18 Game NFL Season - I do not think so!

I love football more than anyone, however an 18 game regular season is suicidal for the players. 16 games is more than enough for any team. Below is a list of player injuries this week alone, is any more proof needed that going to 18 games is bad for the League, Players, and Fans!

• Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger lost with a possible concussion.
• Steelers QB Charlie Batch lost for at least a month with a wrist injury.
• Steelers G Chris Kemoeatu lost for two weeks or more with a knee injury.
• Lions QB Matthew Stafford doubtful for Thursday's game with a separated left shoulder.
• Rams QB Marc Bulger lost for three to six weeks with a fractured leg, sore groin and strained hamstring.
• Cards QB Kurt Warner iffy with the effects of a blow to the head.
• Cowboys QB Tony Romo iffy after taking a knee to the back.
• Dolphins NT Jason Ferguson out for the year with a torn quad.
• Packers CB Al Harris out for the year with a knee injury.
• Packers LB Aaron Kampman out for the year with a knee injury.

  1. 18 games is insanity. Really, a 16 game regular season is pushing the envelope when one considers there is a 4 game pre-season, a potential for 4 post-season contests, and an interminable off-season.

    Can you hook me up with a free NFL team jacket?
