Expanded Regular Season...18 Games?

Has anyone else heard this talk of expanding the regular season to 17 or possibly 18 games?

I just read it in an article at USAtoday.com:

http://www.usatoday.com/sports/football/nfl/2009-03-26-schedule-possibilities_N.htm

 

Let me be the first to say I would love an 18 game schedule.  More football = Happy Pennypacker!  The preseason is bitter-sweet to me.  Yeah, we can evaluate a few younger guys, but it's not really that fun to watch, plus you have to hear the (insert local team here if you don't live in Dallas) fans talk about how they went 4 - 0 in the preseason this year so they can't wait for the real season to start so they can kick some butt.

 

Anyway, who's in favor?

(In case you didn't actually read the article, 17 games would mean 3 preseason games, 18 obviously means 2 preseason games.)
