Thursday night football solution

Just have teams play that are coming of the bye week. Make it teams in the same division. This way they are well rested.
I think the solution is extending the season in terms of weeks

But not games played. More rest for the players and more flexibility in scheduling.
Wow what a novel idea

Not only mentioned 200 times on the site, but multiple times in last nights game threads.

Ps if both teams have 10-11 days to prepare then I don't understand why it needs to be a division game

only because it would be easier to schedule the games. Seeing they play each other every year. Not all bye week teams play each other during the year so it makes it hard to schedule a good game.

Get rid of this terrible idea.

I don't know Milton - I am not trying to start an argument but, it seems a bit complicated. The answer must be so simple that a quick implementation would go un-noticed.

The big issue

with players is they don't have time to heal.The issue the owners have is they would lose a lot of money and players salary cap would take a hit. If its team coming off a bye week than there is no issue.
