NFL Owners have proposed 18 game schedule, with a 16-game limit for each player
 

 
The idea is hardly new, but itís emergence as a formal concept in collective bargaining is.


Andrew Beaton of the Wall Street Journal reports that, as part of the NFLís push for 18 regular-season games, the league has advanced the possibility of an 18-game season with a per-player limit of 16 games per year.

That idea has been percolating for years; itís been the subject of multiple PFT stories, PFT Live discussions, and #PFTPM monologues.

Most recently, the topic was discussed during an interview with Hall of Fame head coach Tony Dungy last month, the video of which is attached to this blurb (the question is asked at the 9:37 mark).

The next day, Coach Dungy called after the show with another important observation: Some fans will revolt against an 18/16 approach. For example, this year the Browns play at Arizona in Week 15; itís Clevelandís once-per-eight-years trip to the desert. Browns fans in Phoenix who want (and who paid) to see Baker Mayfield, Odell Beckham, and Jarvis Landry play would be upset if they found out 90 minutes before kickoff that one or more of them is healthy, but not playing.

As to Mayfield and all other quarterbacks, the problem could be solved by an exception for that position, given the enhanced safety rules that apply to them. (Kickers, punters, holders, and long-snappers would/should get similar treatment.) Still, the NFL has plenty of stars who arenít quarterbacks, and plenty of fans would be plenty pissed off if they show up for a game hoping to see a star player who isnít playing because this is one of the two games that he wonít be playing.

The fact that the NFL would even suggest such a revolutionary concept, one that oozes with unintended consequences, shows how desperate the league is to expand the regular season ó and how effectively the NFL Players a*sociation has rebuffed those efforts. At this point, the league may get 18 games only by making the players a financial offer they canít refuse.

It would actually give players 3 weeks off in the 18 game season (including bye week)

I dont have the time to sit and read through an article, but they want to play two extra games but without some of their best players?? If so this is the worst idea iíve ever heard come from any sports league, ever

If youíre worried about injuries, just keep it at 16 games. Dont cheapen the product because owners are greedy.

MLB & NBA teams rest their stars all the time. Look at LeLoadmanagement & Kawhi last year.

This is stupid as hell.

So what if you need every game to get into the playoffs and depend on your starting QB, but you sit him for 2 games that you end up losing??



Naaaah, keep that. Y’all already making BILLIONS of dollars per year, but somehow you’re still finessing the whole world with being tax classified as a non-profit


Chilllllll. 16 games is cool

And for the length of their seasons, that works great.

Changing the schedule by 2 games doesn't give us the benefit we see from long NBA and MLB schedules, while still managing to water down the product for the two games that were added... worst of both worlds.

That’s a terrible idea... the appealing part about the NFL now is the idea that every game counts in the regular season

I dont follow NBA, so I have no idea how much they were rested. But they play like 82 games right? Many more ďmeaninglessĒ games. Anyway, i highly doubt this will go through. I see this as a way of trying to get ahead of the whole contract/pay gap there is between NFL and NBA and players starting to voice their opinions. This would give the owners an advantage in contract negotiations since players are Ďrestedí

Dumb idea… unless there’s no preseason. Only way I’d be ok with this is if they guarantee all of their contracts.

As long as the viewership and attendance is still sky high(which it would be) it makes sense.

the rumblings surrounding MLB & NBA are about shortening the season. NFL has the opposite problem. Fans want more.

somehow QBs will be exempt and so that means pay for only 16 games max?

Dumb sh*t, so if teams are battling for a playoff spot at the end of a season you got to rely on all your backups to play.

It brings in more revenue while giving players more time off.

Sounds like a cash grab to bring more revenue in. They would have to shorten the pre-season and we already know how sloppy those games are.

You guys can cry and complain about this all you want, but at the end of the day if the NFL is giving us more football then you n*ggas will watch and enjoy it

Same fans that complain about this are the same ones that cried about Thursday night football every week but always tune in to watch the games

So basically remove 2 preseason games and just make the regular season games.

They don't realize that this fu*ks up the math behind the schedule. More games would make it possible for teams to clinch playoff spots earlier. If the Patriots clinch by week 13, Brady going on vacation til the playoffs. So now these dummies would have 5 games getting low ratings and losing money instead of just the preseason.

Not if your starting QB sat out first 2 weeks.
Not of he sat out mid season against a weaker team.

Would work well for Garroppolo this year.
Strategies of sittin one RB while letting another get burn is exactly what the Hawks did last year anyway.

Could make things very interesting
