    It will be interesting to see if we get any "prime time" games.

    I think we will. Although I think Denver will get more than us because of Manning.

    I just hope we open at home again.

    We'll probably get a Monday night game against Denver, Sunday against Saints and Thursday against Oakland

    Also, aren't there going to be more Thursday games this year? I could have sworn I read somewhere that they're starting earlier in the season

    The last few years the NFL has gone out of their way to schedule the away games I am interested in at the worst possible times. I am looking at Tampa, so that one will be on Thanksgiving or Christmas weekend.

    Yep. Starting week two this season, there will be Thursday night games.

    And the Thanksgiving night game is moving from NFL Network to NBC.

    I thought the schedule leak was unconfirmed rumors? Or are some of those dates legit?

    I predict the Jets and Broncos will have the most prime time games so the networks can better suck off Manning and Tebow.

    There was a fake schedule leaked about 2 weeks ago. Hope you're not going off of that.

    That date was confirmed for me thru a friend of my wife who works for the Chargers since a bunch of us are planning on going to NO for the game/vacation. As to the rest of the leaked schedule being legit or not, who knows? I wasn't even aware there was a schedule leak until I saw it mentioned here ITT.

    edit: the actual game is Sun. Oct. 7 @New Orleans 5:20 p.m. NBC. Someone fed my wife so ****** info (probably based of the fake schedule). I stand corrected.

    We actually got the best a team can get as far as nationally televised games. :tup: Good thing we didn't get a schedule like the Browns...

    I can almost feel for the schedule makers after this. BUT I cant fathom why the F 3 games scheduled within 11 days is ever overlooked or planned? SO still room to disaprove of the finished product due to the fact they ARE idiots.

    Worst we got this year was week 7-8 BUT they make up for it with week 9 giving us 10 days to recharge.

    EDIT: its the 28-01. Does that add up to 4 days or 5 to you?? Sounds like 4 days to me so that is a pain still.

    Chargers' 2012 schedule may be even harder than it appears
    by Dan McLellan, CBSSports.com
    The Chargers' 2012 opponents had a collective winning percentage of .520 in 2011. This gives San Diego the sixth most difficult schedule next season, but it may even be more difficult than it looks. The Broncos (8-8) should be improved with QB Peyton Manning, and the Chiefs (7-9) should improve with the return of several players who were injured last season. The Chargers will also face former teammates who will have something to prove in WR Vincent Jackson (Buccaneers, 4-12) and RB Mike Tolbert (Panthers, 6-10).

    Oyea we got my Bucs this year and we get Cam and Tolbert. This year is BIG games most every game.

    I'll be at the home game against the Broncos October 15th. Anyone in SD care to give me a couch/bed for 2-3 nights around that time? :D
