I won't give a shite about the season being over if we win on Sunday week and I'll probably never want to see the NFL again if we lose.

I quite liked Neil this season. Thought he was even a bit funny once or twice.

Reinebold is the man IMO. That ex-Bear loses me as often as he loses his own train of thought and Dara is just a blank space, not even that great as eye candy.

The only thing I've really missed is staring at Brian Baldingers fingers.

I know it's only a 21 week season or whatever, but it's pretty bloody intense from Sept - Feb, throw in a fantasy team or two, pick ems and survivors and it becomes a full time job. So when the season ends you've the likes of Free Agency and the Draft to kinda wean yourself off it slowly, leaving you with maybe May, June and July with no football at all until preseason kicks off. So the way I see it is you've a coming down period between the Super bowl and the Draft, and an actual off season of only 3 months.

Or at least that's what I keep telling myself...

We have other major sports: baseball, basketball, hockey. You'll just have to get into those. They're pretty cool once you get used to them.

I find the weekend between Championship weekend and the Superbowl hard as I don't watch the Probowl or anything like that. Granted it's not a football free weekend as I keep up on the media and stuff for the upcoming finale but I find it's the first weekend I get withdrawl!
Never know what to do with myself!

Too busy to have withdrawal symptoms, what with the college basketball and the Euroleague, the rugby (both codes) and the cricket (KFC bucket on standby), slagging off BT Sport and pretty much every other TV broadcaster in the UK for not showing so much as a sliver of proper hockey (the kind that's played on ice), and going to comic cons and Lego conventions...

Somehow I managed to get into baseball too, and now my only "downtime" is a brief stretch from early February to March. The overlap between NFL and MLB can be a pain across September/October, though.

The worst thing for me is how, when we finally see some football again in August (or September, if you can't view pre-season as real football), the Super Bowl in early February seems an age ago...

Somehow (and for 30 years) I've always found it bizarre that it's normal for top players to go up to eight months without a competitive game.
