    2019 Random NFL Stuff Thread...



    Make this happen, NFL.

    And you'd have to stagger the players you sit so that your whole starting roster isn't sitting at the same time. So pretty much every game would probably be missing a couple starters. Just a dumb idea.

    No kidding. Could you imagine if you bought tickets before the season and planned a big family vacation to watch the game. And you get there and the Cowboys make Zeke a healthy scratch. It would just be stupid. Luckily it will never pass.

    Plus they would have to expand roster sizes to accommodate all the players sitting out of games. In the end you make your product worse but you've got more of the product to sell essentially. It's like calling 2 preseason games regular season games and charging fans for them.

    I'm sure you'd see some of both. Some teams would would throw away 2 games with all backups while others would try to spread out their losses over the course of the season. Either way you're basically diminishing the talent on the field for the sake of getting 2 extra games. It's stupid and would just create an additional annoying novelty.

    Probably, but would you really do that with your QB? And if you bench a player for 2 games midseason and they get hurt and miss 2 games you just fucked yourself.

    While I hate this idea, I doubt anybody would save the end of the season before they started playing their reserves. I'm pretty sure they'd play them throughout the season when supposed easier games showed up on the schedule.

    Yeah no thanks. Could you imagine having to use your backup QB for two games at the end of the season. Laughable.
