Random thoughts on the NFL season.
Everyone that saw the game last night saw offenses way behind the defenses on opening night. This isn’t a new trend. It’s been happening for years. It will continue as stars play less and less in the preseason. Injuries are one everyone’s mind and I agree it’s a concern. There have been proposals to extend the season 2 games and eliminate 2 preseason games. The players union have balked at even the notion of playing 18 games. So are games like last night fair to fans? Is paying $500-2000 a seat at Jerry’s place to watch eventual 37 cuts for 2 home preseason games. Or 2-3 games into a season before the offense finally clicks. My proposal? 2 preseason games and extend the playoffs 2 more weeks. I know it may water down the playoffs a bit but wouldn’t you rather watch two 8-8 teams play in December than 2 meaningless games in August. 95% of the cuts are almost assured after 2 weeks of training camp. So judging talent for 3 months cannot be and argument for extended the preseason. What’s everyone’s thoughts?
