It's not just you, as many fans still don't have the network. But as time goes by, more & more fans will have access and the games on the NFL Network will gain popularity. Maybe, Bryant Gumball will have gotten the axe by then.

I think the primetime game that's really diminished is MNF. The games they've scheduled have been lame. And there's just something wrong with the production since ESPN has taken over (Tony Cornholio). I just can't put my finger on the problem (Tony Cornholio). Hopefully, the Sports Leader will find the problem (Tony Cornholio) and fix it (dump Tony Cornholio).

anytime i am able to watch the texans in HD, its awesome!

down in corpus christi we dont have local channels in HD yet, so i am having to purchase sunday ticket and hope its being broadcast in HD that week. it looks amazing so i dont mind a game on nfl network at all.

i voted for a game against the jags because we always seem to play them tough. we went 1-5 in our division last year with our single win being against jacksonville in week 17

they need to put wilbon or michael smith in the booth and kick tony to the curb. and jaws gets a little too excited for me with breaking down plays, so they ought to look for another analyst too.

I voted other and specifically am thinking Denver. I would love a chance to go to Invesco Field and cheer loudly for my Htown Texans in a student vs teacher II game. I might be one of the few Texans fans there, so I figure to get some TV time!!!

You don't like Jaws?! Man, I guess you want more onomatopoeias.

As a football fan, it gets really annoying listening to a football guys talk football. I'd much rather be talked down to like I'm a 5 year old that has never watched the sport before.

Anything prime time is good so we get a showing on UK TV for once. Ah for the TV quality of Denver again this year! We really need a 16-0 season purely to get a bit more coverage (****** the Superbowl, its all bout TV! )

Would like any divisional game, although my mates a Browns fan, so that'd be more fun...

Fortunately for our game versus the Broncos he was sick so Todd Hammonds filled in for him and did a good job.

I picked Tenn, but could see it being with Indy, Jax, or Pitt.

Possible opponents include the Bengals, Ravens, Steelers, Texans, Colts, Giants, Broncos, Jaguars, Titans, Eagles, Redskins, and Bills.



How many games do the Browns plan on hosting this year??

Well, we all know its all about TV ratings and size of viewership. So, given that, would it make more sense to have the Steelers, Colts, Giants or maybe even the Broncos before the Texans are even considered? I would love for us to get the game, particularly here, but I suspect that its a long shot hope. Although I'm more than a little surprised that it's the Browns as the given team.

Depends on who plays against the Lions.

Titans have history..but its history that not many people outside of Houston care about.

Pittsburg has more historic history, and are a playoff team, but Pittsburgh hasnt been in the limelight for a while so they dont strike me as the best choice.

Jacksonville has the most recent history..but we are talking about two teams who are not real big on a national scale.

I voted Indi. They are a division game so if you put it later in the season it could have playoff implications. Indi is a powerhouse team with a national audience, so they make sense as a Monday night game, and finally.. its a "david & goliath" scenario.. which gives national viewers and underdog to root for. Plus it would have the added benefit of firing up our guys.. their first monday night game, I have a feeling they would come out and want to impress people.

Seems im one of the few people that has this viewpoint though.

Having just slept a couple hours and now can not go back to sleep, got to ask, whose house am I crashing at so I can watch the game on NFLN, since I do not have it?

Also, one of the mods at NFLDC predicts that it'll be Houston Texans vs. Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving NFLN.
This would be bad for me, the A&M/Texas game is moving bak to Thanksgiving.

Yep, which makes no sense in my opinion as football fans in Texas would be expected to watch three games - UT/A&M, Cowboys and then the Texans. I do not see the NFLN doing this once they run the numbers.

I have a feeling we get Cinci in a prime time game this season. Given what's going on with the Bengals right now it would make no sense that they get a prime time game, which means it'd be a Monday Night game, but I just wanted to go on record.
