Oh, why can't there be more football games?

... in a season?

I mean only 16 games for the NFL? When other sports like baseball, basketball, and hockey have a lot more games.

I think hockey's just as tough as football. [Tim Allen]Argh! Argh![Tim Allen]

Am I the only one who thinks they should add more games? Like two times every week for each team? I want my Wednesday Nite Football!

I know football's punishing, and it takes time to learn plays and recover from a game. I know! Since i played football in high school.

Or the players in the NFL are simply too lazy and dumb to learn new plays and prep for a game faster?

Not sure if this has been asked before, but tried a search and couldn't find it.

I don't think there is anyway in the world you could ask those guys to play 2 times a week. It's just physically impossible over a long season. Sure, everyone would like 25 games a year. But I don't think it's realistic, and the overall quality would surely suffer.

the punishment these guys take is too much for them to play more than one game a week i'd say. i would like to see more games a week but its really to much. add to that the preparation they make for these games. i would agree hockey is tough like football but basketball and baseball are a cakewalk compared to hockey and football.

The team rosters would have to be twice the size because half of the players would be dead by the end of the year.

I'd just like tos ee more nights have games. Why do we need 12 games on Sunday?

Why not 1 on Monday, 8 on Sunday, and the other couple can be spread around the days.

cause managing the amount of days off in between weeks for each team would be a nightmare. if it followed that format you could legitimately have anywhere from a few days to over a week between games. the 1 week standard is good.

At least they can do away with bye weeks and give us 18 games ... no?

Okay, so we agree that it would be too punishing to have two games for each team. But how about a longer season???

I like how they occasionally throw in a Thursday night game. I wish they'd do that more often really.

16 is just right. However, I think they could cram another time-slot into Sunday: noon, 3, 6, and 9 would be perfect.
