I like the idea of playoff expansion. But I was concerned when I read further and learned that part of the proposal would give just the top seed in each conference a first-round bye.
That's too great of an advantage for one team.
If the NFL is serious about expanding, I think it would be better to add two more teams in each conference. Then you have everyone play on the opening weekend, similar to what we see in the NBA and NHL.
