I'm bored. I was thinking that maybe the conferences could re-align divisions in order to save on travel time and create some new rivalries. What do you guys think of this?

SOUTHERN CONFERENCE

Atlantic Division- Baltimore, Carolina, Washington, Tennessee

Southeast Division- Miami, Tampa Bay, Jacksonville, Atlanta

South Division- Kansas City, Dallas, New Orleans, Houston

Pacific Division- Las Vegas, Arizona, LA Rams, LA Chargers


NORTHERN CONFERENCE

Northeast Division- New England, Buffalo, NY Giants, NY Jets

Central Division- Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Philadelphia

Great Lakes Division- Indianapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Green Bay

Northwest Division- Denver, Minnesota, Seattle, San Francisco.

You know, those make better sense than what the NFL has now, but it would screw up the rivalries developed over the years. It even takes consideration of the Raiders when they move again to Los Angeles or Oakland.

Those rivalries don't have to be screwed up. Here's what you do. Increase the regular season schedule to 18 games a year and reduce the number of preseason games to 2 a year. Then you schedule like this:

Home and home with the teams in your division, and rotate with one division in your own conference and two in the opposite one. That way, you're guaranteed to play each team at least once every three years.

This will also push the Super Bowl back into President's Day weekend, giving fans the national holiday they want on the day after the Super Bowl.

Additionally, keep the playoff seedings the same, but throw in this little change: If a wild card team has a better record than the division winner they are facing, the wild card team gets home field advantage.

I love this idea.

I think you would need to break up the two NY City teams and the two LA teams. Other than that, I love it!
