Sunday Night Flex Schedule


Shroinke

Recommended Posts

Like everyone, I'm SOOOO happy the NFL allowed flexible scheduling this year for NBC's Sunday Night Football. However, while checking the schedule for upcoming games, like I usually do, I noticed something:

The most recently scheduled game, for Week 13, is...

Seattle (6-4) @ Denver (7-3)

Not a bad matchup, until you consider this is the SIXTH time the Broncos will be on primetime!

Week 3: Broncos @ Patriots

Week 5: Ravens @ Broncos

Week 6: Raiders @ Broncos

Week 11: Chargers @ Broncos

Week 12: Broncos @ Chiefs

Does anyone really want to see Jake Plummer lead that boring offense 6 times?!

No! And I am already sick of the Broncos "primetime" monochrome blue. In fact, because of where I live, I buy the Sunday ticket to see the Bucs. To me, that would suck if all their games got moved to national tv anyway and also due to my work schedule, I can't stay up to watch late night games. In all seriousness, to get big games, you could "flex" the same four or five teams every week. It's a great idea...if executed properly.

Why not Niners @Saints instead?

Nah, I would have preferred Texans @ Raiders.

But yeah, although it makes sense for Week 13, compared to other games (close ones DAL@NYG, JAC@MIA, SF@NO) it is getting way too Broncos-heavy. I thought this flex scheduling was to help expose the surprise teams like the Saints and Jets this year.

I also find it funny that McNabb gets injured RIGHT before the Eagles have two primetime games in a row.

Don't forget that the Broncos get a lot of CBS late games, which cover anywhere from 80% to 100% of the country. Lots of people outside of Denver have gotten the entire Denver Broncos season.

Here's the thing - this Sunday is the prime reason that even the Flex Schedule isn't perfect:

They move the Colts/Eagles match-up into prime-time, and all of a sudden, the top game this week looks to be the Bears/Pats match-up, because McNabb tears his ACL, and the Colts aren't undefetated anymore... It just goes to show that no matter what you do, you can't please everyone.

Denver hasn't played six games on NBC. They've played three on NBC and one on ESPN. This thursday's game is on the NFL Network and the week after it's on NBC, so that's four, not six.

In a semi-related topic, it seemed odd how Fox was pimping it's "NFL's designated future Fox Games of the Week" last weekend for the next four weeks, and the Giants are involved in three of the four....

The joke is on Fox: the Giants suck

That's true too. The only games, if I remember correctly, that haven't been CBS' most widely broadcast game (of the games they've played outside of all of these primetime games) have been against the Browns and last week against the Raiders. I dare say even the game against the Raiders was the most widely broadcasted as well.

I think thats the main reason why ive watched so little football this year. I cant frickin stand the Broncos. Id rather watch C SPAN than a Denver game. But God do i love this thanksgiving. The Bucs are on primetime, and the Broncos are only on the NFL Network, which I dont have.

FIRE THEM CANNONS!!!!!!
