NFL Owners are going to discuss the viability of expanding the playoffs by one team in each Conference. That would mean three Wild Card teams and on the top-seeded team would get a bye in the first round.
Some argue this will diminish the validity of making the playoffs. I, however, love the idea and here's why: This would make 14 out of 32 teams Playoff-eligible (still an exclusive club). Also, look at the teams that have just fallen short that could have made a run. Simply look back at the Arizona Cardinals in 2013 and the Chicago Bears of 2012. (Each finishing at 10-6 and each missing the Playoffs). And I don't think a 2nd-seeded team should get a bye. I think that should be reserved for the top dog in each Conference.
What do you think?
