It will be interesting too see how many prime time games for the Steelers and Vikings. I am hoping for (16) 1pm Sunday afternoon games for Minnesota , which won't happen. Whats the talk about a 17 or 18 game schedule? If they go with with 17,the odd numbered game will be a neutral site game. I say get rid of the bye week and go with 18 games.

I assume you're joking - they are not going to a 17/18 game schedule this season.

The only wrinkle I've heard is that NBC might get an extra game on top of what they've had in the past - possibly going up against World Series G2, which would be fine by me.

I'm talking about future NFL schedules. There would be alot less tie-breaker situations with a 17 game schedule. I think most of their tie-breaker rules are beyond stupid. Strength of schedule should have no bearing on tie-breaker. I would like too see point differential play more of a part in breaking ties.

Has it ever come down to strength of victory, or strength of schedule?

Tie-breakers(two-way) should be:
a.) head to head
b.) head to head point differential
c.)division record
d.)division point differential
d.)conference record
e.)conference point differential

Why would he be joking? It's a legitimate issue.

They aren't going to a 18 game schedule this season but it could happen down the road depending on what happens with the CBA. He was on Dan Patrick's show and said this:
Goodell still wants to add two regular-season games. "We're thinking of flipping two preseason games and making them regular-season games," Goodell said. "It's in response to our fans and better for the game. We would still be staying within our 20 games."

I don't like adding two more regular season games. Just cut the preseason to 2-3 games and leave the regular season alone at 16 games.

I remember back in the late 60s,early 70s,teams would play 7 pre-season games. Back then,they were a big thing because of the merger. Now the fans have seen the light-they are meaningless games and they are paying full price for them.

Goodell said that all week 17 games will be divisional matchups.

Rumor is that Cowboys at Redskins will be the primary 4:15 FOX game Week 1. That would be a refreshing change - seems like the Skins have always hosted the Boyz late in the season the last decade.

I disagree, and am thankful that the NFL does not do it this way.

IMO, encouraging teams to run-up the score NCAA-style will only result in more injuries and more problems as teams like MIN CHI and GB all try to see who can pummel DET the worst. (Or CIN PIT BAL vs CLE for that matter). I appreciate what you're trying to do, though. I just think that putting primary emphasis on WHETHER you've won (as the current tiebreakers do) instead of HOW you've won (as you propose) is the right way to go.

Goodell said that all week 17 games will be divisional matchups.Yup, and being the NFL-is-anti-Bengal conspiracy theorist that I am, here's what I expect our schedule to look like:

1 at Jets - Seems pre-ordained that we'll be opening here on SNF/MNF.
2 Dolphins - NFL would want the 'Fish to play here as early as possible. Denies us a cold-weather advantage against a hot-weather team and makes us play in weather they're accustomed to
3 at Panthers - Our only warm-weather non-dome road game - of course it will be during the hottest part of the season
4 Buccaneers - See week 2
5 Chargers - See week 2 and the start of the pre-Steelers gauntlet.
6 at Colts - Gauntlet game 2
7 Saints - Gauntlet game 3, and gets the darling Saints out of here before the weather turns cold
8 at Steelers - Bruised, we will take on Pittsburgh in their place, probably after their bye
9 at Browns - The only way we play at a disadvantage in Cleveland is on the tail end of consecutive road games after taking a beating. The NFL will do their best to make this happen.
10 Ravens - At this point, only Baltimore, Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Buffalo are left on our home schedule. Last 2 games were PIT-CLE, and Buffalo is "reserved" (see below) to Baltimore has to go here.
11 at Falcons - As above, only three road games are left. At NE and at BAL are "reserved" (see below) so Atlanta has to go here
12 Browns - Cleveland and Pittsburgh are both next, these two games could flip-flop, but I see the league "milking" the CIN-PIT rematch by moving it one week later
13 Steelers - See week 12
14 at Patriots - For our final road trip (excluding week 16) we go to Boston.
15 Bills - As in weeks 2-5, the NFL denies us a cold-weather advantage by having us play host to the Bills after Christmas.
16 at Ravens - Of course we close on the road. PIT will get CLE (at home), so we go to Baltimore

I do not know when our bye would come. Probably after the 9th game just to give the Brownies a slightly better edge. I would not be surprised if all of the teams we play from weeks 5-10 would be coming off their own bye.

And I reiterate my prediction regarding the Steeler's schedule:

1 - The "Roethlisberger" effect will see them play AT MOST one 2009 playoff team during their first 5 games. (I used to say 4, but if Roethlisberger gets a month off the league will want him to have a creampuff in the 5th week to get up-to-speed against.)
2 - Continuing the above line of thinking, they will play AT LEAST three of the following teams in their first 4 games: Oakland, Carolina, Tampa, Miami, Cleveland, Buffalo. Throw in Tennessee and it's 4-of-5.
3 - They will close at home against Cleveland
4 - They will NOT play a late-season road game at Buffalo. On the contrary, I expect the at Bills game to be either in the first 4 OR will be game 5 if Roethlisberger sits out 4.
5 - They will get their bye immediately before they play Cincinnati.

A sample schedule, assuming a 4-game suspension, might look like this:

1 Raiders
2 at Titans
3 at Browns
4 Panthers
5 at Bills
6 Falcons
7 at Saints
bye
8 Bengals
9 at Ravens
10 Patriots
11 at Buccaneers
12 Ravens
13 at Bengals
14 Jets
15 at Dolphins
16 Browns

Vikings better have their backup QB ready to go the whole season, the Saints (cheating) almost killed Favre last time they played.

Pretty much a no-brainer. The Saints home schedule only has 2 marquee opponents on it and with all the Steelers issues, you know Goodell wouldn't want them in the national tv season opener.

