Default The worst thing about NFL is.....

I`m new to the NFL and it`s come as something of a shock to discover just how long the off-season is.....over 8 months.....8 MONTHS!!!!!
What on earth do you guys do to help yourselves through this period?
Me?....i`m going to buy this years NFL Record and Fact Book and try to learn as much about this great game as I can.
I can`t think of any other sport with such a long off-season...8 months!!!!!
What do the players do during this time?

the reason the offseason is so long is cause football is a contact sport. the players need time to rest their bodies and be in top physical condition to start the new season.

during the offseason they take some time to rest and take some time to train their bodies and get even better next year

I personally keep myself busy with the NBA( Knicks all the way! lol). and you can always watch other Pittsburgh teams like the penguins in the NHL, and the Pirates in MLB( when the season begins). and you can always come to this board and have some fun with fellow fans.

good luck dude

the NFL season never really ends....with free agency, the draft, training, preseason, regualr season, and playoffs. I personally love this time of year because I'm a certifiable "draftnik"...and love checking up on college players and trying to figure how who we may take in the April draft.

I will send you a list of good mock draft sites....they will tell you where they are "predicting" players may go...and also usually give pretty good insight into the players themselves .

Another thing to do is trying to keep track of how many bengals get arrested.
