What could the NFL do with the off season?

Since this is the first Sunday without any football, and with so much talk of an 18 game regular season... I was thinking about things the NFL could do in the off season.

Sundays are boring now... Sure there's basketball, golf and hockey now but its not the NFL.

Other than extending the season, which I personally think is a bad idea... what else could they do?

How about a minor league season in the spring. Each franchise could have a minor league team of talent that didn't make the NFL and play like an 8 game season with a short playoff.

I would watch that, would you?

minor league football wouldn't survive, imo.

I was just talking about this at work, I would love a minor league team made up of players not on the 53 roster most of the season. This would give lot's of players the opportunity to show off their skill and this will make the league millions...The down side to all of this is watering down the NFL product need to keep the fans excited for next season to begin.

The NFL leaves you wanting more, that is a good thing for their product. It beats burning people out on it.

Yeah, I've wanted a minor league for some time. A place to groom guys. Get them playing time. I'd definitely watch.

There's definitely a burn out factor, which is why the season should be short...

Also to keep talent for the NFL high, once a player has been on an NFL roster for say... More than 8 games or something, they can't play in the minor league.

Basically I just miss football... Give me more.

They use to have that NFL Europe league. Always liked watching Amsterdam. Walter Paytons son was awesome. Think he played for the titans later on and even scored a td.

a league of players that aren't good enough to play in the NFL?

it's called the CFL! not even a fair comparison, but it's a fix and a good enough reason to drink beer with 30 or 40 thousand of your friends!

The "new" USFL slated for next year is aiming to fill that minor league role. Unlike the failed UFL, it will play its games in the spring/summer.

I have my doubts it will even get off the ground, though.
