Watching the NFL is NOT lazy

I've been trying to think up a way to correlate the start of the NFL or college football season with the business / technology / marketing world. I would take this idea and develop a clever story with pictures that will certainly entertain anyone stopping by my blog.

OR . . .

I can let the ideas themselves be the topic.

Let's go!

• There should be a programmers draft where companies get to bid on technology experts as the graduate from college   

Watching football is NOT being lazy (try to explain the difference to a 7 year old . . . I did!)

• The expectations you have for your team before the season rarely equal the results at the end of the season

• Your franchise may be riding on the back of a star player (I'm not saying that this is a good idea, but it is true) I'm also not mentioning any names

• If you have the right skill sets and are healthy, your team (company) can go a long way

• There will be surprises throughout the season

• Players will shine in areas that you may not have predicted

There are probably many more . . . right?
