I'll be honest - I think the NFL has really overblown this NFL schedule release event. Yes, I'm very excited to see when the Dolphins will play their 16 games in 2009. And I'm especially interested in seeing how many, if any, prime time games the Dolphins will get. But having to release the schedule in prime time? And having a 2 hour television special for it? That's a bit much, don't you think. After all, we've known since December who the Dolphins will face in 2009. We just didn't know when.
But the NFL being the NFL, they have made this schedule release into a prime time event. The actual schedule will be released online at NFL.com at 7 pm eastern. Also at 7 pm, NFL Network will air a 2 hour special that will dissect and breakdown the schedule. I think that's a bit of overkill - but hey, football talk is football talk, I suppose.
Please use this thread for any and all discussion about the 2009 NFL schedule. Please do not make any additional fanposts about the schedule. All that will do is clog up the boards.
I won't be around at 7 pm when the schedule is released. But when I get home, I will do a front-page post that will list all 16 games as well as whatever random thoughts I have on the schedule. So there's no need to create a ton of other posts about the schedule. I will just delete them anyways - so don't bother wasting your time. If you want to share your thoughts on the Dolphins' 2009 schedule, do so either in this thread or in the comments of the front-page post I will make later on tonight.
Thanks for your cooperation!
