So, the football gods are trying to add two regular season games to the schedule, to replace two preseason games. Anyone who holds season tickets likes this idea, since we pay for those preseason games and no one goes to them.
But when should the games be added? I don't think they should be played in August, as they are now - too f'n hot. Why not add them on at the end of the season so that football season extends until the end of February? I mean, February is a pretty dead month for sports anyway. The hockey and basketball playoffs have not started, and March madness in the NCAA does not start until a month later. I have always said that February belongs to women, as I have no real sport to watch. Now, it can belong to the guys again (except that ONE day).
In addition to adding the games at the end of the regular season (and thus having some awesome cold games in January), the NFL should consider adding an additional off week (please don't call it a bye - a bye is earned). This would make an 18 game schedule be played over 20 weeks, and REALLY get us to the last Sunday in February. Think of the possibilities: we could have Wednesday night football, if two teams come off a bye! Do I dare say Tuesday? Then there is Friday, Saturday, and Sunday! (All this to happen in January, AFTER college football is over).
Yes, I am advocating for football every day of the week. Obviously, each team cannot play every day, but using the off weeks properly can really make football an every day sport.
Well, a guy can dream, anyway.
