God fucking dammit.

When did these meatheaded animals decide that they suddenly have brains and free will? They need to remember that they're puppets, filthy rich puppets, and they need to get out on the gridiron and dance for America's entertainment.

looks like rational minds will prevail.

Was there ever really a doubt?

Glad it's about to officially be over, but, honestly, not for one second did I think a regular season snap would be missed. I'm sure most of you felt the same way.

The NBA, however, I could see missing some games.....not that I'd care all that much.

I will be very curious to see if the NFL now quickly makes a deal for Thursday night games to be televised from week 2 - the week before Thanksgiving.

Why would they do this? I hadn't heard that this idea was being bandied about (not that I've been paying particularly close attention).

Because it will fetch them several hundred million dollars per year.

Thursday night games already air on their own network once Thanksgiving rolls around, so, they're likely to attempt to make it a year-round thing. They'll have 2 major suitors.

Duh. For some reason I thought you meant that they were going to move the Thursday games from after Thanksgiving to before.

Nothing to see here, move along.

I'd be really surprised. Andy Reid hates adding people older than 30 and hates distractions (part of why this might be the last year you see DeSean in an Eagles uniform).

Actually, I can see how you thought that based on my wording....

in all honesty though, it wouldn't be the worst move the Eagles could make. although i'm a big Vick fan (yes, i hate dogs too), i'm not sold on him staying healthy all year. having someone like Favre to come in and and close a game for you could prove to be helpful.

assuming Kolb is gone, who is their other QB? are the Eagles pretty confident in him?

Mike Kafka, of Northwestern fame. There is not a soul in the world who is confident in him.

This picture just doesn't have the same effect:

hmmm....then i really wouldn't blame Philly for picking up a veteran. if it's Favre, they should prepare for the baggage (mostly on the media's end), but it could end up being a wise move. i'm all for it!
