Why not a minor League?

If I had a wish, I would probably choose (after all of the usual stuff like world peace, disease cures,etc..) that the 32 NFL teams start their own legitimate farm teams. We'd have the Chicago Bear Cubs, the Miami Fins, the San Diego Bolts, the Dallas Pokes, etc. This league would run after the NFL ended, giving us competitive pro football all year round! The franchises would own their farm teams, utilizing the same venues, the same offensive and defensive philosophies, and even the same fan-bases but with second tier coaching staffs and players. Their drafts could even be combined, adding additional rounds. This would not only give the nation more games; it would also give many players an opportunity to prove themselves worthy of the "next step." And it would give us an extra 16 weeks of competitive footbalI!  think alot of people are put off by the other major sports because of the amount of games they have. Teams can literally take several games "off" and still make the playoffs. But with the NFL's farm teams, they, too, would have 17 weeks and then the playoffs. With the NFL's popularity arguably at an all-time high, I believe people would attend the games and/or pay for a Sunday Ticket-like package (if somewhat cheaper than the NFL) to watch these games. I just think its time for the NFL to finally put the death nail in the heart of the competition and give the nation what it wants: year-round competitive football!
