Saw this comment by former Packers exec and current writer for the National Football Post, Andrew Brandt: “Continuing power of NFL: it is “news” that schedule — with opponents already known — will be announced next Tuesday.”
So true. The NFL let everyone know today the 2010 schedule will come out next week (at 4 p.m. Arizona time) and it was, indeed, news. And it will be big news again Tuesday when the actual schedule is released (and again, we already know what opponents every team has; the schedule release is about what dates those games will be played).
It underscores that, again, there never is a true downtime for the NFL anymore. Fans are ravenous for any football news. But mostly, it shows the power of the shield.
