    I don't understand why this game starts so early? It would make more sense for a 315 start at the earliest. It makes me upset that I'm going to miss the first half. Anyone else going to miss part of the game?

    Yeah, unless you guys are pastors and giving late afternoon sermons on Sunday, why the hell would you go to work, any job, and miss part of this game?

    That's preposterous and really you only should blame yourselves. Sundays are about church, family, and football and they don't get any bigger than this week. Except in 2 weeks.

    It's the day of the sabbath and by law, you shouldn't have to work due to religious reasons... this is one case where not only Muslims get to use that as their excuse for something.

    well i think its the 3 start time because last year the NFC had the later start time.

    not sure if that's how it works though.

    Not early enough for me. It's already killing me all week waiting for the game. I couldn't imagine having to wait until a night game!

    I agree Kitten,

    I've been the most excited for and nervous for this game over the other 2 playoff games so far. the wait has been a killer.

    Be careful of you receive text updates for scores during worship. One time I went to the afternoon worship that started around 1pm, just when the Eagles game started ( I was still a fan then). I got the scores and stats sent via text to my phone. It was around 1:35 or so when I got a text saying McNabb got a TD. Completely forgetting where I was, I screamed, "YES"!. The preacher stopped the sermon to stare at me, so I just yelled, "Thank God" and he thought I was feeling the spirit and commended me! The dude sitting next to me knew what I was doing and leaned over and whispered, "what's the score"? Ever since then, I make sure to turn my phone off if I'm at worship and the game is on.

    unless you have a d-bag for a boss and schedule maker, that for a week he has you off for this sunday, then changes it to where you have to work an 8 hour shift.
    stupid retail.
    i'll be watching monday due to this and no dvr.

    it alternates each year, just like the designated home team in the super bowl.

    Hospitality industry never closes, I have had miss so many games due to work. Luckily it turns out if you go to a job interview wearing a jersey and get hired they may understand how much Sunday's mean to you. True story.

    I was wondering why the odd hours too, but figure what the hell, glad its not a night game, remember the last night game and how that went for us.

    This, and because Fox has the superbowl this year and they broadcast for the NFC they get the early game, and cbs gets the more primetime slot.
