The [URL="http://topics.dallasnews.com/topic/NFL"][COLOR=#0000ff]NFL[/COLOR][/URL] schedule should come out this week. Should. Nobody knows for sure, although I wouldn't expect anything today.
Normally the league releases the opening week primetime games and [URL="http://topics.dallasnews.com/topic/Thanksgiving"][COLOR=#0000ff]Thanksgiving[/COLOR][/URL] matchups from the Owners Meetings but that was delayed. Now the full schedule has been delayed just a little bit, too.

We've already guessed that the Cowboys would open the new stadium in the Meadowlands against the [URL="http://topics.dallasnews.com/topic/New_York_Giants"][COLOR=#0000ff]New York Giants[/COLOR][/URL] on NBC. [B]On [URL="http://topics.dallasnews.com/topic/ESPN"][COLOR=#0000ff]ESPN[/COLOR][/URL] Radio last week, [URL="http://topics.dallasnews.com/topic/Troy_Aikman"][COLOR=#0000ff]Troy Aikman[/COLOR][/URL] said rumblings are that the Cowboys would open the season at Washington for a late afternoon game on Fox with Aikman and [URL="http://topics.dallasnews.com/topic/Joe_Buck"][COLOR=#0000ff]Joe Buck[/COLOR][/URL] calling the action.[/B]

There seems to be some symmetry to the Giants-Cowboys being the Week 1 game because of last year's [URL="http://topics.dallasnews.com/topic/Cowboys_Stadium"][COLOR=#0000ff]Cowboys Stadium[/COLOR][/URL] opener and the Cowboys playing the first game at Giants Stadium.

Yeah I heard this last week... not sure if its true or not...

Can they just release the GD schedule already? Maybe its different for me because I'm out of town and will plan like my vacation days around this at times to go to games, but this is really starting to annoy the **** out of me. I dont get why its such a big secret. They already know who plays who...just let us know when the Skins are at home!!

:rant over:

Dang I was sure we would be opening at the NY(J) Giants! 2 years in a row and then we don't get to open their new stadium by finally beating their tail! Geez whoever does the scheduling ought to be fried!

I really just need to know the September games, so I can plan which games I'm going to.. adn waht weeks were on at 1pm and the Giants are primetime so I can plan my trip to Tampa to visit a friend who is a Giants fan....

Is that really too much to ask!?!?

Seriously... I mean how tough is it to write the schedule? How can it not be done yet?

I really want to apply for a job and be one of the schedule makers... I'm pretty sure with 30 beers and a few hours, I'd be able to hammer down a schedule that will break ratings records for all stations.

Ha, I dont know why I'm so bitter about this... maybe its just that I wanan get my time off in cause its tough sometimes to get days off here or what, but I'm really impatient with this.

You're saying my job's easy?! Granted, it's not my job anymore but still just a few things to consider:

-Contractual limitations and obligations
-Other programming obligations on the networks
-Event logistics (suppose there's an MLB game in Baltimore the same day as a home Ravens game and at the same time, how will that affect traffic patterns, or what if there's a concert scheduled in the stadium?)
-Franchise QB gets traded at the last minute before the schedule is set to be announced
-Traveling distance for teams and networks
