I would hate the thought of guys (taking games off) load managing because the season is too long.
    I don't think they will kill the Golden goose. What might happen is the healthiest team will have better odds at winning as the season progresses.

    It’s like that now. We just saw Tampa obliterate the Chiefs because the Chiefs
    O-line was decimated by injuries.
    Going forward , even more so.

    At the end of week 18, you may not need to ask who’s the better team in the playoffs but instead who has the most bodies left?
    From the 2010-2020 season, (A 10 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks.

    Dolphin fans in the 90ís who wanted to hold on to Don Shula for what he did in the playoffs in the 70ís...
    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008, with Cowher's players & coaches

    I think there are plenty of QBs that could play a mistake-free half game. With a balanced offense you are talking about him having to throw maybe 15 passes. Things get dicey when you ask a 2nd stringer to throw 30+ good passes a game.

    Thinking on this, it might not be that wrong. If you consider second contracts for RBs are poor value why not run them into the ground and let them sign elsewhere after their rookie deal? The mistake would be running them into the ground and then signing them to a second contract. Like trying to sign Bell.

    Hopefully with a back who Canada has history with and who has a different skillset will bring a few more touches his way, and away from Harris. I get that drafting a RB in the first might be a five year max relationship, but let us do whatever we can to make it to five years.

    I don't disagree about the injury situation in the league. It will probably get worse.

    Even with the banged up Oline Mahomes and the Chiefs didn't make plays that they usually made to make the game more competitive. Mahomes had a history of making plays in less than ideal situations.

    Or not having a 2nd option so Toussaint gets carrots in the playoffs when your main back gets hurt.

    I donít know. Constantly sending teams to Europe ; wanting an international league .. not listening to the players who are telling them the international travel is too much. I donít know. Owners greed seems to know no end.

    every year I hear people like you predicting the demise of the NFL.

    and yet the NFL only becomes more popular, people love their football and always will.

    Were absolutely correct. Miami hasn't won squat ever since Shula left.

    Play em.. you can’t protect a player from injury. It can happen on any play.
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?
