    but I think we would end up with another pro bowl type game. No one is going to play hard for third place.

    absolutely not on board with this. If they add another game, it should be a play-in game before wild card weekend. Add 2 teams to the fold, in meaningful games..

    not adding a totally meaningless game.

    except, as a bronze medal winner, you still are considered a winner. With this extra game idea, there are no winners, only losers.

    Maybe it is a culture change that is needed. World Cup does a third place game too I think.

    I think it's just USA tradition, with the "winner takes all" mentality. 2nd place winner is 1st place loser, and I don't know if there's a way to properly convince otherwise with US fans. Especially with a quantifiable sport like football, basketball, or baseball.

    I can see it working for racing, or judged sports, though.

    Would the broncos get the silver medal by default, even though the 9ers were probably more deserving?

    It would be super funny to see an embarrassed Peyton Manning getting a bronze medal, though. So I'm personally not too opposed to it.

    Did you know the Super Bowl champions used to play a game against college all-stars?
