Goodell Takes A Hit
I don't like linking back to S(e)PIN, but this says much that I believe...

"As for the 18-game schedule, we have said we will do that the right way. That includes safety."


The NFL has given players a week off between games for decades to allow their bodies to recover from games. Nowadays, there's nothing wrong with a game four days after the traditional Sunday game.

The players are bigger, stronger and faster than they've ever been. Teams can't keep enough healthy players to compete during a 16-game schedule.

Adding two more games is just dumb. Or greedy.

Silliness such as this is among the reasons Goodell isn't too popular right now with players or fans.

Boy ain't that the truth

Doing it the right way would have to include doing away with 2 of the 4 pre season games, and adding to the roster limit.

They play 20 now with out he play offs. Converting 2 pre season games to regular season wouldnt be that big of a deal.. Seriously. It would add maybe 3 quarters of football to the starters.
