Two-minute drill with Ryan Nece

If you were NFL commissioner for a day, what would you do?
The first thing you would have to look at as a commissioner is where can you improve? That's one of the things you've got to constantly work on.
Where do you start?
If I'm the commissioner, the first thing I'd look at is how to continue to grow the fan base so that every fan has an opportunity to go to the game.
Recently, it was announced that the average ticket price for a game is just over $68.
Switching up, if you could be someone else for a day, who would you be?
I think I would want to see what's it like to be Billy Graham. That would be pretty hip.
Would it be on a day when he's preaching before a huge crowd?
On a day when he is doing it? Oh, yeah. That would be amazing.

"This 1-0 is different from last year's 1-0 in that these Falcons are built to last. This 1-0 is different in that last season's seemingly epic victory came in the dome against a Philadelphia team that was - even though we didn't know it at the time - primed to implode.
"This 1-0 wasn't the function of a frothing Monday night home crowd and a team amped to the ozone. This 1-0 came on the road and was a cold-blooded demonstration of power and precision.
"It's easy to imagine this team replicating that clinical effort in November and in January. This is the NFL, where emotion fades but talent endures.
"And that's the chief difference between last year's 1-0 and this one."
Mark Bradley, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"The Falcons are better against the run than a year ago, when they were just north of comatose and Carnell Williams ran for 266 yards and two touchdowns in two games.
"The Bucs' only other option is quarterback Chris Simms, whose totals against Baltimore included three interceptions, two sacks and zero scoring drives. Also, his father disowned him.
