Here are the POSSIBLE changes the league may have to make to see an upcoming football season. These are "rumored" changes but they all make sense in this world we're living in.
- The NFL could move the Super Bowl in Tampa Bay from Feb. 7 to another Sunday in February. The story said the league wants to keep the Super Bowl in February, meaning Feb. 28 would be possible.
- The NFL could eliminate the bye week between the conference championships and Super Bowl. The Pro Bowl is usually played in that bye week, and if the bye week is eliminated, the Pro Bowl would be, too.
- The season could be delayed until Thursday, Oct. 15.
- The NFL could shift the schedule for two early weeks to the end of the season. A third week would have teams against opponents with the same bye week, so that week could be erased and all regular-season bye weeks would be eliminated.
Just burn your sports calendar and get ready to reprogram it COMPLETELY! Between NHL, NBA & MLB it's going to get crazy confusing.
