A special day ahead

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- No matter what might happen Saturday in the NFC West, I won't be here to blog about it.

All four franchises could relocate to another country and word might not reach those casting votes in annual Pro Football Hall of Fame balloting.

The process begins at 9 a.m. ET and concludes with announcement of results at 5 p.m. ET.

None of us will know results until the announcement is made. I'll be presenting the case for Cortez Kennedy and will share thoughts after results are known.
