gregstephens Posted March 28, 2009 Report Share Posted March 28, 2009 So, they are kicking around a 17 or 18 game schedule. I like it if it shaves a game or two off the preseason. However, isn't 16 games hard on the bodies as it is? Look at the injuries that have abounded around the league (see Bengals) just over the past few seasons.I think it further:a)reduces the career expectancy of running backsb)increases the need for all teams to switch to a quality two-running back systemc)cuts against a team like the Bengals that (apparently) has conditioning issues to begin withd)calls for an increase for both the salary cap and the number of active players a team has to have on the rostere)pumps up more revenue for the owners that not all of them (see SoP) will use for the good of the teamf)calls for an expansion of the post season to include eight teams per conferenceg)puts the Super Bowl into early Marchh)calls for an expanded draft, thus possibly diluting overall quality of playersi)calls for an expansion into two more cities (see LA)Discuss.....
