The last place New Orleans Saints have TWO MNF games this year, and both are home games.  This last place team also has a prime time Saturday night game as well.   Meanwhile, the Bucs play every single game at 1:00pm on Sunday.  We dont have any back to back home games, and we have 3 weeks in between home games on three different occasions.   How exciting! 

If anyone is curious, Carolina has two prime time 8pm games.  Atlanta has one MNF and another prime time 8pm game.

The Saints have an explosive offense made for primetime and the Bucs are going to suck based on popular opinion, and there's no arguing on that.

Offense sells TV ads.

its a catch-22...   we cant get any star players because we rarely play in prime time (which also hurts national fan base), and we aren't in prime time because we dont have any star players.     What came first, the chicken or the egg?

Star players are available in the draft every year. They can't control what team picks them.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

Exactly.  Who are they?   A bunch of mediocre guys.

Don't kid yourself.  Neither of them have the same mass recognition as Breese and Bush.

YEAH, mediocre. One guy rushed for 1000 yards last year and had the highest YPC. Other guy is a top 5 TE, and Bryant only had 1200 yards and had 200 yards and two TDs on national TV last year. No ones, you guys are getting so desperate it isn't even funny

This year has been an improvement in signing names.   We faield at Haynesworth, Cutler and others...  but we did get some second tier guys like Winslow and Ward.   Id like to see Bryant put two seasons together before he's labeled a super star.

Every Bucs game is exciting for me. Generally speaking, from a logistics standpoint, most coaches don't like Monday night games, they prefer consistency throughout the schedule.

I like the schedule, especially having all 1:00 home games.

What other 9-7 team from last year does not have a prime time game?
The Bucs got hosed, pure and simple. DISRESPECTED AGAIN, by the NFL schedule makers.



The BUCS are gonna surprise people this year!

Im more pissed that a LAST place team like New Orleans gets 2 MNF games and a prime time saturday night game.   Who the F are the New Orleans Saints?   What have they done as a franchise EVER?
