NFL Network studio types discuss game, while it's on!
Normally I would have had no interest - other than fantasy-football related - in Thursday's Bengals-Steelers tilt on the NFL Network, which is not available at WatchDog headquarters.
But I knew it was supposed to snow, and everyone loves snow games, so I checked in via NFL.com. Sure enough, it was scenic stuff.
It also was interesting to observe the unusual service offered on the site to fans who can't get the game on TV.
The network periodically checks in on live action, but the rest of the time sticks with guys in the studio - including analysts Jamie Dukes and Rod Woodson - talking about the game as it is going on on their monitors.
Check it out next Thursday if you need to get away from food and family. It's better than nothing, I suppose, but really weird.
