Commissioner Roger Goodell revealed Wednesday that the league's competition committee will explore expanding the postseason field, and that could mean a heaping helping of mediocrity on wild-card weekend. "We'll look at probably 14 or 16 teams," he said.Interesting. I have no idea how they'd make a 14 team playoff field work, so if any expansion were to occur it would most likely be 16 teams. 16 playoff teams means half of the NFL's 32 teams would make the playoffs; we'd surely see a lot more 9-7 and 8-8 teams. Allowing some non-deserving teams in is a concern, but it will make the path to the Super Bowl more interesting and entertaining. And of course, I'm all for it if the Eagles make one of the final spots!
