Schedule: Prime Time

Postby Mississippi Hog » Thu Apr 18, 2013 4:39 pm

Slow offseason around here, but tonight, the NFL releases the schedule. I should have posted this earlier, but I am curious to know how many games you think/want us to have in Prime Time. Success and excitement around a team seems to generate more of these late games. How many do you think we will get? I am thinking we get at least 6 games in prime time, including one on Thanksgiving. I think ours was easily the most exciting game that day, and I think the league will put it back. Other than that day, I am thinking we get at least 5 more. RG 3 is exciting to watch, and I think, despite our cap issues, we are going to be an EXCITING team this year. Thoughts?

The cap on prime time games today is 5, which does not count the 1 additional possible flex game into primetime.

A team can be scheduled for a maximum of five prime time games, four on Sunday or Monday night and one on Thursday. The overall maximum is six, so a team scheduled for five can have one flexed to Sunday night after Week 10.

All I care about is that the Falcons game is at 1pm on a Sunday.
I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"

Ahh... Did not realize that. Thanks! Must be a fairly new rule, b/c I know I have counted more than that for some teams in the past.
So.... I think we get 6 then, with one being flexed.

Me either until I happened to read it earlier today.

I hope we get 5+1 (and none of them are against the Falcons!!! [-o< )

Because I plan on attending that game, and I'd rather not have to do it on Monday, Sunday or Thursday night and go to work the next morning. Also, if for some reason I can't (I will, but just in case), I'll be guaranteed to watch it at home, so I don't need it to be a primetime.

Well, we got five prime time games, but unfortunately, we will not be playing on Thanksgiving.

I really don't like playing the Egirls opening day!

First time coaches usually get off to a good start because no one has any tape on them. I don't expect them to do well this year, but I do expect them to win more games early than late.

Our bye is week 5. That it's too early! The only advantage to that is If RG3 starts the season on the PuP list then it is one less game he will miss.
