Goodell and his office blah blah blah blah.

I agree. More does not equal better. I love the NFL and I even like the Thursday night games (if you, the collective you and not anyone in particular, don't have NFL Network by now after what? 5 seasons? that's no one's fault but yours) and even if the crew on the NFL Network sucks, that's not gonna bother me enough to not watch a good football game. But starting in Week 2 is freaking overkill. Let's have 2 games on Thursdays and then people can choose! And wait - why don't we play on Wednesdays, too? Sheesh. :-t

I'm a traditionalist, but I was excited when they first introduced the extra Thursday games. That's progress, IMO and I think they provided added benefit to the viewer. Progress can be good. Otherwise, we'd still be without instant replay, wearing leather helmets, and having guys play on both sides of the ball. Guys would still be playing for the NFL Championship instead of the Super Bowl and there would only be 12 teams. But a more realistic example is the "defenseless receiver" penalty which as a former linebacker I absolutely hate, but if it makes the game safer, than I totally understand.

Progress can also be bad, as in Thursday night games every week, the 3rd Thanksgiving game, and some might say the addition of the CAR Panthers. Others would argue that free agency has been bad for the fans.
