Our esteemed co-writer Marima says no, but apparently Roger Goodell doesn't know her like I do - he's still moving forward with it. On the "yes, let's do it" side, you have fans tired of paying regular season prices for a pre-season game. Understandable given the roster you're seeing looks NOTHING like what will ultimately end up on the field. On the "it's long enough" side, will it really take 17 or 18 games to decide a champion? And what about the wear and tear on the players? I can't even imagine what it'll do to them. The Super Bowl will go into mid to late February if not March and then OTA's will start. Congrats on playing in the Super Bowl; you might get a weekend off before starting training for the next season.
