    .500 teams have qualified because they won a crappy division, not because too many teams were in the playoffs.

    True, but post season is meant for the exclusive teams, you know the ones that win more than they lose...

    Sometimes .500 gets it done, but adding teams just waters it down with more .500 teams. No one wants to see that.

    Getting rid of 1-2 weeks of preseason and adding them to the regular season would potentially help eliminate .500 teams making it.

    This turns the NFL into the NBA.

    Who cares if you're barely .500 and don't compete within your division? Over half of the teams make the playoffs!

    Really thought I was on to something here....if we were the 7th team in 2011, and got in, wouldn't it be nice to see us compete rather than watch the Bengals go at it with the Texans when we probably would've beat the Texans....???

    I agree with def dropping (two) of the pre-season games and extending the season, but this format makes much more sense, (giving the two #1 seeds of each conference) the ONLY byes...it's also nice to give teams like (our Titans) a chance to climb into the post season IF seven teams got in, being that we are one of those .500 teams that historically always have played tough football against good teams (not counting last years team in that discussion)....

    The NBA allows 8 teams from each conference to play in post season, and MLB just added another Wild-Card (which made me watch baseball a lot more last year)....Adding one more team to each conference's post-season tournament would be a great and exciting upgrade to the NFL, as well as keeping the "new rule" of giving the other team a possession in overtime if a field goal is kicked, and subtracting two pre-season games, adding two more additional FULL SEASON games....

    Just so you know, the NBA and MLB copy the NFL, not the other way around. The NFL is fine just how it is, just gotta stop Goodell from killing it.

    Speaking of TitansJeff, I always picture him as the dude in his avatar. Maybe it is him, maybe it's not, but that's how I like to think of him, an old cowboy dude.
