Default Goodell says playoffs could expand

At the conclusion of the league’s quarterly ownership meeting in Dallas, Commissioner Roger Goodell dusted off a concept that rears its head from time to time.

Expanded playoffs.

Goodell said that the owners “teed up” the issue of expanding the playoffs from 12 to 14 or 16 teams, and that the discussions will continue in the coming months.

The use of 16 playoff teams would eliminate the bye weeks, requiring the top two seeds in each conference to play in the wild-card round, which would become a quarterfinal round in the AFC and NFC.

It also suggests that, with a 16-team playoff field, perhaps the NFL will eventually decide to fill vacancies in L.A. and London via expansion.
How many teams should be in the playoffs?

I don't think the playoffs should expand. The last thing I want is the Dolphins or Cowboys (using them as examples because they're in the hunt right now) making the playoffs with an 8-8 record. Keep it as is and make teams earn it.

Goodell only sees $$$$$$ and could care less about the integrity of the game. Then again, it's the same for all current commissioners.

He keeps getting shot down over extending the regular season so now he's trying this little scheme out. You can't talk about player safety and then talk about more games.

This guy is a joke just like Bettman in the NHL.

I see NFL greed eventually driving us to a 32 team playoff with a 24 game regular season played Sunday through Saturday with a 33 player roster which excludes the overhead existence of kickers and punters. After that, I expect introduction of one-size-fits all uniforms.......... one universal home field, one universal visitor, team distinction only by different helmets.

$15 White Castles hamburgers



$25 mini-dogs



And, last but not least, in the interest of saving fans from getting caught in the net of alcohol check points posted outside every NFL stadium, the downsizing of beer serving sizes (similar to NY's soft drink size limit) where we will be introduced to the highly sought-after 3 oz. $50 beer.



Enjoy!

Didn't Seattle get in with a losing record just 2 years ago?

And they want to add more teams.

Goodell just becomes more and more incompetent everytime he opens his mouth. I thought he started his tenure off well but now he's just become a joke. He's become equal to Bud Selig.

How are you going to be able to watch every playoff game if there are 8 on the opening weekend? 3 on Saturday, 3 on Sunday, and 2 on Monday night? I love pro football, and I really love the playoffs. But that's too freakin' much.

No offense but are people reading impaired? The report is Goodell said the owners "teed up" the idea. It doesn't say he suggested or advocated for it. At this point you should be jumping the owners not Goodell.

I was thinking the same thing after reading the article and then all of the comments in the thread.


And for those saying Goodell is in it for the money? Well what do you think the comm of the NFL is supposed to do? Build the brand, which means more money as well.

Expanding the playoffs is a bad idea no matter whose idea it is. What the hell incintive is there to have the best record now? Hell, under that system, once you win enough games to get into the playoffs you can just rest your starters the rest of the season. Seeding would mean nothing anymore.

More team making the playoffs makes it a little less prestigious to make the playoffs. This is about the one thing baseball does right anymore.
