Oh wait, the Colts beat the Bears...that's right. That Hester Kid for the Bears returned the opening Kick Off for a TD, first time that ever happened. I remember that...but I still can't remember one positive memorable play for the losing team of this last Superbowl. I remember Eli Manning made some ridiculous play and some kid on the Giants made the most retarded catch I've ever seen....but the name escapes me of who they beat...

Besides the question of where the 17th game would be played (16 neutral site games?), the balance of the schedule is screwed up. Who would that 17th game be against? Plus there are so many players out with injuries now, why add another game that results in playoffs being decided by who has the least injured team?

The fans would rather see more real games and less pre-season games, but those exhibition games are very profitable for the NFL. Season ticket holders have to buy those tickets, and for other fans it's the only chance to get to see a game for a team that always sells out. Adding another game would result in the player's wanting more money for the extra game.

If they add one more game, choose a neutral site and let teams choose it.

Example: Steelers would play the Eagles at Beaver Stadium. Have both teams get a share of the ticket revenues.

No more games. The more you add the less important they become.

I don't see how one more game is going to be less improtant seems like they would be the same.
