NFL to expand regular season? (PIOG)

I was listening to The Fan yesterday (local sports talk radio here) and they were talking about different scenarios IF the NFL decided to (at some point in the future) expand the regular season.

One of the options were to get rid of 1 week of preseason and tack that on to the regular season.

Another option was to add another bye week during the regular season & add 1 more game.

I think there are several different possible scenarios to make it work & I think it would be GREAT if regular season lasted longer! Who knows if this would ever happen but I'm just wondering what your thoughts are on this.

Problem with season lasting longer is you go into mid winter for the Superbowl. I do think the preseason games are risky for injuries as it is,so why not just dump those anyway. Just my opinion.

From what I understand the goal of the NFL is to have 18 weeks of regular season. Which from their end its better because they can make more money. No one really watches preseason so they don't sell out games like they do during regular season. I'm totally for a longer regular season I hope it happens. Next year they are supposed to tack on one week and the year after one more to make it 18 weeks.
