    nfl playoffs

    Regarding expanded playoffs. Bad idea. The Superbowl should be a reward for having an outstanding season, not an opportunity for a team that only shows its talents at the end of the season. I would have more respect for the integrity of the game if all wild card teams were eliminated. In my opinion the league would best be divided into 2 conferences with 2 divisions in each. The winer of each division would play for the conference title and the conference winners, of course, compete in the Superbowl. To To add revenue, which seems more important to the league than integrity. add some post season or preseason "bowl games" including European, Canadian or Latin American teams or players. Or have NFL teams of contrasting abilities play, maybe the best defense against the best offense or the best pass offense against the best run offense. Or exploit regional and traditional rivalries ( Chicago/Green Bay Dallas/ Washington etc.) There are a great variety of ways of securing an increased bottom line without the indignity of the possibility ( really, probability) that two teams with losing records will meet in the Superbowl.

    LOL, yeah, if I ever finish my time machine I'll make sure not to go back and trade up for Watt. That would be a terrible idea.

    Can't we just give every player a medal for competing?

    "Eliminate Wild Card Teams"

    What an awful idea. These ideas keep getting worse.

    Only two divisions in each conference? That is ****ing stupid. There are quite a few great rivalries with a few more starting to form and if you take away the divisions you are taking away from those rivalries. I think 6 teams from each conference is just fine the way it is. A lot of those wild card team are usually around 10 wins and i think that deserves a shot at the playoffs. Don't fix something that isn't broken.

    I always assumed this whole extend the playoffs thing was a power play to scare them into 18 games.

    I have yet to hear a playoff expansion idea that isn't awfull. I really think 6 is the ideal number. I wouldn't neccesarily mind expanding to 18 games.
