NBC Sunday Night Football

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by Still a Bulls fan, Sep 17, 2006.

  1. Just checked out the NFL schedule on NBC Sports' website and saw that there were NO Sunday games scheduled for the second half of the season. WTF? Am I missing something here? What was the whole point in bringing in Madden and Michaels if you're own going to show games half of the season?

    They get to choose good matchups -- 12 days in advance or something like that -- later in the season

    The NFL Network also gets games in the second half of the season
  4. Oh ok, that makes since. That will save us from watching another Oakland-Denver game that will be meaningless down the line, as Oakland will most likely be 1-10 or something.

    You can't. Only about 10 people in the US get NFL Network.

    I'm among the 10. They're getting better, but it's still a pretty disappointing product.

    With Michaels and Madden doing the Sunday night game, doesn't it feel like "Monday Night Football," as we've known it, never left? And without all the stupid gimmicks ABC fell into....so far.

    Except the vid clips of the players introducing themselves. Dumb gimmick. Why re-use it?

    The game broadcast seems mostly unchanged. However, I really enjoy the highlights show with Bob Costas, Sharpe, Collinsworth and Bettis.

    Hell, I'll take anything to avoid Sports Center's "NFL Blitz."

    Did you see Santana Moss. He just said: "Santana Moss ... The U"
    Of course if my school played as bad as they have the last two years, I'd be a little vague about where I matriculated.

    The Redskins really blow. I don't know who's more sad and pathetic hanging on, Brunell or Gibbs.
