    What do you guys think? Is this a good idea? I totally forgot the first week, and last night I didn't remember until halftime(although I think I would have been better off forgetting about last night's game completely). It's cool for fans to have a football game to look forward to in the middle of the week, but I think the competitive disadvantage/advantage created by the "4 days of rest/10 days of rest" dynamic created by the game outweighs the advantages of having a game on Thursday. Although with the Saturday games during the last two weeks of the year that gives us four days of football a week, which is just plain bizarre.

    It would be cool if more people could watch. The NFL network isn't available for me, so I don't really have an opinion.

    I'd be a much bigger fan if I could actually watch the freaking games.

    Bryant Gumbel makes Joe Theissman look like Howard Cosell.

    I've got the NFL Network, but the only time it comes on is for the Eisen/Mariucci/Deion postgame Sunday Night highlight show, only because Chris Berman makes me want to tear my ears off.

    Are you sure it's not your provider's fault?

    I don't watch the NFL network much at all, but I have noticed that its picture didn't look as good as the other stations we get. That would make me inclined to say it may have something to do with the network as opposed to the provider (although it doesnt rule it out)
