The NFL releases its 2010-11 schedule and moves its draft into prime time

This week, not a football was snapped nor a quarterback sacked, yet the NFL still takes center stage.  To the jubilation of those who can’t wait for NFL betting to roll around, the league released its 2010-11 schedule Tuesday.  Sports betting services have already begun crunching their numbers to set accurate lines for Week 1.

In addition to the release of next season’s schedule (listed below), Thursday marks opening night of the NFL Draft.  For the first time in history, the league decided to go prime time with its draft coverage.  The entire first round will be aired Thursday evening, as opposed to the traditional Saturday noon start.  The second and third rounds will be held on Friday and rounds 4-7 will take place on Saturday morning.  Last year’s draft drew a record 39 million viewers.   There’s no reason to think they won’t exceed those numbers this year by moving to Thursday night.

The St Louis Rams have the first pick of Thursday’s draft as a result of having last year’s worst regular season record.  It’s been rumored that they are seriously looking at Oklahoma’s Sam Bradford although only their war room knows for sure.  Either way, come Thursday evening, the league is about to welcome a lot more multi-millionaires.  Other big names that will find new homes include Ndamukong Suh, Gerald McCoy, Eric Berry, Dez Bryant, Jimmy Clausen and of course, TimTebow.

30 thoughts on “The NFL releases its 2010-11 schedule and moves its draft into prime time

  1. Chris

    So you’re telling me the NFL can’t afford to play another regular season game in London ? What a bunch of cheap bast_rds ! LOL,LOL, LOL !!! I guess with them wanting to play a game in Reyjkavik but because of the ash from the volcano might still be lingering . Then all bets were off then ? LOL ,LOL,LOL !!!

    So when the Bucs are on the clock for their first round pick. What am I suppose to do ?

    1) Open up a can of beer and pray

    2) Pleasure myself in the hope that I’ll elicit more excitement than I can derive from their first overall pick.

    3) Walk Buster my dog around the yard for the fifteen minutes that it’ll take them to come to a decision

    4) Pray that if they do trade down they actually know what the hell they’re doing

    5) We find out that the Bucs are now going to trade Michael Clayton and a bag of Fruit Loops to the Rams for
    Stephen Jackson. The guy that Gruden overlooked to take Cadillac. More like a Hyundai to my mind ! Caddy can barely run , much less catch a ball and run downhill !

    6) Because no one within the Bucs’ organization is bright enough or can either spell or pronounce Ndmaokung Suh’s name they simply won’t draft him . LOL,LOL,LOL !!!

    7) All of the above ?

    Alan Parkins

  2. Al… I’m not so sure the fans, players and owners are all on the same page with regards to the London thing. I don’t think it’s gone over as well as they would have liked. So it doesn’t surprise me there’s still only one game there.

    Besides, you live here now. What’s the big deal? he he

    I agree with you on the Bucs, man. It looks like they’re gonna end up with either McCoy or Suh, probably McCoy.

    Here’s hoping he’s all they need him to be.

  3. I hope the Lion’s win on Thanksgiving, but man that’s a horrible match up.
    How do you think the Bucs are going to do this year?

  4. Well, Aer… as difficult as it is to conceive, it’s probably only a matter of time before the Lions are at least somewhat decent again.

    Hey, at least two of those three Thanksgiving Day games are nice. That Bengals-Jets late game should be a doozy. Hopefully, I’ll have woken up from my turkey buzz by then.

    Re: the Bucs, I think we’re in for another rebuilding year. We’re gonna probably start a number of players we land in this draft, plus I haven’t seen a whole bunch of weapons added on the offense.

    We’ll know early on how much time Josh Freeman has spent watching game film in the off-season. He’ll be the key to our growth.

  5. Chris

    I expect Rah & Mark to do the prudent thing and take the best player available. but then again who knows ? Is there a 2010 version of Ryan Leaf, Maurice Clarett or Lawrence Phillips for that matter ? Or they could actually take Dez Bryant and pair him with Michael Clayton ? Oh the drama of it all !

