The NFL and the player's union finally are sitting down and speaking to one another, which is the best news any NFL fan can hear.
This doesn't guarantee there will be labor peace on March 4, but as long as they are talking there is hope the 2011 season won't be shortened or lost.
Whether these talks are productive or not remains to be seen, but all anyone can do is hope for the best.
Dave Duerson also is in the news for a very grim reason. Nothing about this story is very uplifting, but we'll touch on that as well as all the other news and rumors of the day.
Thanks for stopping by as we hit everything with commentary and analysis. It's a Sunday without football so we'll try and keep things light. Hope you enjoy it!
