not surprising that it beat out the Saints-Packers considering that they are both small market teams. i think Giants-Packers would have had no problem shattering ratings considering the Packers' wide fan base across the country. i'd say the Saints brought the ratings down last year.

the cowboys have by far the biggest TV fan base... combine that with the natural rivalry with the giants, and the new york market, and the super bowl celebration, and that everyone watches the first game no matter who's in it... and yea. it's a no brainer.

the NFL is about TV ratings now... this matchup is the biggest potential ratings draw.

New rules: OT will be the same in the regular season as in the playoffs.

Also, all turnovers will be reviewed, the same as scoring plays. No coach's challenge required.

i don't like the turnover challenge rule... so what can they still challenge, just if it's a catch or not? forward progress, which never works?

giving coaches challenges added a human element to instant replay... they're slowly stripping it away

49ers signed Brandon Jacobs. I guess if you can't beat 'em, sign 'em!

Shannon, I take it you liked him?

very love/hate relationship with jacobs...

he tends to take large chunks of the season off... but he did bring it when it mattered most. plus he told rex ryan to "shut the fuck up, fat boy"... so there's that.

Brandon Jacobs has the worst shaped head i've ever seen. him leaving the Giants may help me like them a little more though.

I've traditionally awarded that title to Scott Mitchell.

As a Bills fan, I'm looking forward to the upcoming season. With the additions of Mario Williams and Mark Anderson, we have a bona fide pass rush for the first time since the 90s.
