Godspeed, men of the 2nd Bn, 127th Infantry, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, Wisconsin Army National Guard! Victory in Iraq!

And it's Flash-tastic! (Or have the vanilla version.)

And fellow cheeshead W's...I give you the Packers' 2009 dance card. (Hmmm....3 primetime games, the earliest bye since 1999, but a mini-bye after the Turkey Day game in Motown. 3rd-easiest in the NFL, behind only the Vikes and Bears. Methinks the Lions over-figure in this equation.)

The Skins get to play the Rams, @ the Lions, Chiefs, and @ Raiders. Nice. Those SHOULD be 4 easy wins. Go 3-3 in the div and get 3 other wins and hopefully we can go 10-6.

The Ravens also get the Chiefs, the Lions, and @ Raiders; but they do get Indy, @ Pats, and of course the Steelers twice. 3 easy wins, maybe go 4-2 in the div and if they also go 10-6, I'd call it a good year.

I have Comcast. I have the NFL Network. Are there Comcast peeps who can't get it? I thought that was Time-Warner.

On-topic - the Pats' sked is pretty brutal but the Dolphins is worse, so I feel pretty good that the Pats should at least get the #4 seed as the AFC East Champ. I don't like four road games in the last six, but I DO like that those games are against New Orleans, Miami, Buffalo, and Houston.

One of your local stations should be broadcasting the NFL Network feed. That's what happens in Denver, at least.

I've poked around looking for the broadcast information on nfl.com and the Titan's website but couldn't find it.

They usually announce who's picking up the broadcast locally closer to the season, but someone will.

If you're not in the local market and watch via Comcast, it's looking like you won't be able to see the game regardless - NFL and Comcast are at an impasse on where NFLNetwork should be, and it'll be nowhere if they don't agree by the end of the month.

Sept 27: Indianapolis Colts @ Arizona Cardinals

There's just enough time left in summer for one more Michael Bay directed popcorn blockbuster on NBC. Expect scoring in the low-to-average college basketball range.

A Google search found a discussion on The506.com which says a Titans game on NFL Network would be carried on WKRN, the ABC affiliate. WKRN also airs the Titans preseason games that aren't nationally televised, so it would make sense that they would be the channel chosen for an NFLN game.

Aw fuck, I just watched an America's Game I'd recorded and got the "NFL Network will no longer be available on Comcast as of May 1."-scroll. Dammit.

We don't play the Patriots this year for a change?

I'd never call a win easy in the NFL. Who knows, the Chiefs, Rams, Raiders and Lions might have turnarounds next year(as long as the one in KC is I'll be happy). Look at what Atlanta and Miami did last year! Well, maybe not the Lions.

You talking Colts/Pats? 'Cause they play on 11/15 @ Indy.

Looks like all the AFC North and NFC North teams are getting their initial strength of schedule rankings thrown by playing the Lions. Pitt appears to have the 4th easiest schedule, but the Browns and Bengals x2 each have a lot to do with that.

It should be interesting to see Adrian Peterson possibly run for a rushing record on the first weekend.

I have Armstrong Cable and have the same problem with their "issues" with the NFL Network. This is bullshit that I can't see any of the games on there each week, yet everyone I know outside of my area have no problem being able to see the games with their cable companies.

Oy vey. (sports.espn.go.com)

No offense to the Jewish population, but come on already. As a Roman Catholic (well not a devout one, but still), I'm used to seeing sports on the TV all throughout Christmas and Easter, among other religious holidays. I don't see why the Jets must accomodate a certain population based on religion. Who knows how big or small population is of the whole that actually watches the game anyway? I would think that if you really are into your religion no matter what it may be, you can live without sports for one or two days. Or if you have to give up a ticket or seat at the game, you can do so without guilt. There's always another game you can attend or watch. Besides, this schedule is out well ahead of time so that poeple shouldn't already have tickets and have any conflicts with attending a game.









Citifield- where we have obstructed views so you don't have to see all the gory details of how our team chokes on it yet again.

Wait... there are 14 other games on the 20th and the 27th, but only the Jets are affected by the Jewish Holidays? What?

Does Jewish law allow someone to use a DVR or back in ancient times a VCR?

This seems stupid.

New York City has the second most Jews of any city in the world (behind Tel Aviv, Israel). In fact, the 2 million Jews in New York City account for 15% of the entire Jewish population of the world. Now, only about 25% of NYC's Jews are Orthodox, but that's still half a million people affected. The next largest Jewish population in an NFL city is apparently the 276,000 Jews living in Philadelphia.

The article says both the Giants and the Jets asked to be away during both holidays. The Giants are away, but the Jets are not.

The issue is not that the game is on Sunday, by the way. Jewish tradition has that a holiday starts at sunset. So in 2009, Rosh Hashanah goes from sunset on Saturday September 18th to sunset on Sunday September 20th. So the only way Orthodox Jews can attend the game would be if it was a Sunday night or Monday night game.

Yom Kippur, meanwhile, starts at sunset Sunday September 27th and goes to sunset Monday September 28th. So Orthodox Jews need to be back home by sunset on Sunday. It looks like this has already been fixed, because the article says the Jets have a 4:15 start time and NFL.com now says it's a 1:00 start time. That should be enough to get people home by sundown, which will be 6:44 that day.

Now, both holidays are days of rest. There is a list of 39 things that Jews are not allowed to do on days of rest. One of the important ones is that they are not allowed to light a fire. Many Orthodox Jews believe this applies to turning on a light as well. If you live in an Orthodox Jewish community, you can make money being their "Shabbat goy", or Sabbath non-Jew, who does the things that they are not allowed to do. Other things that a modern person might do that are not allowed on the Sabbath are cooking, tying, untying, "selecting", "applying the finishing touch", and moving things from one place to another. Filtering water so that you can drink it is considered selecting, as is picking bones from fish. As is sorting anything. Using a stapler on some pages is considered applying the finishing touch to it.

And I think they can program a DVR or VCR before-hand to tape the game so that they can watch it later. That seems alright. Hitting record as the game starts, however, is probably out.