    We Brits we love the NFL game. After all we did give you The Beatles ! So we’re now looking for something equitable in return ! And no the Bush family, nor do Sarah Palin or Rush Limbaugh count ! So you can have ’em back please !

    Dropped this on D Wade after last night’s mauling at the hands of the Celtics.

    Dwyane Wade Has Been Left Out On An Island Where’s His Man Friday ?

    Alan Parkins

  6. C’mon now

    The Pats have to play the Lions on Thanksgiving ? What did we do to deserve that ? Look for God’s sake haven’t we been punished enough for “Spygate ” as it is ? My god the NFL really holds a grudge against Belichick ! LOL,LOL,LOL !!!

    Alan Parkins

  7. Chris

    The Spurs are now back in this series against the Mavs. So now there’s a whole new game to begin with to be played.

    A number of people were under the impression that the Mavs would ride rough-shod all over the Spurs ? I think yourself included ?

    Alan Parkins

  8. Al… I think there’s potential busts in any draft. It’s just up to the lucky team that finds him. Hopefully it won’t be the Bucs this year.

    Sure, Al, you gave us the Beatles but you also gave us Oasis, so let’s just call it even.

  9. Actually, Al, the NFL gave us 2 1/2 good games on Thanksgiving Day.

    And I never suggested that the Mavs would handle the Spurs easily. I do think the Mavs will still win the series but all along, I thought it would take them seven games.

  10. Chris

    After last night’s performance by the Mavs are you still sure of that ?

    It’s not as if Dirk had a good game at all. All the Spurs really need to do is to stifle his game offensively and the rest takes care of itself. Because neither Terry or Marion or Butler can solely beat the Mavs on their own. They’re simply not good enough and you know it .

    Do you think Wade is being hung out to dry by the rest of Heat teammates ?

    Alan Parkins

  11. Chris

    Oasis ? C’mon now what stuff would you call of theirs decent to begin with ?

    LOL,LOL,LOL !!!! We also gave you Posh Spice and the rest of the Spice Girls . But I don’t hear you complainin’ ? LOL, LOL,LOL !!!

    Alan Parkins

  12. Why would you say that about Wade, Al? I just don’t think his teammmates are all that good.

    And I don’t know what to say about Dirk’s performance. He was awful last night, clanking nearly every shot he took. 9 of 24 is not getting it done.

    Meanwhile, it was NICE to see the return of Tim Duncan. Last night reminded me why he’s one of my favorite players of all time.

  13. Chris

    ’bout the only thing that D Wade had good going for him was that he’d been knockin’ boots with the actress Gabrielle Union. Mind you if that comes up in his divorce proceedings then he’s screwed ! You know it’s true that Riles surrounded him with a bunch of crap ! Beasley isn’t fit to lace up much less put on protective cup for his genitals . And Q Rich is simply stealing money from the Heat @ $9.5 million a year. Never mind the fact Jermaine O’Neal is being paid in excess of $21 million for this year alone. Call me cynical but I think that’s absolute bull_hit and Riles is to blame for the mess ! He can’t spot “talent” much less spell the word if you spotted him the letters T L E & T !

    Things We Can Agree On …….

    Alan Parkins

  14. The Heat are going to have to do something, Al.

    I’m disappointed in how Jermaine O’Neal’s career has turned out. I know a lot of it is due to injury but I really felt he had the potential to play with some of the best centers in the league.

    All this leads me to believe D Wade re-signing in Miami is not a sure thing.

  15. Chris

    Jermaine O’Neal to my mind has been an utter bust in the NBA ! He’s failed to live up the hype that surrounded him. Granted he suffered several injuries but at the end of the day ….. you either put up or simply shut up ! O’Neal’s case he’s been able to do neither. He’s simply bitched and moaned constantly. And it has been the same case with Quentin Richardson also. What the hell does Riley see in these players ?

