Re: 18 game schedule?!?! What does ISH think of this?
I say NO! Just elminate one (or two) of the preseason games. There doesn't need to be 18 games. They'll start putting more games on Thursday and Saturday night, and like mlh said, that'd take away from the aurora of SUNDAY FOOTBALL! There's NOTHING better than watching football ALL day Sunday, from noon to 11 pm. I don't mind the Thursday/Saturday night games later on in the season...but I wouldnt want it to become an every week thing.
And, like already mentioned, it would totally screw up all the records. Now there'd be like 3 RBs per season potentially racking up 2000 yards a season. Not to mention the passing records that Brees and Manning would break in the first 18 game season. It'd be ridiculous.
Just take away a preseason game or two and leave it like it is. 16 games is perfect. Don't add two more games and end up with screwed up records and more injuries.
Also, players might get more exhausted and worn out and the playoffs might not be played at such a high level.
KEEP IT AT 16 GAMES!!
