dibs on all of Faith's shoes
dibs on faith :ihih:
Thanksgiving Day battle vs. the Cowboys or Detroit would be awesome...
We'll get one this year. Flexed, so long as we win enough to be in the race.
IMHO these are the only 2 weeks they would Flex out -
Week 12 Sunday, November 27 8:20 p.m. Pittsburgh Steelers Kansas City Chiefs Arrowhead Stadium
Week 13 Sunday, December 4 8:20 p.m. Indianapolis Colts New England Patriots Gillette Stadium
That being based on the Chiefs and Colts - if they don't get it together.
But during Week 12 - we play the Colts, so that ain't happening (again based on today.) So Week 13 is our chance IMHO - Panthers @ Bucs, if we are both in the mix for the division, I could see this one happening, they could tout the clash of the 2 newest QB's of the NFC South.
I see many Sunday and Monday nights in our future.
Or Week 17, we play the Saints - that is if the game meant something.
As for a flex game this year. The flex weeks are week 11-17. I was looking @ the sched and I only see 1 week where they would make a change and put us on. That is IF we are in the playoff hunt.
Looking @ it week by week:
Week 11: Phi @ Giants... no way they pull this game with the following these 2 teams have plus they are in large markets. Also it's a rivalry game.
Week 12: Pitt @ KC This is a possiblility as KC is garbage but we play the Manningless Colts and they may be worse than KC.
Week 13: Ind @ NE This might be our best chance. This game should be a blowout. NBC might look to put our game with the Bucs @ TB on if both teams are in the hunt for the NFCS title.
Week 14: Giants @ Cowboys No way NBC will move this game as it would piss off Jerry and you don't want to piss off Jerry. Although this would be a good game for us against Atl @ BOA
Week 15: Balt @ SD both teams look to be strong and this might be a preview of the AFC championship game.
Week 16: Chi @ GB another rivalry game against 2 popular teams. Also rivalry game that will draw well. Scheduling might be a problem because this game in on Christmas day and all the others are going to be played on Christmas eve. Don't see them moving this one.
Week 17: No Sunday night game as they all play @ either 1 PM or 4PM
So as I see it the best chance would be Week 13. But you never know what the network boys are thinking.
Beating down the Cowboys while consuming mass quantities would be awesome.
I think we get at least one game on Monday night next year. If teams continues to improve and Cam looks good: perhaps two games next year. Doubt we see a Sunday night game till we prove we are a contender
Should get one Monday Night football, maybe a sunday nighter as well
We've been on Thursdays on NFL Network as well.
we'll have a couple games flexed this year, imo.
going forward we could probably count on more than a couple prime time games.
the hype newton is getting will assure that. if we can be competitive and win, we should easily see a couple MNF a year as well as the occasional sunday night games.
