16-team playoff could be coming this year ((Merge))

I think instead of adding #8 seed in each conference ADD 2 Best college teams. 

That would be interesting haha

Even if something as crazy as that idea is, the NFL owners would never agree to share the profits outside their circle.

Terrible idea, IMO. The #1 seed in any conference needs to mean something. Leave it at 14 teams and move the SB to first weekend of March if you need to, which a Packers exec had already hinted was in the contingency plans.

I think the number one seed is a team that deserves a bye week. I like the way it is set up right now. I think if you add another team and take away all byes, then regular season will start to be like the end of basketball season. Guys will start to take off weeks on teams that have already clinched an playoff spot.

Didn't even like the expansion to 14 teams. I liked NFL playoffs because for the most part, it actually meant something to get there. Having a ton of teams in the playoffs waters it down. Going from the top teams battling it out to just "hey you weren't complete trash this year, come on in".

I see where the NFL is considering it based on how many teams have games canceled due to COVID. While I think the idea could work I would hate to see product watered down, but I get why they are doing it. They did the same thing based on the strike shortened season. Sorry if this has been discussed, didn't see the topic. Thoughts?

Now they’re saying that if games go past Week 18, the 16 game playoffs is a cinch with the division winner not guaranteed a home game, it would be purely based on record.

 

Fingers crossed. In other words, a #5 seed like the Ravens could get a home game. So could the Bucs if they’re #5. However HFA is not as big this year unless you’re the Dolphins and allow 30,000 in your stadium.

    • Totally makes sense to address LT in the draft and Pass rush in free agency.... Also a rumor floating around than Von Miller might be either on the trade block or a surprise cap casualty cut. I'd be shocked if it did happen, but even if there is a remotely tiny chance that he is available i'd hope to god that we at least investigated it.... Von Miller on that D-Line with Buckner as well..... look out.
    • Do we need a new thread for this?    
    • Well, you can’t show good plays if they never happened either.
    • Yeah, I'm inclined to think he could be gone too, but I have seen him go in the 3rd in rankings and DEs tend to be all over the place based on projections vs where they actually go on draft day. But it's a bit of wishful thinking. I don't think he goes in the first though.
    • i think it’s very important that we invest in a FA backup tackle to go with Holden.   A low profile, under the radar player for quality depth.    If we’re drafting our future starting LT,  I don’t want to also spend a quality pick for quality depth.   The kid won’t be ready and too many assets would be invested in one area.   Normally that wouldn’t bother me, but this year we have too many pressing needs.
