    Who would have thought that schedule release would be such a big thing

    Patriots have a tough stretch after their week 9 bye. At Denver, vs Raiders in Mexico City, home against Miami, at Buffalo, at Miami on MNF and then at Pittsburgh on a short week

    I think I heard earlier that the GIANTS play 4 teams coming off thier breaks ....
    That seems like an odd thing to have happen.

    I was beginning to wonder if ANYONE was watching NFL Network or espn for the draft ... for the most part no one has posted about it ... just seemed odd.

    I watched the first few picks, but other than the Bears shaking it up with taking Trubinsky, the draft was/is usually boring to me. The announcers and coverage is loud and repetitive like most espn talk shows. I would add full of commercials too but I think it went commercial free for an hour or so because of one sponsor.

    To his credit, Goodell acknowledged the boos, and encouraged them.....

    I watched more from the NFL Network than espn, but found Both lagging behind the picks to do stories.
    They'd come back and there would be 3 picks already made that had not been covered.

    To me it started to look like the Olympics where you get coverage when they find time, I tend to look in and pay attention when my teams get close.
    I did watch most of the 1st round as you just never knew where my Buckeyes were gonna go. Some went early, some later in the1st ... was only expecting 3 in the1st.

    Looks like the NFL is messing with rules again.

    They are changing the time for a quarter when in OT...
    This is a stupid idea, first a few years back they decided to make it so both teams possesed the ball (unless they score a TD), no longer sudden death.
    then now they decided to shorten the OT quarter from 15 minutes to 10 minutes .... wth
    Do they want TIES ?
    I certainly don't, if it were me I'd go back to playing a real game till the tie is broke, none of this, both teams have to have it, SCORE and lets go party.

    I see Micheal Vick wants to sign with the Falcons and retire a Falcon ....
    Does Atlanta want Vick ?

    A huge PR decision and one fraught with trouble. IMO, they should sign him but I don't see them doing that considering where they stand today as a franchise.
