Phil SimmsCorrespondent IDecember 26, 2012

The NFL has been discussing possible changes to the structure of the regular season and playoffs. The most recent proposed change involves expanding the playoffs to include more teams.

Adding teams to the playoffs could result in at least one additional week of playoffs. While exciting for the fans, this could greatly affect player health and safety.

Bleacher Report asked the Behind the Mic crew what they thought about the possible expansion of the NFL playoffs and what it would mean for the league and its players.
