NFC South programming notes

By Pat Yasinskas

We’re counting down toward the start of the regular season and we’re going to have a lot of things coming up in the next week or so.

Let’s run through some programming notes.

The preseason wraps up this week with the Buccaneers playing Wednesday night and the Panthers, Saints and Falcons each playing Thursday night. I’ll provide quick observations soon after the Tampa Bay game ends Wednesday night. On Thursday, I’ll have a division-wide observations post soon after the games wrap up.

Also on Thursday we’ll unveil or league-wide season previews and I’ll have overviews of all four NFC South teams. I’ll also have predictions on how the division is going to sort out.

Friday also will be a big day. We’re on schedule for our weekly NFC South chat Friday at 1 p.m. ET. We’ll have analysis on each team soon after rosters are cut down to 53 players and, depending on when teams announce the moves, that likely will come in the late afternoon or evening.

I don’t want to get too far into next week, but word out of Bristol is there will be a mega chat, involving the division bloggers and some others, early next week. Details are still being finalized. I’ll get you the schedule as soon as I get it.
