The idea of a 17th game is terrible if you ask me (To bad nobody does).

I do like the suggestion of an extra bye week during the season. I wouldn't mind seeing the preseason dropped to three games, but I think two is to few. While superstars certainly could deal with a 2 game preseason, it is an excellent opportunity for younger players to get time, fight for spots and improve.

Make the regular season 19 weeks
Cut 2 Preseason Games
Add 1 International week for all teams
Keep 8 homes games for all teams
Add 2nd bye week in for all teams

Everyone wins

Guys, the home/away thing is not a problem with an extra week, because it would be 8 home game, 8 away game, and 1 foreign game for all teams. Come on guys. And as many have mentioned, adding a bye and removing one or two weeks of preseason would completely make up for any injury concerns for ONE more game. I like the idea, do it.

I still don't like it. I'd rather keep in the US. Imagine a team flying over to London for a game. That's just too much. I don't like it in Canada because they have their own league for promoting the game, and Canadian fans pick up the Bills, Seahawks, and certain Midwest teams. I know that the CFL is not a top-notch league and is not widely popular, but still.

How about this: Find 16 international sites. Every team has week 1 at an international location, then there is a bye week for all teams. Then the season starts as normal. Instead of two preseason games you have an international game and a bye week.

OH MY GOSH! 17 weeks, 8 home, 8 away, and 1 out of country, for EVERY team, ok? Division games IS a good point, because the schedule making formula would be messed up, so they'd have to randomly add one more team to each team's schedule, but it's certainly an easy thing to do.

You need to keep everything the same 16 games is good. I mean the Stats will be crazy and then you really couldn't judge anybody from the past to now if you had 17 games. 16 Games is perfect every game is really important except for may'be the last game, and adding another game is meaningless. Having games outside of the U.S is dumb also, unless they are preseason games because nobody cares about the preseason games.

Well back in the day, it was amazing that Jim Brown ran for all those 1000 yard seasons on a shorten schedule (1500 on a 12 game schedule, 1800 on a 14 game). If Brown got the full 16, he might still have the NFL rushing record.

Or he might of been injured due to the extra workload. Who knows.

I say we take over teh CFL, combine them into us, add all their 8 teams into 1 more division per conference, and add 1-2 more games total.

then it would truly be more of a "World Championship"

I'm all for international expansion and trying to take the game(the real game, not NFL Europe) to an global stage. But this isn't a good idea. Not only would you mess with the numbers, by adding more games you would remove some of the late week intensity that makes things interesting.