A Steelers station had a Steelers schedule up, but now it's down, leading me to believe that it was accurate.

No signs of a kenbuzz conspiracy (they had the Falcons and Ravens in the first 4 weeks), although all their primetime games were backloaded (all late Oct and beyond). The bye preceded a Browns game.

They do have the Browns Week 17, but on the road, but that's not a surprise, since we already know you will play a division opp in Week 17.

Hoping the Panthers get a home game sometime over the Christmas/New Year period since my brother will be visiting from England and we're both eager to get to our first NFL game. Hoping ether the Falcons or Bucs since there are a few fans of each team at work so we should be able to get a group together to tailgate

If the Steeler's schedule leak was true, here's a summary of their first 5 games:
1 - Atlanta
2 - at Tennessee
3 - at Tampa Bay
4 - Baltimore
5 - Cleveland

I predicted no more than 1 of their first 4-5 games against a 2009 playoff team. That's exactly what happened. And I predicted they would close out against Cleveland, which I kinda got right (right opponent, wrong stadium). And I went 3-of-5 in the "opening creampuff" prediction (TEN TB CLE were hits, no sign of OAK CAR BUF or MIA) rather than the 4-of-5 I guessed. I missed the rest. :shrug:

And I'm happy I did. :banana:

The Skins had 3 primetime games last year, too. What's the average each team gets? Either way, I just hope the Thanksgiving day-games aren't the usual bore...

EDIT: just saw above post about Thanksgiving games. NO-DAL should be decent. They gotta bump detroit off until they win the division or something. I imagine the nfl network will ensure the night game is decent.

Vikings better have their backup QB ready to go the whole season, the Saints (cheating) almost killed Favre last time they played.

I have a feeling Jared Allen and Ray Edwards might be dropping some late hits on Brees after the dirty play of the Saints DL in the NFCC.

i thought they had a deal worked out to where they wouldn't do that?

There was never a deal. The NFL took the night off either out of courtesy and/or fear of weak ratings. There's little to fear about MLB anymore.

Finally the Cowboys have to play a respectable team on Thanksgiving... its been awhile


Also, The Giants have a really tough schedule... could be really bad or just ok... i dont see them winning anything past 11...

Interesting. Who's playing the SNF game? (I don't know when WS game 2 is)

If you're talking October 24, 2010, it will be the Vikings at Packers. Unless the New York Yankees are involved, the Vikings at Packers game will win handily in the ratings, especially if Brett Favre is QB for the Vikings.

The conflict is Oct. 31 (the WS absurdly starts Oct 27) . Pitt/NO is the game.

I got the WS games mixed up too. I forgot they don't start the WS on Saturdays anymore. It's game 4.

Phew - I was worried I'd have to pick between Vikings-Packers and the Twins in the World Series there for a second.

That's why Pitt/NO is a perfect selection. NO doesn't have a baseball team and Pittsburgh pretty much doesn't have one either. Big national fanbase for the Steelers too. Assuming the Cubs futility continues, unless it's the Yanks or Sawx, the football game should out-rate the WS game.

Well because on the previous page almost all of your post consist of Cowboys comments. 'Dallas finally plays a respectable team on Thanksgiving' Like they control who they play on that day. Why so concerned about who the Cowboys play? Strange.

I actually prefer the Cowboys play shitty teams on Thanksgiving. They'll probably beat the shitty teams under normal circumstances at home anyhow, so better for the rest of division that they don't get a strong opponent who has the disadvantage of a road trip on a short week.

Well because thats how i feel... I mean Cowboys played a bunch of shit teams the past couple of years (The Bucs, Jets, Seahawks, and Raiders)...

Sorry that i would like to see a competitive game on thanksgiving instead of feeding a shitty team to Jerry Jones boys..

Plus i only made 2 comments... let it go Jerry.. Let it go

Like I said they can't help that. That is the way the schedule is set up. They play an AFC team every other year because the games rotate between FOX and CBS. CBS shows a AFC road game by rule because of the Cowboys and Lions on Thanksgiving. Being that the Cowboys or any NFC team plays teams from one AFC division a year and only two of those teams they play at home the NFL decided to go with the Raiders last year instead of the Chargers. Don't see what the point is or the big deal you are making about it. I guess playing the Chargers on Thanksgiving instead of any other week makes a difference to you. Heck the Saints might suck this season or Drew Brees might get hurt a week or two before they play the Cowboys. Are you gonna complain about that too if they aren't as good?

You are way too obsessed with the Cowboys dude. You spend more time and energy talking about the Cowboys for a non fan. If Romo is 'still' the quarterback why do you care. I post the Cowboys schedule and you post a picture of Wade Phillips. Then you freak out and whinehttp://www-uxsup.csx.cam.ac.uk/~fanf2/hermes/doc/talks/2004-02-ukuug/crybaby.png over who they have played on Thanksgiving and so on. "They have played so many weak teams on Thanksgiving.'

I don't need to ask anyone, I can definitely see. I am true Dallas Cowboy fan and I don't see any humor in your posts. Posting a picture of Wade Phillips in response to a schedule and crying about Thanksgiving games don't strike up a lot on the laughter meter. I understand humor but that is not humor, that is ... I don't know what it is somebody who takes their hatred of a team to a different unique level. That's what true Cowboy fans call 'Cowboy haters.' I mean what is there to hate about. Romo sucks, Wade is our coach,We just won our first playoff fame in 13 years. Maybe you should go tell those 'jokes' to sdallnct. You and him can yuck it up all you want.

Kolb could do it.I really wanted to play the Eagles early because Kolb will still be a work in progress. Playing the Eagles late like that Kolb will probably be seasoned by then. 3rd year in a row ending the reg.season with the Eagles.
