Didn't know where else to put this and not thread worthy - but it sounds like Vikings will open up against Philly to kick off the NFL season.

Should be a very interesting game to watch.

Thursday night, opening week, pressuring defense. IF the old qb lights up the Eagles I will be shocked.

Go Eagles!!! Not really, but pretty close. For all intensive purposes, Vikings are an NFC East team to me this year. I'll be rooting against them just about every game.

To the point where you'd root for an actual NFCE rival to win? I know where my priorities are, and they don't include rooting for any NFCE rival to win.

That's why I said "not really".

Re: NFL ratings, TV deals, Jersey sales, Rule changes, Expansion, etc

Thank God. looks like we might be going back to the old rules for a completion: ball in hand and two feet down rule. I hope so.

"Slight movement of the ball, it looks like we'll reverse that," he said. "Going to the ground, it looks like that's going to be eliminated. And we'll go back to the old replay standard of reverse the call on the field only when it's indisputable."
Vincent mentioned two infamous non-catches in recent years and said they would be catches under the new rule: "The Dez Bryant play, that'd be a catch. The Jesse James play, that'd be a catch."
Over the past several days, the @NFL Competition Committee has been reviewing the process of a catch. The first two elements are control and two feet down. Additional elements are also under consideration. Here are a few of the plays we are looking at.

Catches will also be debatable, but they do need to move away from the idea that it needs to be perfect

Just so I understand. When he says "Slight movement of the ball, it looks like we'll reverse that", meaning, a slight movement in the ball as long as it's in the receiver's hands will be a catch?

And, "Going to the ground, it looks like that's going to be eliminated." I'm assuming this was the Dez Bryant catch?

I am happy to see that, but they also need to get the officials to have more uniform definitions. Which goes back to having full time officials that are trained in the off-season, and graded out BEFORE the season, as well as during.

Ha! If 2 teams are playing each other that are both from NFC east I'm always pulling for the team playing the Cowboys!

I like the fact that we get to root for Kirk in the opener.
