    Why not just let all the teams into the playoffs? That way, all the fans could stay engaged, at least through the first week of the playoffs? And we could stretch football into March.

    Better yet, why not an 8-game regular season, and then a double-elimination tournament with all 32 teams seeded according to their records?

    Now there are 32 teams...14 sounds about right...
    Why not?

    i knew that was coming ... my point is we have plenty of qualified teams now making the playoffs. sometimes too many already. Like the year Seattle made it at 7-9.

    Lets say Roger has his way ...lets look at this season... does anyone really think Buffalo, NY Jets, St. Louis Rams and the Miami Dolphins are playoff worthy. I certainly don't.

    I agree that they are not playoff worthy, but they would be playing the likes of the Texans and Patriots in the first round (instead of giving those teams a bye). The one positive I see is that everyone must win 4 playoff games to earn the Super Bowl, instead of the 1 & 2 seeds needing to win only 3 playoff games.


    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    I'd be for adding 2 teams in each conference at the most...maybe even having a bye week between Week 17 and the Wild Card Round so teams can have a week to rest
