    If you were Paul Tagliabue...

    What changes would you like to see in the NFL?

    1. Drop 2 games from the preseason

    2. This should have been Superbowl weekend---it's dragged too far out as far as I'm concerned. I
    love the NFL, but, this is getting ridiculous. Superbowl in
    February? Sunday's games should
    have been at approx. noon and
    three.

    Somehow change league rules regarding stripping the ball.

    The intentional strip has snowballed over the last few years into the main defensive strategy by many teams. I don't remember it being like this years back. It used to be...just play the game and fumbles will happen. Now every defensive player is targeting the ball and trying to knock it out. Maybe it's just me but I think it cheapens the play of the game.

    Am I the only one who has noticed this large increase in the stripping strategy?

    I like the fact that they try to strip the ball, but I wish they would just tackle the guy as opposed to letting him gain an extra 15 yards!! I don't think that it cheapens the game, it is just teams trying to get the advantage (in turnovers)!

    I know what you are saying (I do like it when we get a fumble recovery from a strip) but I guess I like the old school way of play better.

    But also, in addition to taking away from tackling fundamentals defensively, it can lead to things like that clothesline strip attempt by the Jag defender on the pack's ferguson that put him in the hospital.

    Oh well, the game has changed and I'm sure it will keep on changing.

    The number of games is fine, but yeah, they should take away that extra week before the Super Bowl. There's way too much hype built up in two weeks and most of the time the game doesn't live up to it. Sometimes it does, but not always.

    I'm saying maybe the game will live up to the hype, but it doesn't always, so the league should definitely take out the extra week between the conference championships and the Super Bowl.
