Imagine a 16-game week in which the league begins six of its 13 non-prime time games at 1 p.m. ET, three at 2 p.m., and four more at the usual 4 p.m. slot. That staggered start could allow fantasy owners to consume more of the game they love without jeopardizing the on-field product by playing games on Tuesdays or Wednesdays. And, most importantly, it would help us all avoid those pesky early-morning starts. Until then, I'll see you all around the TV at 9:30 am next season. Who's bringing the breakfast nachos?
