NFL Network has blocked off two hours tomorrow night to announce the 2013 NFL regular season schedule. That release – and the 5,000 word opus I’d penned as a compliment – have both been delayed to the week of the draft.
The drama surrounding this year’s schedule could very well involve the Bears – among three teams expected to be in the running to host the Ravens on the opening night of the NFL calendar (along with Denver and Pittsburgh). And while I would greatly miss the experience of the first NFL Sunday – my favorite day of the year – I can’t imagine the league NOT wanting to hold their opening night festivities in the great city of Chicago.
For now, the drama waits.
