hell is gonna wanna watch baseball with pads on?

    Here's what you do...

    Expand roster to 70. Do away with preseason. 20 game regular season BUT players can only participate in 16 games in a season.

    Preserve the individual records and eliminate pre-season. WIN-WIN.

    And make coaching choices deciding when to activate players matter. WIN.


    and 10 home regular season Titans games a year!

    This is just such, SUCH a terrible idea.

    14/16 out of 32 total teams in the playoffs is a joke.

    I can tell you are a man of great intelligence.

    I know, it's pretty real awesome. And having a good serviceable 2nd QB would be soo important.
