NFLPA is in favor of expanding playoffs
Just the other day Eric Winston the former Arizona Cardinals offensive tackle and new NFLPA president stated that he did not want the NFL to go to 18 game season. I am pretty sure most NFL players would agree to that.
Well today when he was asked about t’expanding the postseason he changed his tune.
“For the record, I don’t put expanded playoffs in the same category as 18 games,” Winston told SportsRadio 610 in Houston. “We’re talking about one extra game possibly, for two teams or four teams total, if you would count both AFC [and] NFC.”
Since his job is to put the most money in his players pockets, I’m pretty sure expanding the playoffs could do that for over 200 players. Winston also went on to talk about how the NFL seeds their playoff scenarios.
“I’m a big fan of radically changing a lot of the playoffs.” Winston said. “Take Green Bay for example. This year hosting a 12-4 San Francisco 49ers team when I think Green Bay was [8-7-1]. I don’t agree with that. I’d like them to not only add a game, I’d like to see them actually take a hard look here and say, ‘What are we really doing here, what are we really rewarding?’”
