    I can't believe he would go and give this quote after we were eliminated on the final day of the regular season three years in a row.

    How can you have so little awareness?

    Yeah, you are right, his answer seemed so extemporaneous. What a out of left field question that had to be.

    Of course it is all about the money, that is our collective point? JJ somehow acted as if an 8-8 team (cough) could win a SB, then adding 4 more teams is necessary. I know he's a drunk, but he shouldn't cry to the media.

    Someone forced Jerry to utter that response, that was not what he meant to say, it was all hypothetical.

    Because fans in Texas have it a bit more easy. You have other Cowboys fans around and more often than not the non-Cowboys fan is the minority. I've lived there, and I've lived in other parts of the country. It's far more difficult being a Cowboys fan away from home..

    How about we go back to 28 teams, 2 conferences, 3 divisions each, with 5 playoff teams, instead?

    Oh oh oh oh, it's a Jon Mara idea! Maybe if he really pushes, he can get all the wildcard games to be touch.

    From a fan perspective: 4 more fan bases have a team in the playoffs. If their team was a top 2 in the division, they get to see their team play an additional game, though the risk increases of being eliminated before the Super Bowl, or losing it. History shows that it is not a big advantage to have a bye week though.

    From an owner perspective: More revenue

    From an NFLPA perspective: More revenue and more players receiving playoff checks.

    I don't think it's a bad idea.

    Exactly this isn't a Jerry thing.....this is a league thing! NFL has been talking about this for a few years!

    If I say Jerry is an absolute embarrassment again will I get another round of likes?

    He is.

    You know what to do.

    I put on Philly Sports Talk this morning to hear a little about tonight's game...and what's the first thing I hear?
    The hosts laughing at Jerry Jones for saying there should be more playoff teams.
    "And I don't suppose this has anything to do with the fact that the Cowboys rarely make it anymore", said one host. [group chuckles]

    I'd rather do this than add 2 games to the regular season.

    I think it would be reasonable to assume increasing the number of playoff teams is just a way to create a few more games (and their accompanying revenue) that Roger thinks might resonate with the owners, the union, fans, etc. Jerry opining on the subject after missing the playoffs four straight years probably was not the best way to present the idea to football fans.
