Not bad, not bad.

That Monday night Bengals -vs- Ravens game is gonna be SWEEEEEEEET! In Cincy, winner gets to set the tone early in the AFCN.

(Sucks we have to share it with the Cardinals -vs- 49ers)

bearsfan_51 03-26-2007 03:28 PM

Bears @ Chargers is going to be sick.

liquidswords 03-26-2007 03:29 PM

Colts vs. Saints ... should be a goodie.

Agreed.... I mean I like it cause I'll get to see Vernon Davis, but how do those 2 teams get the opening MNF game? What about Dallas, or Seattle, or San Diego a team that earned that MNF game by winning last year.

Looking forward to seeing the Colts getting beaten at home ;)

GB12 03-26-2007 03:46 PM

I hate it when the Packers have to play on Thanksgiving.

Indeed, sir. Indeeeeeed.

Colts/Saints should be a shootout. I'm predicting 60+ points scored between the two teams.

Ooooooooooo, my defensive scheme against yours....fight to the death!!!

GiantRutgersFan 03-26-2007 04:49 PM

I like it, like it a lot. except MNF is showing some garbage. Bungles/Ravens was a terrible prime time game last season. and Cards/49ers? what the hell?

The Chargers vs. the unstoppable Juggernaut that is Rex Grossman. Please.

They can be had deep with their blitz heavy nature, and Grossman can throw a good deepball....who knows. Plus Norv Turner is their HC.

So, its not out of this world to see them lose.

Number 10 03-26-2007 05:00 PM

Ugh they give us that now. So far away.....

MasterShake 03-26-2007 05:05 PM

49ers and Cards are both up and coming teams....it should be a fun game to watch.


Bears @ Chargers will be a runaway destruction with Rex Grossman looking like a bigger fool than he already does.

The Chargers could win that game even without a coaching staff.

Philliez01 03-26-2007 05:08 PM

I am starting to get worried about the Saints game already, worrying about the run-defense and all against the likes of Deuce and Reggie.

Should be a great game.

Week 1, Thursday Night: Saints at Colts (NBC)
Excellent. I think calling the Saints the best offense in football last year was ignorant, to put it bluntly, when it was the Colts by a substantial margin. Now the Saints will get a good, long look for themselves up close. By the way, Reggie Bush, feel free to fumble the ball again after Marlin Jackson hits you.

Week 1, Sunday: Bears at Chargers (FOX)
Excellent game, although imo the Super Bowl losing team should host the first SNF game of the year. They deserve that stage to raise up the Conference Champions banner and play in front of the nation. San Diego should thank the schedule-makers that they didn't have to go to Soldier Field in late November/December.

Week 1, Sunday Night: Giants at Cowboys (NBC)
More Tony Romo, and Tiki Barber will be all over this game thanks to being part of NBC. (Cringe.) At least the game will be fantastic, although I already miss Tuna.

Week 1, Monday Night: Ravens at Bengals
Week 1, Monday Night: Cardinals at 49ers

Always in favor of watching division games on primetime. Hopefully the San Francisco 49ers offense aka Frank Gore and 10 Other Guys can live up to the primetime billing.

Thanksgiving, Packers at Lions (FOX)
As if one NFC North team that's not named the Chicago Bears wasn't enough, we get two. Jackpot.

Thanksgiving, Jets at Cowboys (CBS)
I'd hate to see what kind of games the Cowboys could get if they actually won a playoff game in the last decade or so and were, you know, relevant. Kidding aside, Denver @ Dallas 2 or 3 years ago was a fun game, so hopefully this will be too. Tuna Bowl?

Thanksgiving, Colts at Falcons (NFL Network)
I'm surprised the Colts got a nod on NFL Network, but it means they play on Thanksgiving so it's aces. Although they have to travel to Atlanta, but whatever. The Falcons actually play well on primetime, so this should be interesting. Nothing like eating some turkey and watching Michael Sick vs. Peyton Manning.

ny10804 03-26-2007 05:14 PM

Nice to know I'll be celebrating a Green Bay Packer win as I chow down on some Turducken.

Geo 03-26-2007 05:17 PM

Ballsy, considering Old Man Favre is playing in a dome. That's a 50-50 proposition right there.

AdrianWilson12 03-26-2007 05:33 PM

Glad the Cardinals get a monday night game, although there's no guarentee it will be on TV here.

I reckon each team should get 1 monday night game a season. 17 weeks and 32 teams means it's possible.

DI 03-26-2007 05:43 PM

Dinner table won't be too nice if Brady Quinn ends up in Detroit. Brother in Law AJ Hawk plays on the other side. That would be interesting

Saints:
391.5 Yards of Offense Per Game (1st in NFL)
25.8 Points Per Game (4th in NFL)
281.4 Passing Yards Per Game (1st)
110.1 Rushing Yards Per Game (tied for 18th)

Colts:
379.4 Yards of Offense Per Game (3rd in NFL)
26.7 Points Per Game (tied for 2nd in NFL)
269.3 Passing Yards Per Game (2nd)
110.1 Rushing Yards Per Game (tied for 18th)

Was it really a substantial margin? The numbers don't lie, and they look EXTREMELY close to me...

PACKmanN 03-26-2007 06:11 PM

when is american thanksgiving?

Homicide 03-26-2007 06:22 PM

Opening game is a possible superbowl match-up! What a great way to start the season!
