So Enough About Lofton Let's Talk About April Events For Football


Recommended Posts

So a lot of things have gone on so far within the last few months after the SB some things we liked that our FO did and many we didn't and some that had us scratching our heads like a person with bad dandruff. With April around the corner a lot is going to go down in 2012 a time of the year we missed last year and that is offseason activities so I figured i would lay out a schedule that I recently found on what to in April something that should get us all excited on what to expect within the coming weeks.

Well, the Super Bowl is finished, and while the Bears weren't participating, at least neither were those cheeselovers up north (or those Clint Eastwood-backed, Eminem-loving, car-making up and comers from Detroit). So begins another offseason, full of hope and optimism - especially now that Jerry Angelo has been shown the door. Hit the jump to check out the important NFL dates to mark in your Blackberry (just kidding, unless this is 1999).
