There should actually be fewer. Personally I think only the best teams should be in the playoffs, proven in a shorter season and I feel the old 12 game schedule was fine. Injuries are getting worse, not better.
Injuries ain’t got nothing to do with this move. It’s purely money. NFL can make extra money on 17 game seasons, and on adding another wild card playoff team. The players can share in some of that money.
Sadly true, Basically in all sports. I can remember when the to best pitchers in baseball, Koufax and Drysdale had to go on strike together to get 100,000 dollars. for a season. Times change.
