More playoff teams expected under new NFL CBA

According to an ESPN report, a new collective bargaining agreement, expected to be finished in the next week, would bring changes to the league’s postseason format in 2020...instead of the current six teams per conference making the playoffs — with two earning first-round byes — the proposed update from the owners’ side would see seven teams from each conference make it, with only one receiving a week off

Wild-card weekend would feature six games, with three apiece on Saturday and Sunday...the Steelers and Rams, who just missed out on the 2019 festivities, would have played at least one more weekend under the new format...the biggest hurdle in completing the new work agreement is getting the players to agree to a 17-game schedule, which wouldn’t kick in until at least 2021...the preseason would also be shortened from four games to three...

This is the definition of Kharma.

If Tommie is in a Pats uniform the deal would be done by now. BB doesn't want him.

I'm still thinking Gisele will make the decision when Tommie hangs up the cleats.

I like the playoff proposal, as it could make more late season games interesting with another playoff spot on the line and only one team getting the bye.

The 17th regular season game makes no sense to me. The regular season schedule format is perfect right now and unless the 17th game is to be a neutral site game, most likely in another country, there will be an unfair imbalance of home and away games. Either way it is not needed.

Dalton raised Cincinnati's level from crapola team to mediocre team so he is owed a debt of thanks because he was definitely part of the reason Cincinnati was completely horrible. However, he is a middling qb and the Bengals aren't going to be anything but a middling team until they upgrade that position. Cincinnati has had chances in the past and blown the 1st pick. They have a good chance this year to get a good long term qb and so they hopefully won't blow this draft.

Back in the day, Cincinnati used to have really good qbs such as Kenny Anderson and Boomer Esiason. They had some great shoot outs with Dan Fouts and SD.

I hope not. Beating up on the bad teams isn't hard, but a QB needs to raise his game for the good teams.
https://www.pff.com/news/draft-landi...p-quarterbacks
https://www.pff.com/news/draft-model...2020-nfl-draft

Tua is the guy that Chad and me want. Period. Tua basically lost one game in his college career. I realize that was only about 23 games, but he stepped up when it mattered. If no Tua or Burreaux, then I would rather see Miami get the best player available. They could go after Trevor in next years draft. Better to wait then waste a pick on an average QB.

Yeah, that's the part I don't get - the unbalanced schedule. I suppose every team would get an extra home game every other year...? Seems ridiculously complicated vs. just adding another week to the season, keeping a 16 game schedule, and giving each team another bye. That way, they still get a nearly full schedule of TV games every week, including the extra week, and that's where the Big Money is anyway.

Until you start to think like an owner and realize this is just an interim step on the way to the 18 game season they really want. How many years do they want to allow this 17 game Frankenstein-monster season to exist before they inevitably push for that 18th game? Four? Five? Ah, to be a fly on the wall in the owners' smoke-filled strategy room...

The players better beware. If they think the owners will stop at 17 games, they're nuts. Those greedy guys would institute a 30 game season if they thought they could get away with it. Owning an NFL team is the closest thing to making money grow on trees as there is in modern America.

As I have said, there are four QBs that I think have the IT factor and have played great football. They are Burreaux, Tua, Trevor and Fields. Fields to a slightly lesser degree, but I think he will elevate even more this year. The rest to me are a crap shoot. It doesn't mean I wouldn't take a flyer on one, but I wouldn't use a top draft pick.

And yes I am annoyed by Detroit. They will get to fleece Miami or another team. Miami gutted their team and had significant injuries, but they still managed five wins. Detroit is so pathetic they barely won three. Cincy is close, but I can give them a partial pass in that they hired a young coach and are hoping he grows into the position. It more than likely won't happen as they always have a poor plan. Honestly if I were Burreaux I would try to pull an Elway or Eli.

Agree. They have been talking about removing some pre-season games to go to 18. I go back to that Bud Fox quote from Wall Street - "When is enough enough! How many yachts and planes do you need?" The American business mantra of always growing or you are dying seems to extreme.

How so? Every team will play 8 home games, 8 away, and 1 neutral site. I've heard not all of them are planned to be in foreign countries. They could, for example, have Dallas play Houston at Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin. Edit: re-reading your post, its clear you haven't seen that caveat. Yes the 17th game will all be neutral sites.

I like it, remove a useless pre-season game that no one cares about. Add an extra bye week to keep the players happy. Another weekend that I can watch RZ instead of my team, thats fine.

