    Forget the injury issue. As a high school player I had seasons were we played 10 games and others with 12. Same thing in college. After the season I felt no different. And that's coming from someone who had plenty of nagging injuries (from day 1 to day 100). So as a high school player (which many can relate to) you can manage the difference, no problem. Look at it this way; 18 games changes those 1,000 yard rushers/receivers into nothing special. We look at 1,000 yard receivers as starters, same for backs. Now think of how many of those would be running around with an 18 game season. Either way I don't care. 16 games, cool. 18 games, cool too but not necessarily better. It's already tough enough comparing Joe Namath to Peyton Manning since they're from different generations, so will throwing more games add more issues to an already hard debate? Like I said, I don't think the injuries would be an issue. As of now they play 20 games; 4 preseason, 16 regular season. It would still be 20, but with instead of 4 lousy games it would be just 2.

    Before we see an 18 game regular season I would like to see a rookie cap.

    Well you said "if"...

    Goodell already said they would do that if they switched it. I'm just messin' with you, but I was getting tired of saying that.

    Preseason is broke. Make two of them count. Sounds better already.

    As much as I dislike paying the same price for pre-season tickets as I do for regular season games, I actually think the current format is perfect.

    -It gives a lot of players on the fence 4 games to prove themselves on the field in a real game.
    -The current 16-game structure, as someone else already pointed out, makes for a perfect schedule rotation.
    -As much as I'd love to watch NFL games 365 days a year, sometimes when you are only given a smaller dose of what you love, it makes it that much more enjoyable.

    However, as a season ticket holder paying for games, lets have 0 pre-season games and 20 regular :)

    dropping to 2 preseason games would be fine for now IMO. The single home preseason game would be a zero anxiety warmup too the season, but only one of them thankfully

    Love football with a passion however I'm totally against this. I am going by 18 regular season and 2 preseason games. Don't think it's enough time for teams to get ready and dont how are they going to determine what 2 other teams you play? The current system seems good to me.
