Why can't football play a 162 game season, like baseball?

They're tough- and they make good money!

    Cause football isnt baseball. You can play baseball every day, but football you cant. If Football played a 162 game schedule you wouldn't have any players left cause they be so banged up and injured if not DEAD. Just playing once a week for 21 weeks (17 weeks with the bye week and the playoff weeks and the super bowl) is painful enough. Plus 162 games simply isnt feasible.

    Football only played 16 game season schedule while Baseball only played 162 games season.

    Because it is not meant to be played for that many games. Football is a more active game to play verses baseball is a slow paced game.

    why can't baseball play a 16 game season like football? i think i'd be much more likely to watch baseball if every game mattered like it does in football. it would also make starting pitchers much more valuable, they would become like NFL QBs. and it would allow for so much more strategy with a week to prepare for every game.

    The body cannot handle such punishment. It is the same reason they do not play doubleheaders or games that can last 10-12 hours.

    In baseball the pitcher is the only one that needs stamina, and starting pitchers play every 5 games.

    None of the players would survive one season.
