Damnit. The Football Gods are looking down upon Skins fans and laughing at the thought of us having to watch the Skins on National TV again. I was really looking forward to the run of 1pm games...

Re: Redskins vs Ravens moved to Sunday Night

I don't see how this is a big deal. Didn't we beat the Viks in primetime during our run?

And the Giants. I think Tripp was joking. Sarcasm Alert. I do hate the Sunday night games, though. Give me 1pm on Sunday any day.

I am already off on Monday, but now it looks like I need to take off on Tuesday as well.

Re: Redskins vs Ravens moved to Sunday Night

Seems like they would target the Philly-NYG game that week if they wanted to maximize ratings (given two very big media markets). Even with the Eagles struggling. I don't remember how many games Fox and CBS can protect, but I assume Fox would guard Dallas-Pittsburgh with their life. I'm going to hope PFT is wrong on this one.

Edit: Looking at the rules it looks like Fox can only protect one game per week. So they will obviously protect Dallas-Pittsburgh in Week 14. That leaves Philly-NYG and Washington-Baltimore as the most attractive games that week. Still holding out hope on the former until they announce it tomorrow.

Yeah, I've got tickets to that game... The move sucks! The last thing I want to do is be stuck in god damned Baltimore until midnight or later on a work night. I might have to call in sick on Monday.

I believe we beat the Bears on Thursday night.

I would think the story line of 2 rookie head coaches both trying for a playoff would win out over Eagles Giants. That one right now figures to be "non-competitive" and even after we blow out the Giants next week :cool-smil we would be the more attractive game the following week.
having said that, I agree with GTripps initial sarcasm.

Good news!! Especially for us "out of towners" . . . watching the skins on directv.com supercast just doesn't cut it.

Its time for the Skins to start playing better and shine on National TV anyway!!

I think Skins vs Ravens is more attractive to the entire population.

Re: Redskins vs Ravens moved to Sunday Night

With an 0-for record PT this year I would have much rather them move us to 4:15 Pats at 1 and the Boys/Steelers at night. That being said, Our defense will hold the Ravens to almost nothing so I am not too worried.

We've sucked in primetime this year. JC has sucked in PT this year. Maybe we're due, right?
