Default 18 game schedule?!?! What does ISH think of this?

There has been a lot of chatter about this recently, what are the pros/cons of this?

Personally, I don't like it. What's wrong with the 16? This is a nation that goes crazy for the gameday Sunday, and I think the more games you add, the less meaning you attach to each one.

Then you have the issue of injuries. 2 more games=more chances for injuries. Guys will be really run down by the time the playoffs roll around.

and what about records?

This just seems like messing with someone just for the sake of change. Nothing more. Noone I know has ever said "boy, they sure do need to change that schedule!"

Wasn't the thought process that they would cut 2 preseason games and add them to the regular season? 4 preseason games are too much but I like the regular season at 16.

They don't need 4 preseason games

16 is good, it would mess with the single season records adding 2 more games

I completely understand how a lot of purists would hate it from the standpoint of records. But in football, probably more than any other sport, records are made to be broken. So there's that.

As a fan, awesome, more games the better. As a person, it's kind of gross. Is the 16 game season broken? Obviously not. There's no reason to do this other than money.

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!!

I would actually LOVE for them to make 2 of the preseason games official...

there is no way in hell 2 extra games is going to cheapen anything for the NFL...

the popularity of the NFL is too strong, they would double them if the players could handle it...

18 games > 16 games

both literally and figuratively...

btw, for those worried about records and history, this wouldn't be the first time...

the 1972 Dolphins went undefeated, 17-0...including the playoffs...

that is because back then there were only 14 games a year...

I understand they've added more games before. But just leave it at 16. People say that 1000 yards per season isn't that much of an accomplishment as it used to be. Could you imagine how "inflated" the stats would be for an 18 game season?

I LOVE football and the NFL. And more football is good, but I'd rather it just stay at 16.

after just a few seasons, you wouldn't view them as inflated anymore...

the game has to evolve for the better at some point in time...can't just go an eternity with less games in an effort to keep stats down...

making the fans happy should be priority #1...

But the fans aren't unhappy. It's not like the NBA where it's becoming a handful (if that) of title contenders and then everyone else. Nothing needs to change. I agree fan contentment should be #1, but aren't we all already pretty content? At some point the potential harm it does to the players supersedes giving more to the fan, it has to. With all the stuff in recent years about concussions and the toll football takes on the body and the NFL seemingly finally starting to get proactive about it, adding games is hypocrisy at best.

well I don't agree that just because we love it now doesn't mean that we still can't change things for the better...

but yeah, player health would be a legit concern here...

although, they aren't letting up on hits in the preseason, but the starters are only playing half a game at most...

seems like it is the RBs that should be the most concern here...alot of the other positions could add a couple games no problem...

You know what's even better than football on Sunday? Having football on Sunday and other days, too.

They're not forcing you to watch every game. You can always catch the highlights later.

Who cares? Really? It's not like the records are held in that high regard. Many of the records are from the '80s on up. It's not like they're long standing records.

Or, they could get more playing time to other players.

I agree with jackass on this stuff...

18 games and - 2 preseason games seems like a no-brainer to me...
