The NFL lockout doesn't necessarily equate to an offseason abyss.
Sure, Eli Manning tossing pigskin with his receivers at Hoboken High School suddenly becomes more interesting, as does every Reggie Bush tweet and mention of Vince Young around the Washington area. The NFL's withholding makes everything that used to be taken for granted that much more desired.
Kevin Kolb, Donovan McNabb and each NFL team that's about to get fined for illegal free-agent and trade contact still give us that good stuff at the bottom of the milkshake.
For those diehards so fed up with the NFL they brag about ignoring it completely (yeah, that'll show 'em!), I'm giving you the straw today. We're far from coming up with air just yet.
