Cowboys at Redskins in Season Opener?

Cowboys at Redskins in season opener?

The NFL 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 Thanksgiving 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 New York Giants on NBC. On ESPN Radio last week, Troy Aikman said rumblings are that the Cowboys would open the season at Washington for a late afternoon game on Fox with Aikman and Joe Buck calling the action.

There seems to be some symmetry to the Giants-Cowboys being the Week 1 game because of last year's Cowboys Stadium opener and the Cowboys playing the first game at Giants Stadium.

Re: Cowboys at Redskins in Season Opener?

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:

Respectable!

Re: Cowboys at Redskins in Season Opener?

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

Did you actually used to write it? lol... I'm so confused now.

No I know, I'm being a little rediculous... but I mean they know there is a ton that goes into it...but I think what really irritates me about it is that the NFL keeps it as some like huge secret. I mean we already know who and where we're playing, should it really be a big deal as so when. Even if they just release the dates that we'll be home, it would just be a lot easier to plan... and I just hate how its been pushed back and the Week 1 Primetimes werent released this year....

I'm just beeing needy lol. Maybe its because I overslept this morning.

And just tell me when its gonna be released, if its gonna be next Monday, then fine. Just let me know so I'm not refreshing PFT/TWP and NFL.com 800 times a day.
