Bears-Colts Kickoff First Sunday of NBC's NFL Season

Monday, March 31, 2008

It was announced last week that the Redskins and Giants would be kicking off the NFL season on Thursday, September 4th, but the NFL announced today that the first Sunday Night game of the season will be the Chicago Bears at the Indianapolis Colts.

Why the felt the need to give us a rematch of the 2006 Super Bowl is beyond me, but Indy will be opening up Lucas Oil Stadium that night. I'll be adding the rest of Week One's game in this spot when released.

Even though I miss football a lot, I have no desire at all to watch that game.

I'd rather watch the Colts win 45-0 than watch a close game involving the Cowboys and be subjected to Romo/T.O./Jerry Jones/Jessica Simpson bullshit ANY DAY OF THE WEEK. Thank you, NBC.

What about Dallas???????????????????????????????? I thought the Networks loved them.

Anyway, I am sure that the Boys will be at home at 4:15 PM ET with Joe Buck and Troy (I Don't Disagree) Aikman>

When are they going to start hyping this game as the first time two African-American head coaches have faced each other to start the season?

Without quip, I'll just say the Bears usually bring in great ratings (comparatively). Should be a good start for NBC.

Now that Favre has retired, will Madden gush over Peyton Manning or Tom Brady? Maybe that's Simms' job
