  1. Random Packer News & Notes

    Heard a new Jermichael Finley story today. My coworker is eskimo brothers with him. While he was already married, he slept with a Green Bay Hooter's waitress. That Hooters waitress went to East Troy HS with my buddy. He got to meet Finley, including riding in his limo where he offered my friend booze. He was 20 at the time.

    But they are putting themselves at higher risk each year. They will argue the NFL should pay them a higher percentage or offer other considerations.
  3. How the NFL should get to an 18 Game Schedule

    Subtract one preseason game. Turn that into a bye week. Add two weeks to the season, you are talking about middle of hockey and basketball season.... Not a lot of competition considering neither of those leagues is even a good watch until the playoffs.

    The players union will oppose making more money and more members for their union simultaneously? While no individual already in it has to do anything more than they already do?
  5. How the NFL should get to an 18 Game Schedule

    Only Corey Linsley made it through all 16 games last year. Linsley 15. Evans 14. Bakh 12. Bulaga/Spriggs/etc. If you played straight best OL possible the first 16 weeks, last year if we had a 17th game our starting OL under this idea woulda been Bakh, Taylor, C, Evans, McCray.

    What do you think is stopping them from doing that right now? Like seriously they can make that happen, and make more money. I’m gonna watch different games during the bye week. There’s advertising dollars there if they want it. The players health benefits. Everyone’s family lives stand to benefit. Is it just a fear of the season being longer?
  7. How the NFL should get to an 18 Game Schedule

    I’m not sure you’d notice so much. LIS, only 12 QBs started every game last year. 8 RBs, 6 WRs. By week 8, our team is starting Knile Davis, and by the playoffs we are starting Ladarius Gunter. You are getting more starters for 16 games and developing the younger guys those weeks they are particularly banged up. I don’t see a way the time to heal doesn’t help the human body. The league needs QB Development badly. If we had what I propose we probably see Hundley a year earlier and know he’s as useful as a poopy flavored lollipop. You could also play all division and conference games prior to the end week 16.

    You’ll make an extra 10 Million dollars a game in profit.
  9. How the NFL should go to an 18 Game Schedule

    If you have to sit your star in the middle of a playoff hunt, you probably should've gotten out front when your star was playing instead of needing to win down the stretch. Everyone has to play by that rule. You'd have to expand rosters in conjunction, allow kickers and punters to kick all 18 games.
  10. How the NFL should get to an 18 Game Schedule

    I don't see a way the money gets thinner. Revenue was 440 Mil in 2016. If you are making 20 Million dollars a game via all forms of revenue, it's fair to say we can add two games, make 40 mil, owners keep 20, that's an additional 20 million for players. You can cover the extra bodies needed with that. I agree Brett Hundley is bad football. But he was the end of the bad football spectrum. Nick Foles dazzled. It's a two way street, and it's competitively balanced. No one will bench starters early in the season because if they are injured later, they will want to use the injured time as the two weeks off. Could a team scratch a healthy starter early on? Sure. But that'd be ballsy. You aren't going to sit Aaron Rodgers week 3 against the Bears just so you can have him week 18 in a tougher matchup because if he gets injured week 17 you'll have started him 15 of the 16 games he could've been heathy for. The strategy for every team would still be to play the best healthy players every week until you have to use a reserve. Later in the season, sure, coaches will be picking games to gear up for. But everyone will pretty much be in the same boat. Parity-wise You'll actually see what backup players can do more often, which will lead to better play overall. It'd certainly showcase QB play more often. It'll also create controversy at positions. It'll expose weak points in teams. It'll give teams a reason to move players into different roles. It'll also help level the playing field for injuries. Only 12 QBs started all 16 games last year. Only 8 RBs. Only 6 WRs. The only position you'll have a noticeable drop off those two weeks is QB. Otherwise you are adding games for stars to play in once they are healthy late in the season.

    You absolutely expand rosters but the economics won’t really change. Owners will make more profit. Fans get an 18 game season. The pool of money to players increases. More players get the minimum. Players in general make more but the biggest names will get the highest % increase. It increases development. Exclude Punters and Kickers.
  12. How the NFL should go to an 18 Game Schedule

    I honestly don’t understand why they don’t add a bye week right now. It’s not like I’m not gonna watch regular season football if it’s available.
  13. How the NFL should go to an 18 Game Schedule

    You don’t think getting to watch your backups is interesting? It’s only 2 games, most players miss that already. It’ll actually provide MORE opportunity to see stars play. QB1 has to miss 2 weeks a year for injury? No problem, you’re still getting 16 starts out of him. It also levels the playing field when it comes to the injury bug to some degree. It’d lead to more caution with injuries as well, particularly concussions and late season injuries. I do have a small amount of fear of the last two games of the season being drastically different because some great players need to sit out. But there would also be more separation in the standing by the last two weeks.
  14. I posted this in the NFL General forum but I wanted to get a few guys opinions from here. Obviously the fastest route to dramatically improve the NFL’s revenue is to add games. The NFL would love to add 10-12% to their revenue by doing so. The players, despite the fact that they would be given that same 10-12% raise under the current CBA, do not feel that’s in their best interest due to, for the most part, health concerns. The NFL and NFLPA, will forever be at odds over the health risk. They have already neutered practices, gone sometimes even confusing lengths to lower concussions, engaged in several courtrooms, and kickoffs are set up to essentially not exist. So if the NFL wants an 18 game schedule but the players don’t want to play 18 regular season games, why doesn’t each player simply be REQUIRED to sit out 2 games? There will be three ways to meet that required amount. First, obviously if you have already appeared in 16 games, you must sit out until the postseason. Second, if you have been inactive any game do to injury you may continue appearing in games until you have been active for 16, plus the postseason. Lastly, a team can decide to rest you any week. 1. Would the parties agree to that? Why or why not? 2. Would you like that? Why or why not? Do you think it would add great drama to the league? 4. Do you think it would lead to greater parity with the additional player development? 5. Do you think it would improve player health?
