Dear St. Louis Rams:

You haven't shared a regional market with the Raiders and Chargers in over twelve years. Please stop scheduling them nearly every preseason. By my count, you've played an AFC East team twice in your twelve pre-seasons as the St. Louis Rams and both of those games were on the road. The Chiefs game should be the only preseason game you "lock-in" every year. Let's see some variety, please!

Very Truly Yours,

Bored in St. Louis

Seconded.

PS

You're in the NFC, not the AFC-start scheduling more games against your conference brethren.

Dear fans of the St. Louis Rams...

We don't want to show anything to our conference opponents. This is why we schedule most preseason and scrimmage games against non-conference opponents.

Thank you for your concern.

Dear Patriots fans, we Rams fans welcome the opportunity to play you...provided the Rams can inflict a 48 hour ESPN Tom Brady slurpfest immediately prior to the game on their linebackers and Brady play behind the 3rd String Line.

Somehow the Eagles swapped Cleveland for Carolina. I'm not sure why they'd play an NFC team, or why they'd switch things up at all when they've had the same basic pre-season schedule for years.

The special also features interviews with New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush and broadcaster Troy Aikman from FOX to gauge their reactions to the schedule.

Reaction? Other than the assignment of prime-time games, what could there possibly be to prompt a newsworthy reaction?

"Reggie Bush, what was the first thing that crossed your mind when you learned that Green Bay and Minnesota will be playing each other twice this year?"

"Troy Aikman, any thoughts on your beloved Cowboys having to travel to Giants Stadium for the 32nd year in a row?" For that matter, why even ask Aikman anything about the schedule? What's he going to do other than possibly complain about some of the better NFC games being assigned out to prime-time carriers rather than being carried by his own network?

I like the NFL Network and despise Charter for pulling its plug in St. Louis, but this is a bit much.

The NFL Network is unwatchable now. Watching it is like trying to suck maple syrup through a straw. It's painful and all you get when you succeed is a gooey substance filled with sugar and no nutrition.

When it first aired, it was at least trying to have a bit of an edge, now it just slathers itself in self-love. It's just an informercial now, with smarmy hosts and crayon analysis from ex-players.

The final straw for me was tuning in one night, to watch Rich Eisen and Terrell Davis complimenting each other on each other's ties. It was literally "oh you look marvelous", for about 5 minutes.

I felt I was watching the Sammy Maudlin show, at any moment I expected them to kiss and declare that they were going to have each other's children.

Anyway, its pablum, I've actually deleted the thing off my satellite channel list.

Either way, great reference. Up next, Mel's Rock Pile, followed by Monster Chiller Horror Theatre!!!

It's a good schedule for the Hawks, a week 8 bye, and currently three prime-time games scheduled.

The schedule has no long stretches of road games for the Hawks and doesn't end with a lot of really hard matchups.

Buffalo is HOSTING a Monday Night Football game? Is it the end times?

Doesn't Wilson not want to host games b/c of all the canadian fans and that they may not come if the game is late at night. Also that schedule for the Bills is Brutal. Denver, @ Pittsburgh, and @ New England to start the season. 1-2 if we are lucky.

Didn't they already give you that courtesy in 2001?

What's with the time changes starting in Week 9? The early games move from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Eastern time.

That's the weekend that DST ends, if i remember correctly. That may have something to do with it.
