One Idea For An 18-Game Season

New, comments

I came across an interesting Associated Press story with an interview of New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's agent, Don Yee. He's talking about the 18-game season and things that the league can do to make this idea actually work.

His idea includes adding five players to the active roster -- 58 instead of 53 -- and allowing all of them to dress on game day. Currently, only 45 of the 53 can dress on game day. 

He also proposes players playing in a maximum of 16 games, which means your starters would have to sit for two games.

"This compromise will create even more interest from fans," Yee said in an e-mail to The Associated Press. "What two games will the head coach sit the starting QB? That's a discussion that will set sports talk radio airwaves afire."

Wow. Now that's an idea.

I can't say that I agree with it but he's right in that it would be great for sports talk radio. 

So which two games from 2010 would the Chiefs have sat QB Matt Cassel? Maybe the Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns game?
