I think I know who you mean......livinginthepast?
It`s not a question of being bored,more that it`s frustrating that just as I`m beginning to get a VERY rudimentary understanding of the NFL,it`s going to be all over in about 3 weeks!

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?
Lol - Watch other sports. Hockey, baseball, some NBA... Of course, there is always a soccer league going on somewhere (I?m sure your aware of that)...

The off-season for people who are really into the league and have been watching for a long time is actually very exciting... Free agency periods and the draft are two of my favorite NFL events to be honest.

As far as your question as to what the players do, they go to a warm place like Florida, Arizona or California and work out for the majority of the off-season. Most of them (From what I understand) stay home for about three weeks or a month and do nothing and then just train everyday until camp.
