    Dan, the Giants are just too scared to open up with the Pack. ;)

    We need to find out who FUMBLED the ball. Could it be the commish? These 2 teams opening the season smells like a pile of manuer.

    It's a easy game to market no matter when they put it on tv.

    No complaints from me. I'd rather play in the last game of the season than the first.

    Good points.

    Didn't Dallas open last season's Sunday night schedule in that same stadium, Romoing to the Jets?
    Who do we root for in this one?

    We root for the Cowboys. Which is probably hopeless.

    I'm fine with it as long as the Packers vs Giants is still somewhere in the schedule.

    It just means the Cowboys will have the first loss before anybody else. I still hate the Cowboys more than the Giants.

    The league is afraid the Packers were going to make the New Jersey Giants their bitches in the opening game of the season, so they figured they'd go with this lame, but predictable matchup.

    Well since it ain't gonna be Packers vs G-String Men, who's left?
    Lambeau: The 49ers. Want to see how they do against A-Rod's former favorite team and in a "What if?" playoff scenario.
    Away: The Colts. Wanna see the Packers welcome Andrew Luck into the NFL.

    Who would you like to see the Pack take on for opening day?

    Lets see now that we have this game out of the way......

    We got Denver probably hosting SD IMO on MNF. Rivers said he wanted Peyton in the division and Peyton has always had issues with SD. Or Broncos at Pats for SNF.

    Could SNF be something Saints related with all their bounty drama?

    All I know is that the Colts better not get stuck going to Houston for the THIRD year in a row in opening weekend. Two back to back blowout losses there in recent years.

    The schedule makers have to start being more creative.

    Do I want to see Pats at the crap Dolphins again on MNF? No. Then we have a week of how Brady tore up that Dolphins D with ease.

    Let's be more creative this year, please.



    Early MNF game might be Jets and Pats now that I think of it. TEBOW.



    Or they may open with Peyton at Brady. Of course. But something has to be done with Tebow!!!!

    My guess is the Broncos will play Sunday night football against any number of marquee opponents on their schedule this season. Besides their division, they host the Steelers, Saints and Texans and they travel to Baltimore and New England. My guess is Patriots/Broncos for opening Sunday night.

    My guess is we'll see Green Bay play Monday night's early game, probably against the Bears. Chargers/Raiders I believe will be the late Monday night double header.

    Is there a Jets vs Broncos and a Broncos vs Colts scheduled at all this season?
    If so, any of those could be natl. broadcast games for opening wknd.

    The Colts do not play Peyton this year. He comes to Indy the season after though.

    The Broncos do not play the Jets either.

    The Colts play at the Jets though.

    I am wondering if they might save the Peyton/Brady game till later though. Then again it's been so long since we have seen Peyton play they might want to hype this baby up early.

    The Broncos WILL play prime time opening weekend. I would be astonished if they don't.

    Saints or 49ers, let's open it up against one of the other division champs, not something boring like a divisional game.
