    I see that the first week prime time games and the preseason games have been released, when is the NFL going to release the rest of the schedule? I thought I read a few weeks ago that the NFL Network was going to do it on NFL Total Access tomorrow. I checked there now and there is no mention of it.

    It has been pushed back. Happened last year as well.

    The NFL schedule makers have to figure out who they are going to screw and who they are going to help.

    Yeah, I remember that happening last year. It seems to me that it shouldn't be that difficult to do. We are in the age of the computer that should help along with some common sense.

    You are probably right, they have to figure out how they can send us to the east coast back to back or how they can only give us one or two primetime games and make sure that Green Bay, Cowboys, and New England get the rest. What made me laugh about that last year was they gave Green Bay all of those primetime games and they stunk the year before. Knowone had any idea they would do that well. And we have two home primetime games, one being Xmas eve, and we had finished 14-2 the season before. Go figure.

    The schedule makers put up the primetime games they think will draw the largest media market. That is why those teams get the prime time games. SD just doesn't rate as a big media draw. Sucks, but it is reality with the billions in TV rev.

    Once we become San Diangeles, we will get the big market attention.

    Last year's delay was due to protesting by the Broncos, it's likely that someone is protesting again this year.

    I could care less how many MNF games. I don't like ever having to play on a short week.

    I don't think it sucks. I hate when we play those "off-hours" games on Sunday and Monday night.

    Especially now, with all of the focus on Rivers and his mouth, or LT and his "sulking". We get those night-time games, and cameras will be focused on our bench all game, and they're bound to find something that they can run with.

    No thanks.
