Are NFL plans to shorten preseason schedule to two games good or bad for the LA Rams?

The NFL has just created a glass half-empty or glass half-full paradigm for the LA Rams and the fans supporting the team. If the latest reports are true, the NFL Preseason schedule will be reduced from a four-game schedule to a two-game schedule.  While this report has not yet been confirmed, it is consistent with information shared previously and does fit the parameters of the expected announcement.

Pro Football Talk is the first to report this modification to the preseason schedule:

How will this impact the LA Rams?

Schedule changes

The original preseason schedule for the Rams was as follows:

DATE         Location            Opponent
Aug. 14     Los Angeles       Saints *
Aug. 22     Los Angeles       LA Chargers (away)
Aug. 29     Los Angeles       Den Broncos
Sep. 3        Las Vegas           LV Raiders *

* – denotes games to be removed per NFL schedule revision

Now, if the reports are true, the LA Rams will remain in Los Angeles to face the Chargers on August 22 as the away team, and host the Denver Broncos on August 29. As the NFL season continues to draw nearer, the league and teams are working to resolve remaining questions, create contingency plans, and create mechanisms to troubleshoot and resolve unexpected problems that may develop in the future.

Since this revision has been introduced after the NFL preseason schedule was created, six teams currently have only home games:  Denver Broncos, Green Bay Packers, Indianapolis Colts,  L.A. Chargers,  New England Patriots, and Pittsburgh Steelers.  Conversely, these teams are currently scheduled as two away games: Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars Las Vegas Raiders, New Orleans Saints, NY Giants, and Philadelphia Eagles. Subsequent reports are now confirming the action, with the added expectation for teams to have one home game and one away game.
