With the 2013 season coming to a close this Sunday, it is never too early to think ahead to next year’s NFL season. With that in mind, why not take a look at a bunch of rules that we feel should be changed or be implemented. For the sake of all of us, we hope Roger Goodell is listening:

SUNDAYS ARE FOR FOOTBALL

Let’s get rid of Thursday night football. Call us traditionalists if you’d like, but over the past couple of years, Cake Boss has been more exciting than the majority of these mid-week games. More often than not, at least one of the two teams was just not ready for these contests with only three days to prepare. As if they weren’t lame enough, the league mandated that every team gets a Thursday game, forcing us to watch such awful matchups like Houston vs. Jacksonville late in the season. Not only that, it really screws up fantasy and office pools as quite often, selections must be made prior to that game. Poolies would much prefer the later deadline.
