    Default Shorten Pre-season?

    Well, I am trying to get some discussion in here since, after all the Edge talk has subsided, it has got quiet.

    The reason I bring up this is because I have heard that there is talk to shorten the pre-season and make the regular season longer.

    One of the reasons is because #1. Most coaches think it is too long already. And #2. If you shorten the pre-season, it decreases the chances of key players getting hurt.

    I think they should do it. Now, what is everyone else's thoughts?

    I would agree, they should cut the pre-season by at least 2 games, maybe more.

    I think shortening preseason to two games is an excellent idea. However, I do not think lengthening the season is a good idea at all.

    The way I heard this told, is that the season would increase in length by a couple of weeks, but no games would be added. Each team would get an additional bye-week or two in the middle of the season.

    That sounds like a good idea to me.

    I usually don't have any beef against the preseason length, but we're playing in 5 games this year...
