Default NFL playoff expansion

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/5...e-nfl-playoffs

Pretty interesting read... I like the fact that the year the Cards made it to the superbowl as 9-7 team, the Patriots, 11-5, beat them earlier that year 47-7, but the Cards still deserved to make the playoffs over them.

I think the system now makes division rivalries more tense, especially when 3 teams are 6-3 at some point in the season and all fighting to have just the possible 1 playoff spot givin to that division.

But givin the 18 game season on the way, the NFL more than likely will do the 14-16 team playoff expansion for money since playoffs bring in the most money.

Why not just call it NHL or NBA let everyone make the playoffs.

just seems unfair 10-6 and 11-5 teams don't make the playoffs when 8-8 and 9-7 teams make the playoffs. a 7-9 team has the chance to make the playoffs if their division sucks enough.

Lol...it's not THAT big of a difference between 8 teams/ Conference (NHL) and 6 teams/conference (NFL)...especially when their seasons and playoffs are much, much longer than the NFLs.
