I think they will. 2,000 yards will be easier to attain. So will 5,000 yards with the way the NFL is trending towards passing the football.

It's too bad that the "fans" Goodell is referencing are the ones that really don't know jack **** about football, and are just casual observers.

Why is Goodell such a dumbass. Why.

He's not. Fans that don't know jack **** about football comprise an overwhelming majority of the revenue pool.

I'd like to think that I know more than "jack ****" about football and am much more than a casual observer, and I hate the preseason. Do I think that two extra regular season games are necessary? Not really, but I'm definitely in favor of dropping a preseason game or two. Ideally, I'd like to see 16 regular season games and two or three preseason games but I'd take 18 regular season games over four or five preseason games easily.

I'm with you on that.

Which means some portion of the miniscule percentage of fans who do, in fact, know more than jack **** about football don't give a rat's ass about preseason. Thus making the pool of people Goodell is referencing even larger.

Preseason isn't about the fans. It's about talent evaluation.

And enough players get injured in the preseason as it is, never mind if it was two extra weeks of real football. It's going to get to the point where every team is starting their second unit come playoffs because no one is left.

Rushing records will stay similar per year, because you don't want to give your running back too many more carries per year than what they are getting, or they will fall apart even fast. Passing and receiving records per year are done. Probably career ones will start taking a hit in 6-7 years.

I hate the move to 18. Because 5-6 years from now if Goodell is still here, I wouldn't be surprised to see him push for 20. And casual fans would eat it up. Ugh.

Anything that leads to more football is a good thing in my books. I would kill for a chance to play an NFL snap and get injured so I really don't buy there will be more injuries as a good argument but thats just me. I also really don't give a **** about records.

I don't mind the pre-season that much. It's cool to see players that you wouldn't normally see on sundays. But I do understand why casual fans don't like it.
