While many assume the NFL’s playoff expansion plan is a “when, not if” situation, it’s not something that’s happening without some serious discussion.
While Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has said he’s in favor of it (and as the owner of a perennial 8-8 team, why not?), there are others who aren’t.
Giants president John Mara told Sal Paolantonio of ESPN that he was against boosting the playoff field from 12 to 14 teams.
“I’m in the minority. I’m against it,” Mara said.
He might be in the minority, but he’s part of the old, influential line of owners, and there might be more who think the way he does.
