What Does Pre-season Schedule Suggest About Regular Season?

The NFL announced their pre-season schedule earlier this week.  The Dallas Cowboys will play four pre-season games.  The takeaway is that the number FOUR.  Considering the pre-season schedule is nothing but conjecture at this point in time, it would seem like an ideal opportunity for the NFL to schedule only two pre-season games.  This leaves the question of whether the NFL will indeed have an 18 game schedule in 2011 wide open.

Certainly this does not dispel the potential for an 18 game season come 2012, but it does raise some interesting questions that there are presently no answers.  The second question is, “If the lockout is overturned in court and the financials of the sport reflect 2010 (no salary cap, 6 years until free agency, etc.), does the NFL have the option to schedule 18 games?”  Without a union, it would seemingly allow the owners more latitude in determining the future of the sport.

So many question, so few answers.  At least Cowboys fans can look forward to watching Tony Romo play in the American Century Celebrity golf challenge on July 12.
