  • 18 Game Season

    How is the NFL gonna make an 18 game season work? Look at injuries for every team on just a 16 game season. The product is getting watered down with 32 Teams now as it is.

          This is the worst idea. Not only will records no longer mean anything (60 TD's and 6000+ passing yards anyone?), but the teams will be decimated by injuries. Back ups will be playing everywhere, and the first few games will be sloppier than ever (due to the shortened off-season).

          Shorter careers, worthless stats.

          More is not better. The NFL is just right, because there's closure, and yet you always want more. Two more regular season games is ridiculous. Shorten pre-season to 3, or even 2 games, and LEAVE THE SEASON ALONE.

              I agree with you, I just think it's inevitable unfortunately...

                I think the lack of practice time is affecting that as well.

                    Weren't they also talking about changing the post season around as well to have more teams in the playoffs? Why can't they just leave the darn game alone? They have already turned it into WHIMP ball. They are ruining the game one rule at a time.

                    The NFL has already turned an hour long game into a 4 hour affair. Oh the days of watching football without 100 commercial breaks during the game.

                      Yep, they are talking about adding more playoff teams. If it isn't broke don't fix it.

                            These are mine. I can't stand PI calls anymore. Everyone constantly looks for a flag. Just heave the ball up and you're likely to get a flag. Especially the ones in the EZ...game changing. I hate what these calls have done to the game.

                            Limited padded practices..,look at the lack of tackling. Players don't know how to tackle anymore.

                            Defenseless receiver... Just because it looks hard doesn't mean it is. Look at that horrible call on DRC. Shoulder hit. What the hell is a defender to do. Let him catch the ball?

                              When they completed the last collective bargaining agreement, I though the 18 game idea was put on hold.
                              I suppose it's always a threat, but maybe some intelligence will prevail? Don't laugh.
                              The NFL is pretty much saturated right now. Any expansion to the regular season and/or postseason would spoil it. One of the bonuses that teams compete for, is the first round byes. (#1, #2 seed). An expansion of the postseason, would eliminate that. So a 10-6 divisional winner would be on par with a 14-2 team. Expanding the postseason would put less emphasis on the regular season. Expanding to an 18 game schedule, would further tarnish the regular season.
