Do you think the NFL should make any changes to the playoff format?
There were a lot of knee jerk reactions saying it was unfair that the 11-5 Saints had to play on the road against a 7-9 team while teams such as the Giants & Bucs (both 10-6) missed the playoffs.
So my quesiton is: do you think the NFL should change the playoff rules at all?
A few possible changes:
1. Require a minimum of 8 or 9 wins for a division championship. If a division doesn't produce a qualifying champion for the playoff seed then simply add a 3rd wildcard team.
2. Eliminate the rule that division champions are always seeded 1-4 with a home game first. Seed the 6 playoff teams in order based on record and give home field advantage to the team with the better record in all cases
3. Any other changes you can think of?
