Good Morning Giants fans, another Wednesday is upon us, and it's time to take a look at some of the stories making headlines around the NFL:
- The NFL has adopted new safety rules in the hopes of better protecting receivers.
- DirecTv has a new deal with the NFL, and it will include online streaming. Personally, I couldn't see myself screaming at my laptop while watching the Giants, but I guess for those that can't have DirecTv and don't want to go to a bar, this is the best they can do.
- NFL Owners will vote in May on lengthening the season to either 17 or 18 games. As long as it includes subtracting 2 games from the preseason schedule, I am all for it. If teams expect the fans to pay regular season prices for those tickets, then the games should count.
- The Washington Post looks at the pros and cons of a longer season.
- T.O. skipped his first workout with the Bills.
- Browns coach Eric Mangini says the starting QB job will be an open competition.
- The Sporting News says ticket sales are still the key to the NFL's future.
The "Great Moment in Giants Stadium History" is taking the week off. But I do have something special planned for you on Thursday, so make sure you check in.
Don't forget Ranger fans, Blueshirt Banter is up and running if you want to talk Rangers hockey. Thanks to everyone who has stopped in.
