It is being reported that the NFL will be changing the NFL Season to a 17 game schedule. That means half the teams will play one more game at home than they play on the road, while the other teams play more road games than home games. Some teams will have their season balanced out by international games. Will the Bucs and their fans be on the short end once again by the 17 game schedule?
Think about it. Despite all the afternoon festivities and pregame hype, the game doesn’t start till about 6:30 on the east coast… long after the sun has gone down in January. By the time all the postgame talk and awards have been given out, it’s after 11 pm on the east coast. People are all liquored up and they don’t want to go to work the next day.
The day after the Super Bowl is one of the least productive days of the year in American businesses.
Yeah I am fine with this, I am very surprised that the PA didn’t agree to it with an extra bye week though. Is 2 extra weeks of paying staff and vendors, etc enough of a money dent to make the owners scoff? I understand an extra week of stadium bills can add up real quick but I thought there would be a player concession in there.
Colts will be a tough matchup. I thought I read that they are eliminating a pre season game or 2.
I say great! A 17 game season gives Brady one more game to accumulate more NFL passing records that will never be equaled! Just don let Brady or any starters get injured in a meaningless 17th game! That said, maybe Brady and company can be the first NFL team to go undefeated in a 17 game season. I know I’m reaching, but if the Bucs remain healthy and if you look at their schedule there are only a few games that could prove difficult. Then again…..On Any Given Sunday!
Every time the Bucs played in London it was always a “Home” game that deprived Bucs fans from going to the stadium to watch the game. Playing those “home” games overseas also eliminated the home field advantage. My biggest fear is that whenever the Bucs 17th game is scheduled to be a home game, the game will be played overseas.
