So here's the deal with today's chat

We are blowing it out, folks. We are hosting a seven-hour NFL kickoff chat from 10 a.m. ET to 5 p.m. ET on SportsNation. All day, you can click these little blue letters right here and check in with various ESPN.com NFL writers to ask your questions on the eve of the regular-season opener.

What does this mean for our regular Tuesday chat? Not much. I have the noon-1 p.m. ET block, which coincides with my regular Tuesday chat slot. So just like you usually do, little blue letters between noon and 1 p.m. ET and you can ask me whatever you want. Only difference is, if you show up early you'll find Ashley Fox chatting and if you stay late you'll chat with Pat Yasinskas. I can recommend them both, and Paul Kuharsky should be an entertaining sparkplug leadoff hitter at 10 a.m. too.

Here's the whole schedule for the day (all times ET). I hope you enjoy it:

10 a.m.: Paul Kuharsky, AFC South blogger

10:30 a.m.: Jamison Hensley, AFC North blogger

11 a.m.: Adam Schefter, NFL Insider

11:30 a.m.: Ashley Fox, NFL columnist
