I love my idea that would never happen. 18 game schedule with 60 man roster instead of 53, but a non kicker/punter/long snapper can only play 16 games. Think how much fun that would be.

After thinking on it, it would be kinda cool if they develop permanent cross-conference “rivalries” to play every year similar to the permanent division rivalries in the SEC. And given that the NFL season is several games longer and interconference matchups don’t have many postseason implications, I think it would be much easier to support.

Just off the top of my head, the Giants and Jets should have a “battle of New York” each year. The Raiders and Niners don’t make as much sense now, but that would’ve been another good one pre-Raiders move. The Steelers and Cowboys are still a classic matchup that most folks would tune into.

And for the lesser knowns, I wouldn’t mind seeing the Titans take on the Falcons or Panthers each year, just to build up a regional rivalry.

There’s a lot of things they can do with a 17-game format. I’ve also heard mentions of having every team play a London game and having that extra “neutral” site game cancel out the odd number of home/away.

Not bad idea, but the Steelers/Eagles would be a better Rivalry game for the fans

That would actually be a really cool idea. Bonus for the NY and LA teams, they don't have to go anywhere that week.

Pat/Seahawks at least I guess have a very minor Super Bowl rivalry.

Not that it matters with the Pittman/wentz number issue. But from what I read
Pittman has only worn 11 for one year, he never worn that number in high school or college while Wentz has always worn 11 his whole career.

Jmo, but the young guy should let the
older one have the number. Hope it
doesn't cause a big rift.
