    Schefter is one of the people who mentioned such a timetable actually. Another person was on NFL Network.
    I also edited in another thing to my previous post just as you were posting yours, so you can check that out as well. :P

    I must have missed Schefter saying that then.

    I'm not a huge fan of the NFL Network guys though.

    Maybe, but I still can't buy into that fully. A home game against your archnemesis is always more important.

    Yes another was John Clayton I think. I don't care for many on NFL Network as well. I find the reporting to be sort of biased for obvious reasons.

    Re: The NFL Thread

    Perhaps I just missed all of this speculation about the regular refs needing time to get ready, because I had never heard of it. These days, I've only been watching ESPN in the early morning and later at night, so if it was something during the day at some point, that may be why I missed it.

    Replacement Refs happened.

    It was so good to watch a football game that was actually in control. All that talk of the real refs being bad when they come back was apparently just nonsense because they were in perfect form. I bet they will get an even warmer reception at the next Packer home game.

    I liked Jason La Canfora, but he left for CBS. I also like Rich Eisen. Somebody needs to steal Mike Maycock, best color man in football. Otherwise not an NFL Network fan either.

    Rich Eisen is too smug for my tastes...but he's the least of the problem. Marshall Faulk is okay, but Mariucci is unwatchable for me. Irvin is a jackass and Deion is Prime...so a clown. None of them are worse than Warren Sapp though....jesus christ

    I think Mayock is better in his role during the draft. He's not bad as a color analyst for games, but not among my favorites.

    Re: The NFL Thread

    Forum players and coaches usually annoy me, irregardless of what station they are on. Eric Mangini is one of the few I actually find illuminating. After watching him I actually feel like I learned something. Gruden is also good, of course, but in a very different role. He, Maycock, and Daryl Johnston are the three color analysts I really like. Collinsworth is decent, but nothing special.

    Re: The NFL Thread

    Gruden is alright, but he usually has nothing negative to say. But he's entertaining to listen to. I find it interesting that Jaworski is no longer a part of the Monday Night Football crew. I like his enthusiasm and he usually says the right thing, but sometimes his way of speaking just grates my nerves.

    Mayock is good, Darryl Johnston is indeed good. Collinsworth is good...I also like Aikman in that role. There's not many I completely dislike, but Phill Simms annoys the hell out of me and Jim Nantz is just so out of place doing Football play-by-play. Every week I feel like he'd rather be at Augusta doing the Masters.

    I think Al Michaels is still the best play-by-play guy.

    Re: The NFL Thread

    When he dies, Aikman's epitaph will read "That's Right, Joe". Terrible color man, as bland and uninteresting as humanly possible. He doesn't even explain the action that well. Gruden may not be objective about the players, but his commentary is always illuminating. After listening to him I feel as though I know more about football. I feel the same way about Moose Johnston. Janikowski was good, but maybe a little to similar to Gruden. The two of them sharing a booth could get annoying. His NFL Matchup show, with Sal Paolantonio and Merril Hoge, might be the best football show on TV.

    No doubt Al Michaels is still the best play by play man.

    Re: The NFL Thread

    I don't see how you could possibly "know more about football" after listening to Gruden . He's all enthusiasm and not much else. I think he's funny and entertaining, but there isn't much substance there.

    I think you're overly harsh on Aikman, but I don't have to listen to him much so whatever. One who tends to annoy the hell out of me is Dan Dierdorf...man is he awful sometimes.

    I don't tend to listen for people to teach me anything, I know the rules and players of the game well enough. I just don't want to find myself disagreeing or being annoyed with what they're saying more than anything.

    Re: The NFL Thread

    I was more than a little surprised that we came back and won that. After Gostkowski missing FGs and us therefore not even converting off of the Bills turnovers, it was looking bleak, but then the Bills completely dropped the ball and we scored 35 unanswered points.

    Re: The NFL Thread

    I'm glad the patriots won even though they got off to a slow start, but picked it up big time eventually. However, I'm not really impressed with this win because they always beat the bills The Jets lost 34-0 wow I'm speechless I knew they were going to lose but not that badly. Expect a lot of "Tebow mania" throughout the week.

    While that's usually true, the Patriots actually lost to the Bills for the first time in like nine years in last season's game at Buffalo after blowing a 21-0 lead and picking off Fitzpatrick left, right, and center when Brady lost his head and threw four picks, including at least one red zone INT, although I think only one INT was actually his fault.

    Indeed, the more surprising thing was how the Jets couldn't even get on the scoreboard. I know the 49ers have a great defense, but getting shutout? Ouch...I had thought possibly good things were in score for the Jets this season after the 48-17 (I think?) win over the Bills.

    A decent comeback by the Packers, especially in a game I thought that they were going to lose at one point.
