It's a Friday morning and there's not much in the way to talk about when it comes to Texans news, so we'll continue to work our way through a list of offseason discussion topics. Today's topic--the length of the NFL regular season.

After much heated debate about whether the NFL should extend its regular season from 16 games to 18 games, things have been quiet lately. Advocates of both sides (e.g., here and here) of the debate have valid points, though most are firmly entrenched in their respective camps and seem incapable of being swayed.

I ask you, BRB: Should the NFL add games to its regular season? Or should they stick with the current 16 game slate? Or, as a third option, do you believe the NFL should shorten its regular season? Vote in the poll and explain yourself in the Comments.
