How would you go about improving the current NFL playoffs? While some people like it exactly the way that it is, others would like to see changes that range from minor tinkering to some bigger changes.

The playoffs have seen only a few changes in the last decade. The most recent notable change was altering the way that overtime would be played in the postseason.

Prior changes made to the playoffs included adding Wild Card teams, as well as altering how many divisions existed in the AFC and NFC. For a historical overview of changes with the NFL playoffs, here is a timeline link from profootballhof.com.

However the system has been tinkered with over the years, the bottom line is that the postseason is reserved to showcase whichever teams are playing the best football. Many great moments of NFL history are created in the playoffs, and that is why they continue to be so special. The drama that was witnessed in the divisional round this past weekend is a prime example of a special weekend of playoff football.

In this presentation, we will start out with a few minor idea suggestions and then we will introduce a concept that would be more of a major change.

As always, your feedback or comments regarding these ideas are encouraged and welcome.
