RG messing with a good thing yet again .... wants to expand playoffs
 
If you like (or don't like) Roger Goodell's ambition to increase the regular-season schedule to 18 games, you're really going to love (or hate) the owners' next big idea -- playoff expansion.

That's what Goodell discussed Wednesday with the media at the owners' meetings in Dallas.

"Right now we're with 12 teams obviously. We'll look at probably 14 or 16 teams," Goodell said, via NFL.com.

So, um, half the league would make the postseason, then? Yeah, that sounds like kind of a brutal idea, right?

Apparently the owners have discussed it before, but didn't implement anything. That inability to move the idea forward could very well happen again once the competition committee discusses it (we assume) in the spring.

But although some might believe an expanded postseason would water down the playoff teams, it also might be tough to convince the owners of perennially mediocre teams (cough, cough, San Diego) that their squads would have a chance to earn additional money by making more franchises eligible for the playoffs.

Isn't that right, Philip Rivers?

Terrible idea. It would be watered down and too long like the NBA playoffs :(

Allowing 1/2 of any league to make championship playoffs is sports wellfare.

As a player I would hate the idea. Sure its nice to make the playoffs but you want it to mean something more than that you got a 8-8 record.

Bring back the "Runner Up" bowl to replace the Pro Bowl. There was such a thing at one time.
