    With the Saints overhauling their defense I think we have a very strong chance this upcoming season.

    From nfl.com:
    Commissioner Roger Goodell hopes to present a proposal to team owners to expand the regular season from 16 games to 17-18.
    He expects to attempt to make his case in May.

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=09000d5d80f717a9&template=without-video-with-comments&confirm=true

    There are several "hurdles" that have to be cleared before any expansion of the regular season games can even be discussed.
    Among them is reaching a new collective bargaining agreement with the player's union.
    But,if all goes well for Goodell,fans may see more regular season games as soon as August 2011.

    I can't install a dish where I live but I work for a D* vendor so I keep up with both carriers. Just this morning the message light on my Comcast box is on and the message is, "Sports Entertainment Customers: in spite of Comcast's efforts, the NFL may terminate Comcast's right to carry the NFL Network, and as a result may be removed on May 1 or after."

    :lol:
