Thursday Night Expansion
 
http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news;_yl...odell-schedule




I don't like the idea. Primetime games shouldn't have to be for everyone. Some teams don't deserve it. I'm sorry, its just my honest opinion. Nobody wants to see the Jaguars or Rams on TV.


And this is going to put teams more at risk of injury. 14 weeks where two teams will play on four days rest is just asking for trouble.

The Jaguars were on MNF three times this year I think. The Dolphins had two MNF games, too. So I don't really agree with that part of your argument b/c crappy teams get SNF and MNF games anyways.

I actually like it as a fan. One more night of NFL football. If I were a player or coach, I'd probably feel like you. But even though you have the short turnaround, after the game, you get a longer break until the next game, so it goes both ways.

They should just build the schedules to where, for instance, SF shouldn't play at NE on Sunday, then turn around and have a Thur night game in Buffalo 4 days later. They should make it travel-friendly for teams who have a Thur night game. For example, have SF play at Seattle on Sunday, then have a home game Thu night.

This is a great idea, more football the better.

I don't really view Thursday Night Football as true Primetime games...

it's only on NFL Network too...


Sunday Night, Monday Night, and Thanksgiving are the real primetime games

I preferred leaving weeknights other than Monday to the college game until their season ended.

Just seems the NFL would continue to extend that courtesy to their free farm system.

Hate Thursday night games. Especially if it's your team playing one because it's like a bye week until you get to see them again.
