It's never too early to be looking forward to the 2013 NFL season.  It probably is always too early to be looking forward to the 2013 NFL preseason, but alas, the NFL has released the schedule and so I now forward it to you.  At least the NFL and the networks are sparing us the abomination of the fourth week of preseason from national television.  Thank you Jesus.  The games begin in Canton on August 4th with the Hall of Fame Game between the Cowboys and Dolphins.
