    I was already positive this would happen last week, but I thought MAYBE just MAYBE the win over Tennessee would change their minds over at KEYE.

    KEYE will show Tennessee/Pittsburgh over the Texans. Pretty much everywhere else in Texas will show Houston/Oakland.

    Previously, there was NO CHANCE the Texans would be on TV in the final week, because FOX only can show one game that day, and they would obviously choose Philly/Dallas ahead of Chicago/Houston... and Dallas will have gone over the "limit" of national games, thus could not be moved to the flex spot on Sunday Night Football.

    HOWEVER - if you read THIS ARTICLE on PFT, it looks like there's still a chance that Philly/Dallas can be flexed!

    So let's all HOPE that Philly/Dallas gets flexed to SNF, which would pave the way for there to be coverage of the Bears/Texans game in Austin on FOX!

    Can't say I'm surprised... Actually, I'm kinda surprised the map didn't turn out like the Pats/Colts game last year when only Houston metro had the Texans/Raiders game and Cleveland and Oakland was blacked out...

    Yeah, I knew this was coming all week. I will be at Pluckers this Sunday in RR to watch the Oakland and game and I will be in attendance for the Bear game, so that gets me through 2008. I will NOT miss seeing them play, no matter what.

    I hope Pittsburgh annihilates Tennessee.. Not just for the obvious reasons, but so that KEYE looks like the idjits they are.

    Go 56-0 Pittsburgh blowout of the Tinnbreds!!! Of course if it gets too out of hand Vincent may see some playing time which would cause that asshat at KEYE to get happy in his pants. :gun:

    Yes, it is on in SA this week... by weird chance, I'll be in Kerrville this weekend visiting some family, and they happen to be football fans, so looks like I'm getting lucky.

    Not sure, but I don't think you should be using "visiting some family" and "getting lucky" in the same comment. Not passing judgement...just saying.

    This is all because Austin wants to see Collins get injured and "The Man they call Vince" come in and play. Talk about man worship. You will watch a team all year just in case 1 guy gets off the bench.
