The 2010 Seahawks thought it was great. The Saints weren't as pleased.

dletter: chapman: The bye week should be the losers of the conference championship games playing for third and fourth place.  In order to give an incentive, the first through 4th teams would get a supplemental round of draft picks between the 2nd and 3rd round of the draft.  One pick each, in order of final ranking (champs go first and so on).  Something that would benefit teams that win consistently, but not so much as to really screw with the ability of the terrible teams rebuilding.

They used to have that game (pre super-bowl era)....

Vince Lombardi would laugh at you suggesting to bring that back.... although you would have to give some sort of incentive, like the draft incentive you gave.... maybe the winner gets the 28th spot in the draft vs. the 29th, instead of that going strictly by record.  I don't know if that would be enough of an incentive though.


I'd rather see that game than the probowl.

vernonFL: Not to threadjack and I love football, but the NFL should be out of business. First of all they are a non profit that doesnt pay taxes? How the fark is that??? Then you have the whole controversy over the head injuries, which really made them complicit in brain trauma. They profited off the players and refused to admit the sport is dangerous, when its obvious to anyone that it is dangerous and they had scientific proof that it
was causing brain injuries and ruining players lives. Very sad.


The league is a non-profit but the teams are for-profit enterprises.  It's basically a legal cartel - the goal of the umbrella organization is not to make a profit, but to ensure that conditions are such that member organizations can make a profit.  The 'legal' part of it is useful - the teams do pay taxes, or at least they 'pay taxes' at the rate of any company that hires good accountants.

/of course, that's not the issue at stake, which is expanding the playoffs
//My 2 cents?  I'm happy to have more college bowl games; adding another crap bowl in Florida does nothing to diminish the prestige of the Rose Bowl
///But - leave the NFL playoffs as is.  Diluting the pro game does diminish the prestige of making the playoffs.

I love the non-major bowls and I actually get annoyed at people who shiat on them. It's football - and more often than not - good football with good players that may be on your favorite NFL team soon.

PainInTheASP: I'd much rather watch one extra playoff game than another farking preseason game.  Here's my solution: no preseason, make opening day July 5th, expand the playoffs by another eight games, and give the linemen tanks.

/It's the only way the NFL will survive.


Mandatory HGH and steroid use. Then push the envelope with cybernetic implants.
