It’s not football that counts. It’s not even exhibition football involving your Houston Texans (that comes in one week, against the Packers in Green Bay). But tonight’s tilt between the Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons is the first semblance of football with a scoreboard you’ve watched since the Patriots beat the Rams almost six months ago.
That, my friends, means you have made it through the NFL offseason. For the next six months, football will surround you. Bask in it. You’ve earned it.
With that, the floor is open. Chat about the Broncos, Falcons, Texans, and whatever else is on your pigskin-addled mind in the space below as the Hall of Fame Game gets underway.
