I alluded to this topic in a previous post, but the discussions are heating up, so here we go again. NFL and union officials met Wednesday to address the possibility of adding two more regular-season games to the league's schedule.
NFL teams now play at least 20 games -- four preseason games and 16 regular-season games -- per season. Of course, those teams good and/or lucky enough to qualify for the postseason play more.
In the aforementioned recent discussions, the idea of playing two (not four) preseason games and 18 (not 16) regular-season games has been gaining momentum.
There are some obvious concerns about scheduling 18 regular-season games, including increasing the risks of injuries and limiting the development of young players who value preseason playing time. Is it all really worth watching the Browns and other teams play two more meaningful games a year?
You tell me.
