    So what happened to playing the Cowboys every year. I need a reason to go to that stadium I am paying for w/o buying "Cowboy" tickets.

    Good, now the players know when to cave in so they can miss 3/4ths of the preseason and all of the training camps! One step closer to an agreement!

    Hopefully when they release the regular season schedule it won't be as much of a farce as this thing is.

    I think this is the first time ever we have not played Tampa Bay in the preseason.

    That was the first thing I was looking for when the schedule was announced....thank goodness no more Bucs in the preseason....and gwallia I believe you are right.


    Looks like we are slashing our ties with the Cowboys this year, and moving towards more split practices/game with the Saints.

    I briefly tried to find that out and was unsuccessful. Could be your right. Strange.

    The Vikings preseason schedule had to have the 1st 2 games scheduled out of town because the roof repair of the Metrodome would not be complete. As I understand it, the contract calls for "substantial completion" by August 1. Many think that this "deadline" was a pipe dream. Others are skeptical that the contractors can produce a playable stadium before the opening day of the regular season. I read somewhere that the NFL had to force the Texans to play their last game in Minnesota, because other teams refused to schedule play in the Metrodome. The Texans may be presented with a last minute venue change. Who knows?

    I was looking forward to making that trip and seeing Jerry's Taj Mahal. Bummer.

    The Texans are the the NFL's step child.

    I guess I'll make this road trip, since I have family in the Bay Area and I won't have to pay for a hotel room. Just buy everyone tickets to the game. Shouldn't be too difficult, seeing it's the preseason.

    Not only have they played Tampa Bay every pre-season the Texans have ever had, it was always the last pre-season game.

    Now, if they can just get this lockout BS over with, I can start to get excited about August 15.
