If anything, the NFL should reduce the amount of games played.

They're already seeing diminishing returns on 16 for the first time in years. But nah, gotta chase the high at the cost of any sort of stability despite all signs pointing to the product beginning to decline.

All of you all obsessed with old records would still have us playing 14 games a year. Its really silly. 

Records are meant to be broken. Dont be the old man yelling at the clouds.

An extra bye week would be appreciated, but owners want that cash money

Remove one quarter of football, have 21 games with three quarters instead of 16 games with 4 quarters. 

That way owners can sell tickets to 5 more games a year and players play less actual time. 

I'm brilliant. 

Chokers rejoice!

the extra game would have be on a neutral site, right? 8 home 8 away 1 neutral. that would be fair. I wonder how they would decide on who plays who tho prolly use some kind of rotation

Well then they wouldn't be "quarters".

This is going to mess up the bulk stat records...

Which have already been destroyed over the years by all sorts of factors, mainly in game rule changes.

I know Macafee always brings up if they move it to 17, they should have two bye weeks. No idea if that is actually in discussion too.

This is what the CFL does with their longer season. Makes a ton of sense.

I would assume it would be international. As for opponent, they could match conference by record. AFC #1 seed plays the NFC #1 seed. What would be really fun is if they created slates of rivalry or proximity games. They would never do it, but if Dallas got to play Pittsburgh or Houston every year, that would be awesome.

Leave it alone.

there’s no logical reason to do this, other than a few more bucks for the billionaires...

I like it the way it is now, but lets just entertain the idea.

Remove 2 preseason games. +1 regular season game +1 bye week.  Every team plays 8 home games, 8 away games, and 1 neutral site game.

Mahomes can shatter passing records now. I don't hate it.
