    Preseason.....

    I have been hearing lots of talk about shortening the preseason to 3 games instead of having 4. Whats everyones opinion on this? And what should they do with that extra week?

    I tend to like the idea of having just 3 preseason games and adding an extra week to the regular season, but with that extra week should they have everyone play 1 more game? Or maybe give everyone one more bye week?

    If I had to choose I think I would pick an extra bye week. That way players that are injured have one more week to get healthy, and gives all the players another week during the season to let there bodies recover.

    So whats your thoughts? For or against this action?

    Yah that sounds like a good idea.. I would want to put in an extra bye week... Get the players rested and ready to go for week 1!

    I'm fine with four games or 3 games. It wouldn't really matter to me. If they cut it to 3 games I think that training camp should just start a week later than what it does.

    It does seem like a good idea, but I would vote for another bye week during the week. I think it has got to suck to be the team that has a bye week enter into the equation at like week 2.

    I thought the preseason used to be 5 games, so they decided to cut it to 4 games to shorten it a week and try and prevent unnecessary injuries. I could be wrong though...

    Next year, for the first time ever, I think I'll skip the preseason 'action' altogether.. now it's to the point where I cannot sit through one long enough without getting bored. It could easily cure me of insomnia. I understand it still has to exist since you got players striving for a roster spot. But I can wait until the actual season kicks off to appease my craving for football.
