I wonder if they are gonna expand rosters at all.

Almost will have to, especially to help teams with older players.

Not a fan. Single season records are going to be destroyed. I just don’t see a reason for it expect league wanting more money. 

Yeah, in a way. In a way they already ruined season records with rule changes so passing/receiving stats were already tarnished.

I'd probably rather just go with an 18 game season and eliminate preseason. That is a take I have never had before but we got a preview last year and it seemed fine. Expand rosters to allow players a chance to prove themselves since they couldn't in preseason.

All things being equal I'd stay with a 16 game season with 4 preseason games. If they are going to 17 anyway may as well keep it an even number and add a second bye and eliminate preseason games. Owners win. Fans win. Players... well

Not so sure.

Think I still might have two preseason games.

That allows players to ramp things up to game speed, which they do not see in camp.

And coaches to see how players who looked good in camp look at game speed.

they need to expand the roster and also create 2 bye weeks for teams. It would create an extra week for the NFL to be king of TV. 17 games in 19weeks

Ug.  I read months ago that if this happened it would come with a bunch of other rules.  One being that no player plays more than 16 games.

 

I hope that doesn’t happen.  Imagine trying to decide as a coach when to make Baker a healthy scratch, Myles, Ward, any of the fab 5 on the oline.  Obviously you would want to pick a game that you think is an easier win to sit some, but you don’t want to sit too many and give up an upset.

That is a dumb rule.  I think they should consider having these games at a neutral site.

A rule determining that the player SHOULD NOT play the extra game? Why even expand the schedule then? Idiotic. 

Quite.

But it should make for interesting game planning strategy and reaction to it.

Imagine: We are going to bench our QB, or stud DE, or stud CB or more than one of them against you.

What does that say to team that we are playing?

Good bulletin board stuff, if nothing else, I imagine.

Limiting a player to 16 is just a dumb idea.  Whoever thought of that should feel bad.

17, 18, idgaf, just make sure it’s fair for everyone.  Add a second bye and expand rosters to 60 with 50 active on game day.  Keep the IR rules.
