Too many big players have went down in preseason, which could cause their teams a playoff spot. The preseason means nothing so its pointless for players to put their season on the line. What do you think the NFL should do to prevent players, and mostly QBs from going down in the preseason?

Cut it down to two games. Some teams play 5 games, that's ridiculous.

Cutting it down to two games wouldn't do much. I was watching NFL Live the other night, and they listed of several key players (including Vick) that were injured in the SECOND pre season game.


I guess 2 games would be ok, but you still have the younger players that play hard every play to try to make the team and they're going after the players that are secured in their starting spots or whatever. I don't think there's any way to control how much each player gives during pre season....

I don't think they need to cut down on the # of preseason games. What happened this year was a fluke. A 5 game preseason is needed. Why? because some teams need that long to evealuate the talent that they aren't sure about. That's the whole point of the preseason. Obviously there is no way to stop injuries in the preseason, but what they can do is just not play the people they KNOW they will start. I mean what is the point of starting players like Vick or Penington in the preseason? To see if they are still good? I gaurantee that either one of them could have had an off preseason and they would still be the starters this season. Preseason is for the players you aren't sure about, not for the players that you KNOW you're going to start. Keep them out of it and you don't have to worry about season destroying injuries. It's as simple as that.

Good points Wolf, but preseason isn't just for the coaches to evaluate the talent they have. It's also for the players to get into game shape and get used to taking the hits again. It gets them mentally and physically ready for the regular season. I guess they should make it up to each player (that is GOING to be a starter FOR SURE) as to how much he plays. If he only wants to play a quarter in the first pre season game and that's it, then he will be held responsible if he's ready or not.