    At least the Bucs came up smelling of roses instead of poo-poo !

    Were you drinking because you misread the score between the Pirates and Brewers ? Were you under the impression it was a misprint ? And am I wrong but shouldn’t the “mercy rule” have come into play ? LOL,LOL,LOL !!!

    20-0 what a shellacking ! Ouch !

    Alan Parkins

  16. I agree with you on J. O’Neal. I honestly felt playing with Wade in Miami would give him a chance to regenerate his career. Hasn’t happened.

    Yeah, Al. Bucs got their guy in McCoy. I think he’ll be a good fit, on and off the field.

    And my buddy is a Pirates fan. I texted him the other day to tell him Nice Pirates Score. I never heard back.

  17. Chris

    The guy (J O’Neal) is being $21 million this year . And that money is guaranteed no matter what. It’s not as if Riles sought to buy out his contract . So they’ll eat it along with his demeanor.

    I think I p__ed off some Raider Nation fans because I suggested their CB Nnamdi Asomugha is overrated ! The guy’s stats are nowhere to be seen in the top 10 of the defensive category for his position. But yet because he gets rave reviews from a couple of NFL coaches . They think it counts for something and the fact he’s a Pro Bowler. Last I looked the Pro Bowl wasn’t even a competitive game. In essence it’s a damn busman’s holiday . Just an excuse to laze away the time at the NFL’s expense.

    I mean when the hell was the last time the Raiders showed a modicum of consistency over the course of an NFL season ?

    Alan Parkins

  18. Al… I’m not sure whether Miami fans are more pissed off tonight about how much they’re paying O’Neal or why they didn’t foul with one to give only to watch the Truth drain the game-winning, and likely series-ending, jumper as time expired.

    By the way, O’Neal was 1 for 7 tonight tallying two points. Not so sure that’s the return on their investment they’re looking for.

  19. Chris

    I know ! Concerning the Raiders. The only thing their fans are now use to is taking it on the chin . Raiders’ fans still think their team and the city is of relevance to the NFL. Much as in the same way Richard Simmons remains relevant in the world of fitness and disco ?

    So you were saying that the Spurs’d be in for a torrid time against the Mavs ? Which team to you looks as if it ought to be in a home for the aged ?

    If the Bus can’t get off the ground this season then I can’t see them at all doing it over the next two to three years at best. When Gruden was in charge he’d hardly nurtured or groomed anyone worth a damn. Freeman may well have an upside but his learning curve is a vast one and I don’t know that the fans will have that sort of time or patience. Ask aero and see what he thinks about the matter ?

    I’m taking in an MMA fight tonight as it’s going to be one hell of a brawl.

    Alan Parkins

  20. Al… Al Davis has become a caricature of himself but at least their fans can still paint their faces and look insane. Rooting for that team has probably driven them to it. Heck, that’s just one step away from wearing a bag over their head. I wouldn’t want to be recognized as a Raider fan either.

  21. Spurs look good, Al. I’m glad we didn’t place a wager.

    You still have two wins to go though.

    You’re right about Gruden. Funny you should mention it. I’m putting up a Chumpservations about him later today.

  22. Chap… I’m not sure what the NFL has in store with that Toronto game. I wasn’t aware that there were owners interested in expanding the game into Canada.

    At least they’re showing more interest than those who live in Los Angeles.

  23. Chris,

    Hmmm, I’m still curious on what the interest level is up there. Maybe Ricky Williams made the CFL a little more popular and spawned a few extra fans!?! Probably not, or they would’ve put Miami in that game… Interesting move to say the least…

  24. Well, Chap, I’d say they could have Detroit play a game up there but being so close, they’ve already been exposed to that ‘brand’ of NFL. After all, what self-loving football fan would willingly expose themselves to that punishment?

    Oh wait…. I’m a Bucs fan.
