Terrible idea. 18 games is a bluff by the owners. They're not offering the players anything and asking them to incur two more games of punishment to their bodies.
Too many people are buying the myth that 18 games is the sticking point. Its not. Here's a good link.

I like the idea of all players on the active roster being eligible to play on game day. I really think that the practice squad limit needs to be increased rather than the active roster limit and they should be eligible to suit up on game day in the event of an emergency (like a short term injury). Ideally each team should have 2 deep on the depth chart plus the kicker and punter. Then at certain positions go three deep like QB, TB, TE, MLB and C. Then have extras at WR, CB, and SAF.

I don't really like the idea of each player only being eligible for playing 16 games. I myself am okay with a 16 game season and 4 preseason games because preseason is where you get a look at rookies and other players that are new to your team and you get an idea of how they play in game situations.

It seems to me that owners are trying to make more money because players are demanding more money. However, I believe that players should actually have to earn their payday like in the real world. Have a base pay and then earn bonuses based on accumulated stats. Base pay factors would include years of service in the league and opportunities to earn bonuses (OL would have the highest base pay). I think the OL would earn bonuses based on how they graded out for the game. Defense would earn them based on tackles, sacks, and INTs accured. Scoring a TD would be the highest paid bonus. In the event of a TD pass, the passer and receiver would each get credit. The bonus scale would pretty much be scored like fantasy football I guess is what I'm getting at.
