While the 2011-2012 NFL season is still going on, there are already changes for 2012-2013 season.  These changes range from quarterbacks, networks, uniforms to coaches.

There are several quarterbacks that are free agents, as of now.  Since the football season has not ended, the numbers of free quarterbacks could increase.  One quarterback that is a free agent is Donovan McNabb.  McNabb used to play for the Vikings. 

McNabb was sent to the Vikings after playing one season with the Redskins and now the Vikings are waiving him.  The second quarterback is Vince Young from the Eagles.  Young had spent six years withTennesseebefore sighing a one-year deal with the Eagles.  After coming to the Eagles, his performance was awful and will be playing somewhere else in the coming season as a backup.  The third and final quarterback is Matt Flynn from the Green Bay Packers.  Flynn will be playing somewhere else when the new season starts.  He is expected to get a big contract for 2012-2013 season.

            Another change in the NFL for 2012-2013 is the media.  The NFL announced on December 14, 2011 that yearly Thanksgiving games on Thursday will move to NBC.  That will be established in 2012-2013 seasons.  There are other things the media will establish in 2014.  As the media changes, the uniforms are changing.  So far, the only team that is changing uniforms is the Denver Broncos.  The team’s home jersey used to be orange, but it changed to navy blue in 1997.  This change was made by an overwhelming desire of the fans to wear orange at home.

            There are five coaches being fired at this time, since the football season has not ended, and the number of coaches could increase.  The NFL teams have not yet announced the 2012-2013 new coaches.  The coach of the Jaguars, Jack Del Rio, was fired and replace by Mel Tucker to finish the season. Rio’s record at the Jaguars was 69-73 for eight seasons as being head coach.  Romeo Crennel replaced chiefs head coach, Todd Haley, for the rest for the 2011 season.  Haley’s record at the Chiefs was 19-27 for three seasons.  Miami Dolphins’ head coach, Tony Sparano, was let go and replaced by Todd Bowles.  Sparano’s record at the Miami Dolphins was 29-33 for four seasons.

            Many changes are occurring in the NFL from quarterbacks to networks and everything in between.  So, next year your favorite team, player or coach might not be in the same place as you found them this year.
