Default NFL finally got something right

Used to be there was 10-14 days of pain between PS and the start of the season.

This year there is only 5.

Congrats for the NFL finally getting this right. Most teams don't play their starters much if at all in the last PS game so there isn't a need for a break after the PS ends.

Can't believe football season is here so quickly.

So we wait 9 days until the Bronco's play, but since the NFL is starting on a Wednesday night of all nights we only have to wait 5 more days until the start of the football season.

Used to be seasons where after PS was over there would be 10 days to 2 weeks of no new info as teams and players rested until the season started and it was so boring as no new info was out and we had nothing to get all up in arms about or storm the Bastiel(sp?) with.

Maybe I confused some KFC lurkers?

I hate the Cowpies because they suck.

(if the Cheffies were ever considered to be "America's team", it would be depressing...42 years is a LONG time to go without a championship.... and 19 years is a long time to go without a playoff win.)

I was hoping someone made Cee-Lo actually listen to the Ramones, so that he could pronounce his new "fanthem" in a manner that doesn't make me cringe.

I don't see the value in having the final preseason game a few days before the opener. It means all the starters will be rested and people who paid $100 or more are watching third stringers.
