    17 games is really stupid for many reasons, but only one team getting a bye is worth adding an extra playoff team. Only the best team in each conference should get a bye week. No more than 7 playoff teams in each conference though, otherwise you will regularly see teams with losing records making the playoffs.

    I can’t see the players signing off on this. I wouldn’t. Unless you’re gonna pay everyone extra for the 17th game

    Jets and Giants still won't make the playoffs. I like the idea of fewer preseason games but that'll give them a reason to charge more for tickets.
    Most players will wind up getting a raise out of it so if the NFLPA is a democracy they'd vote yes. But it's not and they'll vote no.

    The players' share is going to go up. The owners have seemingly already agreed to that as well as increasing the amount of roster spots.

    If the players don't agree it's because of their anger towards Goodell and for them getting trampled last CBA negotiation. Even though it's a pretty decent deal for them. That's how the world works today- reactionary and angry.

    I heard a former player on the Radio this morning indicate the players SHOULD agree to it and he prefaced it with 'I know I'm gonna heat for this but'. It's like offering a view not agreed to by the echo chamber majority is offensive nowadays, it's really sad. There's 'Wrong' and then there's 'My Opinion'.

    Pretty good game for the Guardians yesterday, better in the first half though. Luis Perez (3rd string QB) is the best Guardians QB so far.

    How do these OT’s compare to past top OT picks? Because I really want oline but Simmons looks rediculous.

    Joe Douglas hinted that he's going WR, saying this team "needs explosive playmakers". With Robbie probably leaving via FA, giving Darnold a WR core of Crowder + a bunch of scrubs is almost as bad as giving him a terrible OL. I think the move is to use the high pick(s) on WRs and then fill in the OL via Free agency and later picks. I don't have concrete numbers to support this but i feel like high drafted OL who seem like "can't miss" studs seem to bust more often than elite WR talents.

    Would some team (not the Giants) be kind enough to sign Leonard Williams?

    There’s a ton of available OL in free agency. They need to add 2-3 of them at minimum and go after a stud WR in the first round.

    Did anybody watch this week's "Curb Your Enthusiasm"? Jets fans might appreciate it.

    Jets should take a tackle with their first pick and a receiver with their second pick.

    WR class is stacked. There will definitely be a good receiver available at 48. Can’t say the same for tackle.

    Truly depends on what they accomplish in free agency.

    Guardians were GREAT yesterday. Great defense, great running game, QB Luis Perez is improving.

    Total turnaround from two weeks ago.

    Do you guys actually enjoy it? I feel like it's just watching low budget football.

    Edit: And no I don't mean the Jets and Giants.

    The XFL rules are great, especially the kickoffs and the general transparency, and the storylines are there. In Week 2 when the QB said they needed to change the entire offensive gameplan it was embarassing, and the week after was even worse. But in the last two weeks they have started to turn things around. Following this has been awesome.

    The football quality is basically college-level from what I've seen, so it is definitely watchable.

    I came in with an open mind, and have watched a decent amount. But after 4 weeks I gotta say - its bad. The rule ideas are cool but it's generally just bad football.
