    According to Bill Williamson of ESPN

    The Chargers’ Dec. 23 game at the Jets has been flexed out of the Sunday night time slot. It now starts at 1 p.m. ET. The 49ers-Seahawks game takes its place.

    Kind of a no-brainer from a program director's view - but it doesn't change the fact that yet another west coast team gets screwed into an early start after travelling east - East Coast teams are sure getting the overall advantage on coast-to-coast travel gametimes this year. All part of the design, and $ continues to rule.

    I now wouldn't be surprised if we give out the better game. I can see the seahawks game being a tie with how the 9ers play.

    I wonder if the seats in Jets stadium will be as good as the Murph when it comes to masquerading as people?

    I wouldn't know, I've always been an AFL guy and didn't much care for the other league.

    The way the Steelers and Bengals are limping in, this just might have playoff implications anyway

    Actually, I'm relieved.

    Because for five seconds after first reading
    Chargers lose the Sunday Night Game...
    --given the season we've endured--my thoughts were:

    "Oh Jesus, REALLY Chargers?!? You've already found a way to lose a game that hasn't even started yet?!?
    Norval?? That's it!! Even I can't defend this, brother!! Okay, I'm finally off this freakin' bandwagon!!!"

    After realizing the kickoff was just moved...well...I guess I'm in a bit longer ('til they crush my heart)

    Wow, at first I had a real conflict. I was scheduled to attend a night at the opera on the 23rd and I would have had to miss watching the game. Whew! Crisis averted...
