I'd actually prefer the Sunday and Monday night games to start early. We do not need NBC to have two pre-game shows, both of which suck. Start pre-game at 7pm and the actually kick-off at 8pm. Some of us actually have work in the morning on the East Coast and parts of the Mid-West.

Carolina only plays division rivals on consecutive weeks for the first 2 games of the season. That's unusual; the seasons typically end with a streak of division games. This year, the division rivals will be played every third week starting in November.

For sure, but that was one contract negotiation ago; they re-upped earlier this year for the same shit sandwich. (The new contract does allow for playoffs, but my understanding is that that triggers a gigantic further payment from ESPN.)
