As usual, I turned out to be wrong...

Nope, no Seahawks @ Cards matchup on MNF in week one, as I predicted a while back... The Raiders not only get to open the season in Prime-Time again, but they also get a Thanksgiving Day game at Dallas. Why?

Here's the week one national games, plus the Thanksgiving Day line-up:

Thursday Sept. 10 (NBC): Titans @ Steelers
Sunday Sept. 13 (NBC): Bears @ Packers
Monday Sept. 14 (ESPN): Bills @ Patriots
Monday Sept. 14 (ESPN): Chargers @ Raiders
Thursday Nov. 26 (FOX): Packers @ Lions
Thursday Nov. 26 (CBS): Raiders @ Cowboys
Thursday Nov. 26 (NFLN): Giants @ Broncos

Also, John Clayton has a story about the NFL considering changing the scheduling formula so east-coast teams won't have to make so many trips to the west coast... As a fan of the team that annually logs more miles of air travel than anyone else, let me be the first to say: Boo. Fucking. Hoo.

Anyway, as usual the NFC West gets no respect. Big shock, huh? It's not like we've represented the NFC in two of the last four Super Bowls or anything.

Allow me to be the first to say that those network-TV douchers can suck my balls.

I hope to God that the Sunday Ticket is in my future this year. I need to avoid being force-fed Dallas-Washington, Dallas-Philadelphia, and all the other so-called 'must watch' games every week. Suck it. I'd rather watch Texans-Bengals.

Oh, and by the way: not playing Dallas on Turkey-Day is a good thing. One less screwed up practice schedule and short week scenario. Plus, do you really want to hear Joe Buck sucking the collective Cowboy cock for 3 1/2 hours?
