Before I head off to bed, I thought I make a quick post about the schedule prediction. First I think every team will get a national televised game next year, that should be a first with 32 teams. That would be Saturday, Sunday Night, Thursday, and Monday. Next is San Fran will not get a home nationally televised game but will have to travel to get one. I am not sure if you guys remember but they had some power outages at Candlestick last year so I doubt they will get one for this upcoming season. Lastly is what will Detroit get for Nationally Televised games. Well how about Green Bay, Chicago,
San Francisco, Seattle, and possibly Philly. The Turkey game although Indy would be better for the Lions I think the NFL will try to make Detroit work again and have the turkey game losing streak in tact for some more years it seems and have us play Houston as they are the stronger team. Needless to say that would give us 4 maybe 5 National TV games. I would also expect us to have either Green Bay or Chicago in the opening week just to make it fun and also it could be a national game as well. Well we shall see what happens in roughly 13 hours when the schedule comes out.
A note about Philly game. It will be at Philly so it could give them a prime time game they do have their own divisional games that would be good picks along with Baltimore. One last prediction as I sit here, New Orleans gets zero home national TV games as a further punishment. I think Goodell is seriously upset with them and the fact that the NFLPA which has Brees and former NO player on their committee refused to give any recommendations for punishment will just be more salt in the wound.
