Dedicated readers might recall my story in Wednesday’s preview section about the absurd overabundance of NFL-related studio programming this season. Naturally, it was out of date before the print edition hit your driveway.

For example, this: NBC Sports Network announced a weekly Xs and Os show premiering Wednesday called “FNIA Coach’s Clicker’’ with Tony Dungy and Rodney Harrison and former Newsday sports part-timer Liam McHugh.

And this: Sports Illustrated revealed a new Web-only show, “Pro Football Now,’’ that will premiere an episode every Thursday and features former Giants receiver Amani Toomer.

Coming in 2014: Major networks and Web sites will coordinate to provide a separate NFL studio show tailored to the interests of every man, woman and child in America.
