Expanding to 18 is stupid. Injuries, ripping the record books to shreds (again), making each game less important... Stupid. It's perfect as-is, don't change anything.

And I LOVE the pre-season. For a website for draftniks, it's sad to see so many people hating on the pre-season so much. It's the best opportunity teams have to figure out who's going to fill out their depth chart.

If the NFL were to add two games, I bet teams would get an additional bye as well. If you're one of the people who is worried about more injuries, would this influence your view?

I'm all for anything that will extend the football season another 2 weeks. The more football the better. And the way these players are getting paid I don't really care about them getting two more weeks work.

Well if it did happen I would want another bye week but I still say the season is long enough and like someone said before if it's not broke don't fix it

I see no reason to change it, the current system is perfectly fine as it is. Changing the amount of regular season games creates messes with salary, records, etc but I think the biggest factor is the injuries. Shortening the preseason doesn't do a ton because starters obviously generally get held out of the majority of the time in those games anyways. In this case I think the "if it's not broken, don't fix it" rule really applies. It would certainly be fun to see more games, but I just think the system is fine and with all of the precautions they're taking with player safety this would be a bit hypocritical and counterproductive. Still, I think the fact that there are no real issues with the current 16 game regular season schedule is enough not to change it.

Wouldn't mind shortening the preseason anyways, though.

I'm sure that when the NFL switched from 14 to 16 games, critics thought "If it's not broke, why fix it?" That was back when they had 6 preseason games! So basically, they took two of those needless preseason games and converted them to real games. I say we do it again.

Football is far and away my favorite sport, so I wouldn't complain of adding two more games. But still I'm not playing the sport so I wouldn't want to make it harder on the guys already doing it. If there is an 18 game season the wear and tear on a player would definitely add into the equation right now. As it is players prepare for a full 16 game season with the possibility of the playoffs and Super Bowl. For about a decade these players could possibly see more injuries than normal, until a newer generation of players is used to that preparation.

I personally wouldn't vote for it, but I definitely wouldn't disagree with it. You have to take into account that in time the players will adjust to the schedule. Either way it goes we as fans win. If the schedule is expanded we get to see more football. Who wouldn't like to see that? If they keep it as is then we still keep a schedule system that's works very efficiently. 16 games plus playoffs is enough for me to get my "fix," but it keeps me yearning for more. lol

To add to the record breaking discussion, all records get broken at some point. Adding more games still won't change the importance of the records. Look at Jim Brown's numbers. He never played a 16 game season, yet he still is one of the all time leading rushers. It was his consistency that keeps him up there. 9 years of greatness is still something you rarely see from a running back this day in age. Most of them have about 3 or 4 years of glory, 2 more average years after that then they're done. It would be the same with an 18 week schedule. Someone will come along and have a legendary 10 year run to a record, but they would've gotten there whether it be 16 or 14 games because they were just that damn good.

A lot of records and a lot of players will break really quickly in fact if they increase the season they'd probably need to increase the roster size, plenty of times I've seen teams down to stop gaps at certain positions. Brown at CB for example, Nick Goings at RB in 04 for the Panthers, Vinny Testaverde rehired a year into retirement to play QB due to injury in 07.

2 more games is going to hurt a few teams.

... what sense would that make? If you have two extra playoff games, assuming you mean with a wildcard-like system that you'd add 8 more teams to teh mix. Meaning that 20/32 will make the playoffs. If you ment two actual rounds extra, that would mean all 32 teams will go into the playoffs, making the wildcards absolete. You can't just randomly add games without ruining the entire setup. With a 32 team league, you can't have more than 12 teams (37%) making the playoffs. If you increase that percentage, the playoffs lose their exclusivity.

I think 4 preseason games is the perfect amount. If there wasn't four preseason games, I bet the Bills would have cut Fred Jackson.

If its about money so be it. The players are getting paid, even when injured they are getting payed. Now the owners and commissioner wants theirs.

Or it could be another thing to hang over the player's head for the CBA.

I'm for 17 games, and 3 preseason games. Send one game out of the country, a few to Mexico, Canada, 1 or 2 to Japan and London, 1 to Germany.

The only way I'd be in favor of this is if they expanded rosters, 53 isn't enough with the amount of injuries that will probably be suffered...The fan, and fantasy football nut in me wants more games, but the realistically it makes you wonder how injured your favorite team would be after 18 games, then imagine not getting a bye that next week either if you make the playoffs.


First they want to make teams fly all across the country to play games, now adding games, their getting a little out of control too fast for my taste.


Oh and I'm definately not in favor of decreasing the pre-season, I actually enjoy seeing those bottom of the roster guys fighting for a spot, the starters need to be taken out early anyway...But those games are fun for me to watch especially when you have some young guys your trying to see who can contribute, you shorten the pre-season and you barely have time to evaluate your younger guys.

I agree.

I also think we should leave the regular season alone.
I love the exact format of everything. I don't like the idea.
The players are going to want more money for playing more games.
the roster size will have to increase to accomadate (sp?) for injuries and fatigue
Too much of a mess... just leave it as is