If I was the NFL I'd schedule about 8 games in Europe corresponding to the first 8 weeks of the season before the weather is atrocious over there. I'd put those on Sunday morning for a quadruple header. Next 8 weeks, the neutrals would be in the USA, Canada, or Mexico at regular time slots. Last 3 weeks no neutral site games. Teams gearing up for the playoffs dont need the distraction. Starting the week after college football conference championships, ie the 1st week in December, I'd schedule the games as follows: 8 games on Saturday, 8 games on Sunday, no Thurs or MNF. Move 1 game back to prime time on each day. Have a double double header of RZ with either 3 or 4 games in each timeslot. Last week of the season all AFC games on one day, and all NFC games on the other. Rotate by year. Not sure if Scott Hanson's voice will hold up though lol.

Of course what I want more than anything is more games in 4k or even "4k" like Fox puts out. Its light years ahead of the bit starved BS we've been served up for years.

Also, I hope on the playoff format that they allow wild card teams to be seeded higher than division winners if they have a better record.

Then again, in "socialist" Europe, "Football"/Soccer season is pretty much year round, in even number years anyways.

With a 17 game schedule, it would seem the writing is on the wall. The league will expand to at least 34 teams within the next 5 years. With the test marketing of London (Kraft has been pushing this move) and Mexico City, they top the list. North of the border; Montreal or Toronto. Portland and San Antonio have been mentioned. By playing at neutral sites, ones I have mentioned or other cities who have been trying to lure the NFL, they would be given the opportunity to show what they could provide. The inter-conference games will be played at neutral sites. The downside to neutral sites while waiting for the expansion? Cities like San Antonio hosting Washington vs Cincinnati. Who would want to go to that game? There would be some good match-ups, but there would also be some stinkers. Not sure how that benefits the NFL except by expediting the expansion.

sounds interesting having 1 neutral field game every season...will definitely add to the intrigue if a playoff spot comes down to the final week (as it usually does) and a team has to go to some neutral site to play the game...hopefully it's a not a site in another country...the NFL is obsessed with London and Mexico games

I think they're going to run into very serious resistance from the players on locating teams outside of the USA (or Canada I suppose). Imagine getting traded to Mexico City and having to either move your family down there or live months of the year apart. I mean "normal" people deal with situations like that but, the players have a pretty strong union. As far as Canada, haven't the Bills tried playing a game or two there and got a pretty tepid response? And, I hope, the NFL is smart enough to regionalize the USA neutral site games, try and find cities with split fanbases. Washington v Cincinnati in San Antonio would indeed be awful. 34 and then 36 teams is probably coming one day though.

It has been previously mentioned that the owners are not interested in doing that. They feel winning the division is important and they deserve the home game.

How about 17 regular season games and one additional bye for each team?
It's still one more game.. but an additional week off for everyone to recuperate.
If we did the above two things.. the SB would have been played just a few days ago.



They could cut the pre-season games to 0 for all I care, but the owners would never do that.

How long do the CBA's go? Because that's about how long it will be before the owners start clamoring for an 18th game. It will never stop. After all, they've got 3 more exhibition games to "bargain away".

"Why the NFL combine built a myth around QB hand size, a measurement that doesn't mean anything"

Quote:
An invite to the Senior Bowl followed, and shortly after landing in Mobile, Alabama, Allen strolled into a room full of NFL team reps who unceremoniously ordered him to hold up his throwing hand. Completely unaware and somewhat amused that hand size was even a thing, Allen halfheartedly offered up his hand without so much as straightening his digits. After all, he had lost a fumble a grand total of five times in four years at Arkansas,

Bummer. I really liked that show. Recorded it and watched it nearly every day. Thought they had great chemistry together, and Jones has a devastatingly quick wit.

I think ESPN has so many sports debate shows that this got lost in the crowd...looks like Pablo got the news while he was at the hospital for the birth of his first child...

NFL analyst Tony Romo agrees to $17M per year to stay at CBS

Tony Romo has agreed to the largest sports analyst contract in TV history with CBS that will prevent him from reaching the free-agent market where ESPN was poised to aggressively bid for him...the contract will pay Romo around $17 million per season, which is more than double the previous high of John Madden’s $8 million per year...

good Lord, $17M a year??...is any analyst worth that much $$?
