Off-season ideas you would like the NFL to entertain. Mine would be an 18 week schedule in place of two extra playoff teams. I'm not advocating an extra game for each team and not an extra bye week per say but rather the Thursday night game participants wouldn't play on the Sunday before or after that game. It would make those games better to watch vs teams coming in on short rest and eliminate that short rest as a potential reason for increased injuries. This would give the NFL 18 weeks of ad dollars vs 17.
