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



    When we win the Superbowl, the Thursday openner will be Green Bay at home against the Washington Redskins. The Baltimore Ravens will open on the road at Cleveland.

    Why? Because the NFL is just like that when it comes to scheduling the Ravens.

    They're trying to push NE/Bal as the new NE/Indy rivalry. I imagine we'd face them.

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

    Was there any actual specified reason why the Ravens didn't get the first MNF of the 2001 season?

    Or was it actually a case of the NFL just being down and out spiteful?

    IIRC, the game that took over on that first Monday Night game was NYG @ Denver. The Broncs wanted to unveil their new pleasure palace, and Pat Bowlen was the head of the Broadcast Committee at the time.

    Given that that game was played on 9/10/01, I sometimes wonder how many Giants fans can owe their lives to running late to work the next day.

    BS

    well in the spirit of getting ahead of ourselves i think it will and should be the Pats! I say that ratings wise but if any of those other opponents do some sexy things in the offseason via draft and or free agency it could be that team.
    PUT RAY RICE & REX RYAN BACK ON THIS TEAM NOW!
    (Notice: if this is now the future and this signature has become outdated because Ray Rice has signed with any of the following cities, Buf, Mia, Ne, Nyj, CIN, CLE, "PIT", Hou, Ind, Jac, Ten, Den, Kc, Oak, Sd, let the record show that I was never in favor of his release) This message has been brought to you in part by the R.R.R.R.

    The Steelers will probably struggle to be 8-8 again next season, though that wont be evident to everyone in week 1. I think the Packers would be the most interesting opponent.
