Football television scheduling

What are they smoking? For the second week in a row, we get the Dallas Cowboys on national TV. They're not a very good team, and these games aren't really important to the leagues playoff picture. The only thing I can think of is that it's the "Parcell's Factor". I don't like the Cowboys, I don't like Parcells, and as we've beeen repeatedly reminded, it takes his teams three years to get good, yet this is only his first season as coach.

It's been really sad this year. Bears vs Packers. Ok, you expect the Pack to be reasonably decent, but nobody thought the Bears were going to be any good. Just because it's a rivalry doesn't mean anyone who isn't a fan of those two teams wants to watch the carnage. Or comedy. Like I said: sad.

Why not Raiders vs Lions? There's an epic for you. I'm a Raiders fanatic, but unless they pull their collective heads out it's going to be a long and painful season for me.

Maybe I'll just do yardwork today. :D

Well, I hate the Cowboys as much as any red-blooded American, but the NFC-based schedule is a little thin. Plus, Emmitt Smith homecoming, etc. etc.

My problem is too many good AFC games. I wanted to see the Titans/Patriots, but a battle of 4-0s (Broncos/Chiefs) is on at the same time.

Yeah, the game was very sad. But then, my beloved NFC has become a joke. The Redskins looked horrible, almost recovered, and then blew what looked like an easy 2 pt conversion that would have made the game exciting. It's anemic, I tell you! :)

WTF? The cowboys are a major playoff contender and they lead the NFL in offense!

Change the bong water Ted! They are running wild like the Mongol Hoardes!

Due respect Paul, but double up on the No-Doze. The Cowboys haven't played anybody worth mentioning yet. It's like the mighty Redskins leading the NFC east, they're feasting on even weaker teams. The Skins and Cowboys will each go 9-7 this year. Maybe.

Another blaspheming, non-believer.

We know *you* are, Paul, but what is Ted?

Ted is a Raider fan, and there ain't no cure.
