I don't like the 18 game proposal. Season is already long enough plus the toll on players is already severe.

I wouldn't mind seeing a 14 game season again maybe with another round of play offs.

i hate the idea that the season could go to 18 games... The NFL doesnt care about the sprt anymore... All they give a damn about is money and their "money making all-star" players... Tom Brady, and tons that i cant think of at the moment. But Tom brady is a perfext example

18 games seems reasonable provided that you shorten the preseason to only two games.

Expanding the season would force teams and coaches to actually use players that ride the bench the entire season in order to relieve some of their starters for a couple of games. Depth charts would become much more important that way. Seriously, how often do we get a chance to see 2nd and 3rd string athletes get a chance to actually earn a check? So what if the 'golden boy' or Peyton can't go a few extra rounds. Let's see what these teams are really made of when their 3rd string QBs have to step in once in a while to keep the boat afloat.

I'm saying no, I like it how it is now, it kind of leaves you wanting more once the playoffs finish.

Personally I prefer they leave it alone. That said, if the NFL wants to go 18 games they better be prepared to hand out a substantial pay raise to the players, otherwise the union will tell them to get bent.
