So we’ve added the Monarchs and the Aztecs. Now let’s look at realignment.
I’m for a complete change-up based upon geography. To make the schedule fair with now 34 teams in the league you need to go to a no conference, 4 divisions schedule. A team plays everyone in your division once, and another division once. Playoffs will be the division winners plus the next best 8 teams. Division winners get a bye, best versus worst record. Let’s see the breakdown:
Lawrence Taylor Division (east)
Roger Staubach Division (south)
Walter Payton Division (north)
Jerry Rice Division (west…kinda)
There it is. Let all the NFL GM’s see the awesomeness that is this plan. Overall it makes things awesome and will help to fit the new teams in. Once we get 2 more expansion teams then we can look at a different setup.
Realistically the Monarchs will be added to the AFC east, the Dolphins will move to the NFC south for logistics. LA Aztecs will go to the NFC west, the St Louis Rams will move to the AFC south for logistical reasons.
