I was just reading an artical on NFL about 18 game season and so many peaple are against it. In my opinion i was thinking we should drop 2 preseson game and get rid of the bye week add that one game to regular season. That would give a trade off to the players who are against it.Dont know about everyone else but last cuple years I have felt preseason was 2 games to long and that teams tend to lose after a bye week and go on skids whats your guys thoughts on it?
16 games is enough for me. I start out watching every game I can. By week 8, I pretty much only watch 9er games and highlight shows. By week 14, I only watch the 9ers and pay attention to the playoff picture. I love watching the 9ers but I don't really need the extra two games. That's two more games to get injuries and I'd rather see healthy playoffs.
Those who want an 18-game season are selfish. You want more football; you want more sports entertainment.
The purpose of preseason football is for the coaches to evaluate and determine their best 45/53-man roster (active/total). If you take away 2 preseason games then the coaches will have less opportunity to evaluate and that will adversely impact football games... perhaps including 49er games.
Like so many have already said... if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Leave well enough alone.
