NFL  > General NFL  > a bad idea!

The NFL is reportedly considering expanding the playoffs to 14 teams. Just what we want. Water it down so that we will definitely see 8-8 or 7-9 teams make it in.

But as we know, the owners just aren't making enough money!

I agree that is a bad idea. I like the 6 because it makes it tougher to get in and makes every Regular Season game important. With 6 teams you usually have 6 good to great teams and it takes 10 wins to get in on average. The 7-9 Seahawks got in, in 2010 but that was an exception as that Division stunk. Last season every team that made it in won at least 10 even the Vikes and Cincy and Skins won 10. With the Chiefs at 4-0 and the Dolphins at 3-0 and a win over the Colts already that almost forces the Colts to have to win their Division to get in if those 2 teams keep playing good which makes me respect the Regular Season a lot more and makes every game important for them.

They will turn the NFL playoff system into the NHL. They don't need to go there.
