  1. They are still pretty reluctant to move a game unless it’s just a total and obvious dog. That becomes even less likely if the game includes one of the 4-5 top marquee draws like Cowboys, Steelers, etc.
  2. Actually, SNF games are rarely flexed. And SNF games involving Dallas are almost never flexed. That’s probably a case where both teams would have to be totally out of contention late in year.
  3. Sounds like at Buffalo week 3
  4. Well, the home/away is already determined so that WILL be how it shakes out.
  5. Here is my Mock: I think the league/networks are going to view us a "safe" bet this year in terms of national windows. I don't think we will be plastered on the national schedule, but we will make plenty of prominent appearances-- schedule boasts a lot of marquee franchises and we know that the NFCE games are always valued when making the schedule. I want to say the most I've ever gotten exactly right in a given year was 3 (exact date/time). I've also gotten some National Games correct here and there although not always in the right slot. Here goes: Sunday, September 12th: at Gian
  6. I am SUCH a fan of this signing. Mainly because it’s a very honest and transparent move for all parties. No one is force feeding Fitz as some sort of long term solution. No one saying we can now shelve the QB position beyond 2021. We know they took a legit shot at Stafford. I imagine they explored some other options that would have resulted in a more stable future at the position. But it didn’t come together. So rather than try and cram someone like Trubisky or Mariota or Darnold in there on the faint hope that there is still an elite player living in there, the team went with a know
  7. The first place schedule thing is vastly overrated. We have very little disadvantage on the schedule as opposed to say, Philly who finished last. All NFCE teams play the AFC West and NFC South next year— home/away is pretty determined in rotating basis. So 14 of the 16 (or 17) games on our schedule next year were locked in regardless of where we finished. The standings only determine 2 (and probably 3 now) games. We get the Seahawks at home and Packers on the road based on how we finished. But the Giants play the Rams and Cowboys play the Cardinals and Eagles play 49ers bas
  8. The home MNF thing is a little weird, but we’ve been fine in prime time every time the team has actually been good. The years where we’ve stunk, we’ve stunk in prime time too, which of course makes sense. 2020 make playoffs and won our prime time games. 2015 clinched division in primetime. 2012 the same. 2007 won three straight prime time games down stretch.
  9. This quote from Michael Wilbon (from many years ago) has always struck me and stuck with me. I believe it firmly. Something can be two things at once. We can acknowledge that the division was bad in 2020. We can acknowledge the fortunate circumstances that lead to a 7-9 division title. AND we can also acknowledge that the team made great strides this year and took advantage of an opportunity to build some real experience. We get a Saturday night prime time PLAYOFF game against Tom Brady. If you’re too busy being an Eeyore to get pumped about that then man, I feel bad f
  10. Somehow, even though I was only 2 and even though I obviously didn’t experience that game live, I still consider it a painful fan experience. This is weird, I know. But I just REALLY picture what it must have been like that day and how much it must have stung. And yes, I’m sure I would have been FURIOUS with the Cardinals for rolling over like that.
  11. I don’t think we were still alive going into the final week in 1985 or 1989. I know for sure we weren’t in 1989 because we played Seattle on a Saturday and played that game with no chance to make playoffs. I am almost positive the same was true in 1985 unless there was some sort of crazy machination of results we needed to get in. But I think we were already mathematically eliminated— 1985 was the one year where I am not 100% positive though.
  12. Here we are, and turns out, it’s a fairly unique position. Since our most memorable/infamous “win and in” moment in franchise history in 1979, we haven’t experienced truly meaningful week 17 (week 16 before the bye week was introduced) very often. Let’s start with that heartbreaking moment from long ago and examine the seasons where our playoff fate WAS decided the final week of the year. 1979: If you don’t know how this story ends, then to be perfectly honest, I’m not sure you can call yourself a diehard— you certainly can’t call yourself a student of the franchise, that’s for sure.
  13. No; if they lose and Rams win, LA would be the 5.
  14. Possible, but it would go against their stated objective and not creating any unequal scenarios where a team would know before a game starts what is needed. In the past, any games that are dependent on the outcome of another game have been played at same time to ensure equal motivation across board. Our scenario next week is the only “clean” scenario in the entire league. It also includes one team that’s already eliminated, so maybe they will stray a bit, but my guess is we get the nod- especially if Packers win this game tonight as it makes Bears-Packers a little less desirable.
