DEAR Schedule Makers, thank you for not fucking my team over this year. Also, thank you for not putting all the division games at the end of the year, which has a way of making half the season irrelevant. Folks, in case you can’t tell, I really like this schedule.
We have a Week 10 Bye, where 14 days elapse between games. That gives our guys some time to let bruises heal, small sorenesses to alleviate and legs to freshen. This is GOOOOOOD, folks. Fresh legs and then a “Get Hype!” game against a division opponent. Oh, and did I mention it’s a road game, which means the pressure to win is mostly on the home team.
My favorite games are Week 1 and Week 17.
Week 17 has my two favorite teams being served up to me on Christmas Day. I get Football for Christmas, and no matter who wins, I get to smile about it. If there are playoff implications, then I likely get to watch a hell of a game to boot. I have to love that.
Week 1 has us going against a Redskins team that has had our number for a few years now. Not winning that game would say that, we still need to prove we’re better than last season’s team. No big deal since well duh… it would just be Week 1. A win however, says that we’re already better than last season, or that the Redskins are already worse. Either way, it still would put us over them in the standings.
This is a good schedule! It’s a fun schedule! I like this one! Can I take it home, Pa? Can I? Yeah. In case you didn’t get the hint, I really like this schedule.
