But without the annual preseason let down game, how are people supposed to overreact and claim that 0-16 is staring us in the face?

Excellent!  Wouldn't mind if preseason never came back. 

Looks like we're one step closer to getting NFL football this year. NFLPA has been asking for there to be no preseason games this year and the NFL has finally agreed. So one step closer. Link

Especially when the cost is the same as a regular season game

Honestly the owners never wanted preseason games this yr but used it as leverage in negotiations to get something else. Both sides play the game well. Way too much money to be made to not attempt to play.

Both sides don’t play the game well. The NFLPA is one of the weakest unions in sports. You just said it yourself. The owners gave up something they didn’t even want for something in return.

As much as I long for August football with the majority of the games being played by guys that won't make the team come September I wouldn't be sad if preseason never came back. It would be like high school and college football in that regard. They don't get warm up games so why should the NFL get warm up games? Just go into it cold turkey and if you're not ready to play you rightly get exposed.

And for far too long the players have allowed public perception to be that they are the greedy ones and owners are just getting by.

Exactly how do they do that with limited locations and 1500+ players alone. They would have had to have had something set in stone months ago. 

True 1500 is harder than 450 but it’s still early and if they want a season they should at least look into it.Is it feasible I don’t know but it’s the only way to keep the players and staff safe.

They have one month. Theres no way it can happen. The NBA situation is different. They can legit play multiple games at once. The NFL would need at least 6-7 fields minimum in order for it to work or you would have games played throughout the week. The issue with that is the players get no real recovery time between games

Opening day could be delayed if necessary you don’t need 6-7 fields 32 teams d by 2 = 16 teams d by 7 days or even 6 days giving two teams a day off you could pull it off on 3 fields if scheduled correctly. 

You could almost do this at Jerry world if the have multiple practice fields but lodging would be a issue.

I was thinking more in line of all games being played in s single day but I see what you're saying though they would have to stretch between 2-3 days. Most you could knock out in one day is 9 games. With more fields you could knock out every game in one day allowing full recovery for the players.
