    Do you agree with the NFL expanding its playoff?

    I didn't know this until the draft, but the NFL has officially changed its playoff system. They are going to give automatic bids to the four division champs and take three wildcards. The only team with a bye would be the #1 seed.

    Byes are silly. If you want a three week playoff, invite 16 teams.

    Or, expand to 32. Make the season for divisional flags and seeding.

    Byes make the regular season worthwhile.

    That is fine but I wish that they would give the playoffs to the to seven teams with the best records. I hate seeing some 8-8 Division Winner make it while some 11-5 team misses out. That is complete bull**** to me.

    In some divisions 8-8 is a better team than 11-5 in other divisions.

    No
    The wild card teams are mediocre and now it’s going to be worse

    I thought about this, and I agree with expansion. I'll sight your logic.

    The divisions SOS (strength of schedule) are not the same. With the 6 team per conference playoff, you have a tendency to leave out a 10-6, 9-7 team in favor of an 8-8 team.

    It would also help out my Buffalo Bills, making it in the playoff.

    Re: Do you agree with the NFL expanding its playoff?

    The NFL plays the fewest games of any professional sports league, so it would make sense to expand the playoffs. What doesn't make sense to me is the NBA and NHL teams playing 82 games each and then more than 50% of the teams make the playoffs.
