Is This a Copy of the Eagles 2012 Schedule?

Is This a Copy of the Eagles 2012 Schedule?

A website called EaglesStats is claiming to have uncovered the 2012 NFL schedule via the league's website.
The NFL released its preseason slate yesterday, but EaglesStats is claiming the league actually posted its regular season dates and matchups weeks ago and that the whole thing has been sitting on some inactive page on NFL.com that isn't accessible to the public. 
From the explanation of their discovery:

"The original plan was to release the NFL Regular Season Schedule the week before the 2012 NFL Draft (Thursday, April 26th).  However, I found a way to access this early and wanted to give you all a look at what to expect starting Wednesday, September 5th."

Now we're not saying the games, times and dates you see below are legit. What we are saying is that if this guy took the time make up this much detail (he did all 17 weeks for all 32 teams), then he is a sick and depraved human being and deserves recognition for wasting so much of his time on that basis alone.
Then again, no one's that crazy -- right?

The NFL shortened overtime to 10 minutes and people want to make sure Donovan McNabb knows

The NFL shortened overtime to 10 minutes and people want to make sure Donovan McNabb knows

First reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the NFL owners have voted today to shorten overtime from 15 minutes to 10 minutes as a move to reduce playing time to aid in player safety.

People on Twitter wanted to make sure Donovan McNabb knows about the change.


Although nearly nine years have passed since the Eagles and Bengals played to a 13-13 tie, it seems the former Eagles' QB still hasn't lived down the fact that he didn't know that could happen in the NFL.

"I've never been a part of a tie," McNabb said after the game ended. "I never even knew that was in the rule book."

McNabb wasn't alone, as several other of his teammates, including DeSean Jackson and Correll Buckhalter also did not know the game could end in a tie.

Now, more games will likely end in a tie and fans probably won't ever let McNabb forget it.

NFL to allow group celebrations, use of football as prop

NFL to allow group celebrations, use of football as prop

CHICAGO -- The NFL wants to put some flair back into touchdown celebrations, allowing players to use the football as a prop, celebrate as a group and roll around on the ground again if they choose.

In an email from Commissioner Roger Goodell sent to fans in an effort to deliver "a more exciting game experience," the commissioner said the new guidelines came after conversations with more than 80 current and former players.

The league, however, will continue to penalize any celebration deemed offensive, including those that embarrass opponents or mimic the use of weapons.

"Players have told us they want more freedom to be able to express themselves," Goodell wrote.

That freedom had been stripped in many cases, with fans and media criticizing the NFL as being the "No Fun League." A 15-yard penalty often was the price paid for excessiveness.

Goodell's email also mentioned how the league is placing an emphasis on speeding up the pace of games. To go with that, he said the league knows "that you love the spontaneous displays of emotion that come after a spectacular touchdown."
