We're going to get this started a little early tonight, because, well, as if I need to give you a reason.

Thursdays are great nights for football, so here's a spot in which you can crack that first beverage and drop a comment or two while you're stirring the cheese dip and getting the oven ready for the pizza rolls.

Yes, I'm really hungry right now. And I'm trying to make the final preseason game much more memorable than it probably is, because my motto is "beverages, cheese dip and pizza rolls make a boring night better."

No, I'm not very healthy.

Let's get into some conversation here, though. Who are we watching? What is our general reaction to the new league rules implemented today? Anyone got the other games on? Cleveland and the Bears have a game, the Ravens and St. Louis have a game...some other teams do as well. What's going on in your region?
