It may be only March, and the baseball season hasn’t even started yet, but, just as we almost forgot, the NFL dangled a little carrot over our heads today by announcing the first batch of games for the 2007 season:
Sept. 6 – Thu. – Saints at Colts – NBC – 8:30 p.m. (ET)
Sept. 9 – Sun. – Bears at Chargers – FOX – 4:15 p.m.
Sept. 9 – Sun. – Giants at Cowboys – NBC – 8:15 p.m.
Sept. 10 – Mon. – Ravens at Bengals – ESPN – 7 p.m.
Sept. 10 – Mon. – Cardinals at 49ers – ESPN – 10:15 p.m.
With the announcement of some of these games, I almost wish they were five days away and not five months. Every single one of these games has some level of intrigue to it. It will be interesting to see how the Saints go into this season as a favorite to win the tough NFC South, while the Peyton Manning goes into this season having already won the big one. Ron Rivera gets to face the team that fired him as the top team from each conference during the regular season square off in
But what’s most amazing about this is how year-round football has become in
In some ways, September cannot come soon enough.
