View Full Version : Should the regular season be longer?

There is an idea criculating now that maybe the regular season should be 18 games and pre-season be just 2.

For those who are as old as I am, the regular season used to be 14 games and pre-season 6. The NFL cut it back due to higher TV ratings and to cut down in the number of season ending injuries during the pre-season.

I don't think it will ever be 18-2. The coaches are totally against it because it doesn't give them time to evaluate.

I'd rather see both the regular season and pre-season shortened.

Too many injuries.

In fact, right after the Steelers beat the Patriots and Eagles back-to-back in October (and right after losing Casey Hampton for the season), I thought they should've played the Super Bowl right then.
