I think Duke just moves primarily into the slot. We're so weak at WR.

Yeah I thought about this too... my assumption is they make a move or two tho, including WR. Really excited/curious to see what they do with the DT options.

Would it really be feasible to put a team overseas? They make it sound like five hrs isn't that big of a deal b/t London and EST, but it would be for the team in London who is traveling eight times overseas. Not to mention the eight hour difference for west coast teams and London.

Plus, what would you do with the Super Bowl? You're going to take one of the biggest American "holidays" of the year and move it out of the country in Europe? Or would you just never give those franchises a chance to host the game? Neither scenario seems fair to the fans or the potential overseas teams. Just one man's opinion.

I think St. Louis is too good of a fan base to not have a team, I hope an NFL franchise gets back there.

Birmingham and Omaha are also intriguing to me; two states that are football mad but don't have a hometown team.

Listed El Paso... nice... just from my limited time visiting, and now very limited time living here it does strike me as odd that they only have the AAA baseball team... USL team coming soon though.

Most of these cities listed in the U.S. don't have big enough populations to support a team. Birmingham has about 200K, Omaha about 400K. San Antonio would be able to support a team with its population. I wouldn't be surprised if San Antonio never got a franchise while Jerry Jones still owns the Cowboys. He still has a hard on for Houston getting a team.

The NFL tried the NFL Europe thing a while back and it failed. The logistics alone would be a nightmare. You'd have to have multiple teams based in Europe so teams going to Europe could fly over and play 2 or three games before coming back. Then they'd need a bye to reaccumulate once they returned.

Population of Green Bay, WI is only 105k, and they sell out a 81.5k capacity stadium every game. They are a different breed of fan, sure, I've witnessed it myself, and a lot of those seats to Lambeau are sold on third market to tourists/visitors; not sure how many people are venturing to Omaha or Birmingham, whereas Lambeau is more historically prominent for football fans.

But I think Omaha and Birmingham might be mad enough about football to make it possible.

But I do agree with your point overall that there might be more viable options here, such as STL or another city in TX. San Antonio would be cool.
