You have a couple of problems running into July- first, you don't get a full summer to rest as a player. Then you have minor details like the draft. Kinda hard to have the playoffs extend beyond the draft.

They've already extended the time frame to accommodate this season. The name of the game is to maximize revenue- I'm sure the 48 game schedule and subsequent dates for playoffs were considered. There are limits to what can be done. Sigh...
