    I just realized how far away the NFL season is and it frankly is scary. What will I do with no Pats to watch on sundays? I know we have the draft in a few weeks but that will not hold me over!

    That's why we bought all those NFL Championship and Three games to Glory DVD's and why we recorded every game for the last 4 years! Things to watch in the off season. (Also why we suscribe to NFL Network and why we look at this website 4 or 5 times a day)! :D :D

    This is when you invest your time so you can watch more Pats/football in the fall. Spend as much time with and do as much now with your family now so you can watch more football in the fall. The more time you spend now the greater the return in the fall.

    NFL Network is a godsend. 3G2GI/II/III provide plenty of relief, too. I break it down like this. I still have 3 weeks to get ready for the draft (including Michigan spring game 4/14!), then it's draft time. By the time the Red Wings and Pistons underachieve and get knocked out of the playoffs, I can turn my anger toward minicamp. And I love me some minicamp action. Again, this is where NFL Network comes into play. Then, it's about time to buy a gazillion NCAA and NFL preview magazines, which tide me over until training camp starts. Training camp is awesome, again because of NFLN's coverage. Once preseason games hit the air, we're golden. Then it's college on Saturday, Pats on Sunday, and a week worth of recaps and previews to read.

    I just got NFL Network. It's awesome. I like the behind the scenes features on the past Super Bowl Champions.

    What do they do during minicamp and training camp?

    During minicamp they cover each team. They also have "Patriots Cam," "Colts Cam," etc. for all teams where the players get on and talk about what's going on, and they do this more frequently during mini camp. During training camp, they'll actually have days where they are live at a team's camp, and air their camp (save for blatant coverage of team drill.) It's nice.

    You're referring to the America's Game series? I think those are probably the best docs on SB champs I've ever seen. I saw that the entire collection is out on DVD, so I will be picking that up first time I see it. The best part is that is stops at SB XL (no Colts!)

    I also hear there's NFLN On Demand? I have DirecTV, so I don't have this, but that sounds pretty cool.

    While NFL network is a must for the long offseason, they do need to do something about the constant repetition of shows. I don't need the same news time and time again.

    The season does seem so far away but one summer hits time goes by a little quicker.

    They've gotten a lot better. I could do without "Football Follies", that show is pretty lame. But the hidden gems of NFL Films is just great. And it's a series, so they are continually adding shows to that.

    NFL Films was such a revolutionary concept, there is so much footage they have that is still unaired. The Sabols are owed a debt of gratitude by the NFL fan.

    I feel bad for anyone missing out on the NHL playoffs. Defenitly the best playoffs of any sport to watch.

    Yup. I thoroughly enjoy the 6-7 games the Wings play every year. Speaking of which, I have my tix for this year's playoffs. Woohoo.

    While NFL Europe on NFL Network won't be as interesting this year with only two punters and a center from the Pats to watch, it's better then baseball.
