NFL could cut the preseason down to three games

Salary Cap Carryovers have been announced for all 32 teams

Should NFL cut back the preseason to 3 games?

Today an interesting piece was written by ESPN’s Rob Demovsky who covers Green Bay.  In an interview with Mark Murphy the Packers team president, Demovsky asked Murphy about the preseason and the team president who has been a part of the NFL competition committee said there have been long talks regarding the preseason. It sounds like the preseason could be getting cut back to three games soon….

“I think there would be support for three,” Murphy said. “I think Mike’s (idea), that’s what we’ve talked about. Rather than playing that fourth game on a Thursday … don’t play a fourth game and then you’d have an extra week. We’ve looked at different models, but I think that’s the one that makes the most sense.

“You’re giving up some revenue, but it’s one of the worst things we do. The move we made on variable (ticket) pricing helps a little bit in how preseason is viewed, but especially that fourth game is kind of a throwaway.”

I think it is smart, what do you think?
