Nfl schedule release


Recommended Posts

With FA being very quiet and still a month until the draft I would like to make a post about one of my most exciting things about the NFL - the schedule release. Take away the games and the draft this is always the most interesting thing to me.  

I know what you are thinking. We already know who we are going to play, but not when. When is our bye? How many teams will we play coming from a bye? How many night games?

i think it was **** last year - hate the early bye. Schedule should be released 17th of April.

My prediction of late night games: 

A Saints game(thursday night) Green Bay, Eagles and the Steelers.

Home

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

New Orleans Saints

Carolina Panthers

New York Giants

Cincinnati Bengals

Dallas Cowboys

Arizona Cardinals

Baltimore Ravens

Away

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

New Orleans Saints

Carolina Panthers

Cleveland Browns

Philadelphia Eagles

Green Bay Packers

Washington Redskins

Pittsburgh Steelers

Still thinking THEY MIGHT have us open the Season in Philly. 

Wouldn’t be surprised as it is one of their biggest out of divisional home games against a(get ready for it)ratings drawing opponent.

Away at Phily, Pitt, or Green Bay are the more likely options. it will be either a rematch f the divisional playoffs, the top 2 wideouts battle it out with a side story of can Matt Ryan beat pittsburgh, or Can Aaron Godgers finally kick his habit of losing to Atlanta. They will probably want to start the season on thrusday with the previous super bowl winners at home with a worth opponent. So that is a possibility.

From what I’ve seen it’s all but a lock Vikings Philly for the opener. 

Although the Monday night double header could have us in it.

I am thinking they are going to want a high ratings game to kick off the season and we fit that bill.

I think it comes down to us or them and I would say the Falcons are a bigger draw, since offense brings in casual fans more often or at least that is what the league has shown. 

Unless they just make it a divisional game, which would suck! 

They also could build up the return of Deshaun Watson, that could be a big draw as well.

I don’t, I want them to have to face each other AND THEN have to come through us! 

I wouldn't hate that scenario, but I would just like the Falcons to prove to all of the "experts" that they deserve to be in the super bowl once they get there. Leave little chance to think that they had it easy. The top 5 teams in the NFC is the Eagles, Vikings, Rams, Falcons,and as much as I hate to say it, the Aints (:barf:) in no particular order. We will probably split the season series against the aints.

A lot of reports I've seen online have said that it'll be Minnesota against Philly.

Going 14-2, getting the #1 seed and hosting one of those two would do that trick as well.

Yeah, Thats why I want the vikings or eagles in the divisional, and the other in the NFCCG. Don't want the aints, because anything can happen in a regular season game, just imagine a playoff game.

Who are these Aints you speak of?? 

I know we call this team called the ‘Taints’ twice a year! :D

I remember a couple years back on this board I called them the Taints and a falcons fan of all people called all pissy that I called them the taints and kept saying it was childish. That isn't the reason I don't call them taints though, I just like aints more.

You are not gonna get me to say, “I like Taints better”! 

Lmao

And whoever that was, needs to get over themselves! This is a sporting event, not a debate on the national mall to solve world hunger!

Exactly, there are WAY WORSE things we could say about that town/fan base. 

Taints normally does not insight a fight, it regularly gets a clever chuckle and a comeback from Taint fans. 

And going back to that ‘fan’ that thought it was childish... 

Dude, we are on a message board talking about a child’s sport that grown men are playing and other grown ups are cheering them on in! Maybe it’s just me but...
