Everybody in college uses 5 or 6 receiver sets and its impossible for defenders to defend considering they have basically been handcuffed in the last 5 or so years. 

 

6 receiver sets? Last I checked 5 receivers on the field at a time was the max.

I don't mind it. It doesn't really change anything. Its relative. A good defense many years ago would only allow 6 points, but today its more like 17. Thats fine to me. You still need a defense to be expected to win, its just not gonna sophisticate people anymore. Same thing with records. Ok the luster of throwing for 400 yards isn't there, but now today its 450 or 500. You just have to adjust to the game. Don't have this absolute, nonchanging way of thinking.

i don't see how anyone (other than maybe wives) can be unhappy with having football on another night. if you don't like to watch it on thursday, then dvr it and watch it at a more "appropriate" point in the week.

 

it's not like it's diluting the product or anything. it's not another game added to the schedule...it's just another night it can be watched, if you want to.

 

as far as the game changing...it's been evolving constantly since it's inception in the late 1800's. each time new rules have come into effect (many for the safety of players, some just to make it more competative, and others just to make it more appealing to a wider audience) there have been complaints from those who think that football from an earlier time than they were in was better. each era thinks that they had it right a few years back, even tho that era was viewed the same way by those from an earlier one.

 

each decade brings about a lot of changes and with it a lot of complaints.

 

the truth is, although the game looks and plays a bit differently than it did a decade or two ago, it looks incredibly different from when it first started. which era is better? it's personal opinion. those who were around when they had leather helmets would likely say that was better. those who didn't wear helmets at all might ridicule any other era for wearing silly hats at all. what matters, tho, is that for all it's changes...it's still football. it still rules.

 

changes will keep coming, but people will still keep playing and watching.

 

it's good that it goes through changes, imo, becaue it keeps it fresh. evolution is a good thing. change is good. not all changes are good, but overall change is good.

 

people will keep on complaining about how different things are getting, but those people are going to be right back either in the stands or at the bar or on their couch watching whenever the game is being played.

I was about to say the same thing. Is the QB throwing it to himself?

I heard Tom Brady can do that.

If I could, I would watch at least some part of every game played that week.

 

So yeah, I'm a long way from being over-saturated.

Brett favre can. His first completion ever was to himself. Google it.

We really should annihilate the Rams, they've looked abysmal offensively. Tavon Austin hasn't figured out how to utilize his skill in this league and the offensive playcalling is retarded.

The Rams' D looked good, but the offense? Wow. What a mess. Austin was a Ginn-like reach, Bradford still sucks, and the OC appears lost with Steven Jackson in the backfield.
