It's not just you. But who could have guessed these teams sucked the way they have? I was reading the Sporting News today and the writer was saying he doesn't envy ABC's and ESPN's PR people for having to promote this crap and longed for the Colts and Bengals.Originally Posted by macro
About the only thing you could do is set the schedule, leave the nights open and then select the night games a few weeks in advance. They could have put the San Diego Indy game on Monday night this week about a month ago. But I'm sure the networks will want these teams known in advance to sell advertising.
I'm guessing the Bengals are going to get a lot of love as far as night games go next year. They have a great offense, and a charisma machine in Chad Johnson. You can always have them play the Steelers in prime time and viewers shouldn't be disappointed. I'm guessing they will play the Colts so there's another potential shootout. Possibly the Patriots too.If they play NFC East teams next year there is a Carson-Eli showdown. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the Bengals will be a very attractive team to the networks for at least the next few years.
