At the same time, I think we’re going to see an uptick in teams that sit starters for the final week. More spots means more teams will be locked into the tournament, and I think that’s going to lead to more of those scenarios where coaches elect to prioritize rest over seeding — especially since there’s only one bye to earn.

Optics are bad with owners doing a money grab while talking out of the other side of their mouth about player safety. So tired of sports being diluted by monetary incentives.

Absolutely this.

The CBA changes would be pitch-perfect for the Chiefs to have a dynasty capable team. Jones, Watkins and about improved IOL and LB core is a team dominant enough to almost even out the odds with an added game in the playoffs.

Would there be a record Mahomes wouldn’t obliterate under this format?

I hate the playoff changes, btw - but with Mahomes who even cares.

This new CBA is almost tailor made for our upcoming dynasty.

Huge expanded cap
Separate QB cap that limits the impact of QB salary
Only the top team gets a bye

Be excited about this stuff.
Adding games and further randomizing the playoffs is not good for any Chiefs dynasty (and that's exactly what this move does). Wasn't speaking on the rest of the CBA.

Teams are going to have to come to a rested Arrowhead every year with Andy having 2 weeks to prepare for them.

Dynasty time, baby.

Teams could still very easily lock themselves into the 2 seed before the final game and then they are just going to make it their own bye week by resting starters. So I think that aspect of it is going to level out somewhat many times.

Thatís not a guarantee by any means and this year proves that. We were lucky.

Lucky the Dolphins beat the Patriots. Lucky that Pat was not placed on IR after his knee was turned sideways.

Injuries happen all the time and a lot of that is pure luck. Last year we were lucky. This year it was the Ravens who didnít have any major injuries.

Playing another game is another opportunity for more injuries. If the players are smart, theyíll demand a 2nd bye week be added to the regular season.

These players bodies go through a ton and more players are retiring early. Adding more games does nothing for the good of the league except put money in owners pockets.

Yep. Dumb. 7 teams making the playoffs is too many. It cheapens it IMO.

This is a two-sided coin IMHO.

We can say we were lucky that Miami won, that Pat’s injury wasn’t worse... but I can just as easily say that other teams were lucky he (and our other stars) were hurt and missed games to begin with. Those injuries to star players directly correlated to 3 of our losses.

I could also say we were unlucky to deal with all of that, including Mahomes missing 2 games. Most teams still didn’t have the injury misfortune the Chiefs had — we were just fortunate enough to have our guys when it mattered most (outside of Jones and his freak calf injury—bad luck).

Thatís what sucks about this. We donít get injured like we were then we are the top seed.

I hate it that only one team gets a bye. Itís too big of an advantage and one seed is usually due to luck.

Youíre placing the 2 seed in the same boat as a 7 seed. A 14-3 team could be playing 3 games like a 9-7 team in this system.

Hate hate hate it. The format was damn near perfect and they ****ed it up.

The chances of getting a #1 seed every year are a lot less likely than getting a top 2 seed every year. There's no question that this change hurts the top teams like the Chiefs/Ravens and is better for the mediocre ones.

I don't have a problem with the NFL having first round byes but for just 1 team to get it is a garbage idea
One team in both the NFC & AFC, or just one team total from both?
