    Re: Thur Night Opener - Who do you want to play?

    The Steelers would be great, but I think that past history shows that it would have to be the Patriots. They love post season rematches, and they like to think that we have a little rivalry going. I guess that the Cowboys/Giants game could be an argument for doing the Ravens/Steelers, but that week 17 game between them pretty much was a play-off game.

    I'd say Patriots, since the Steelers are obviously going to be a Monday or Sunday Night game anyways.

    It will be the Pats I think, they like to have conference game rematches usually, Pit is a good shot too, GB is the dark horse. I'm so bored of the big games with Pit and NE, so I'd really really like to see a more unique opponent here for once and play GB.

    Steelers...almost no bigger draw than a Ravens Steelers game for ratings.

    I think the Pats will be number 1 option, GB #2, Houston #3, Pittsburgh #4. I doubt the give the Ravens/Steelers as an opener @Baltimore 2 of 3 years.

    If we win, the favorites have got to be either NE or Pittsburgh. Houston and Green Bay are less likely options, IMO.

    Can't happen. If the Orioles played in the afternoon the parking lots might not clear in time. In fact it could be lots of extra innings and the teams could be playing at the same time, which would be a HUGE cluster.

    If any team played first it would be the Ravens since regular season NFL games are limited to one overtime, and I don't really see that happening because of logistics.

    We won't get a Thursday opener in any case, the Orioles are already scheduled for a home game on 9/5 and 9/12.

    Wow...you are right.

    Opening Thursday is September 5th. Orioles scheduled to be at home versus the White Sox.

    I know we are ahead of ourselves here....but I wonder if the NFL could get the MLB to make a schedule adjustment?

    Not the Bengals. You guys are unmerciful in home night games.

    Re: Thur Night Opener - Who do you want to play?

    It's almost all about ratings and what the most attractive possible game on opening Thursday night. My guess is it's one of these four - in order from most likely to least likely - New England, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Houston. I say New England first because it's becoming the new "it" rivalry in the NFL. Green Bay slightly over Pittsburgh because I think (althought I'm not sure) that the Ravens have some input and I doubt the Ravens want to open with a divisional game if they choose something else. Cincinnati or Minnesota wouldn't produce the ratings the networks want, even though they're both playoff teams. The Jets would get the desired NYC ratings but they stink so they're out. You can surely forget about Cleveland.

    Re: Thur Night Opener - Who do you want to play?

    This year they opened on a Wednesday in deference to Obama's keynote speech at the DNC convention, so they might move it to 9/4. Other than that we will NOT be hosting any opening night here.

    As for the Orioles rescheduling, maybe. But keep in mind they would then have to monkey with the White Sox schedule and once that is done any team that monkeying messes with, etc. It could get complicated.

    I think our only real shot is a Wednesday opener.

    What do you mean? We pulled our starters 3/4 of the way through.

    New England would be the "no brainer" here.. especially after all the drama that went along with the game and the words exchanged afterwards.

    Even if by chance we don't win the SB, I still think we open in prime time on SNF and again, it'll most likely be the Pats.
