FanNation | Truth&Rumors | Goodell considers 18-game schedule
At the owners meeting in May, the quality of the league's preseason was discussed, specifically how some preseason games are a poor reflection of the NFL product. Commissioner Roger Goodell is keeping the issue in the news, most recently telling reporters at Bengals camp that the league is "actively evaluating" whether to add a regular-season game and cut the preseason from four games to three. Goodell then took it one step further, saying he also wouldn't rule out 18 regular-season games and only two preseason contests.
I would like to see this happen. I believe they need preseason, but not as many as they do now. Cut it in half, and add two more games to the regular season. I'd like to see more AFC teams play NFC teams. We could see potential Superbowl type games during the season, and that would be awesome.
