NFL Cuts Preseason in Half

Recommended Posts

https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/07/01/nfl-cuts-2020-preseason-in-half/

 

It’s been rumored and expected. It’s now official: The 2020 preseason will be trimmed from four games to two.

Specifically, Week One and Week Four have been scrapped. The league is expected to announce the move on Thursday.

The move was driven by two primary factors. First, teams who will be playing preseason games on the road won’t want to move that many people. Second, given that no teams had on-field practice sessions in the offseason, coaches would rather have the extra time to work with their teams, and that will happen if they don’t have to worry about two extra preseason games.

Already, the Week Four preseason game is worthless (or, more accurately, less worthless than the other preseason games). So it’s really only the loss of one preseason game. And the first preseason game doesn’t typically involve much work from starters, anyway.

I wonder if this is permanent or just because of the shortened season?

It really hurts the rookies and the free agents brought in..

I thought the NFL was planning on doing this anyway. Wasn’t it next year with the 17 game schedule, or am I wrong?

Advantage to the teams with head coaches and quarterbacks that did not turn over last year.  In the AFC that means:

Jets
Broncos
Steelers
Raiders
Jaguars
Titans
Texans
Ravens
Chiefs

Of the 9, the Jets are ranked 4th.  There are 7 playoff teams.

Unless your head coach is Adam Gase.

Preseason is a gigantic waste of time anyway.  Only real reason it was 4 games is because the owners don’t have to revenue share the ticket and concessions  sales

i can't say i'm unhappy about losing 2 preseason games.  i suppose it impacts many players on the edge because they don't get the same chance to show what they can do.  but they will get two extra weeks of workouts so maybe it's a wash.

I've wanted this for years. 2 fake games is enough. They are only fit for b. s. injuries.
