167 seems like an insane number for only 9 teams. It's got to say something but I'm not getting it.

Maybe why the games are played at such a low ebb by the teams with so many changes in offence . I heard the commentator that is just rookies to pro ball not counting rookies who played in the NFL previously .

That's a steep learning curve in one shortened hodge podge season .
