Ideas for an Improved NFL from the RotoWire Press Box

RotoWire readers, we hope that you and the folks you care about are doing as well as possible during this unprecedented time. As the days and weeks roll on minus the sports we normally cover, we thought it might be interesting to ask members of our NFL coverage crew to offer up a few of their ideas regarding how they'd improve the league if put in charge of it. 

Not surprisingly, the group came up with some pretty cool suggestions, which are posted below. Who knows? Perhaps we'll see some of them implemented down the road, especially if RotoWire has any subscribers out there with the pull to pitch them to those who actually do run the league! 

In the meantime, take care one and all...

  • Stop trying to put more teams in the playoffs just to make more money. There's a reason these guys go to war for 16, er 17, regular-season games. (Editor's note: this suggestion was submitted prior to Tuesday's announcement of an expanded postseason)
