You heard it here first:

The Steelers' Dec. 9 game against the New England Patriots on Dec. 9 has been moved from 1 to 4:15 p.m. as part of the flexible scheduling the NFL employs after the 10th week of the season.
The flexibility in scheduling allows CBS and FOX to get better games in the late afternoon slots.

The Steelers-Patriots game in New England is shaping up to be a big one. The Patriots are 9-0 and could still be undefeated when the 6-2 Steelers visit them.

The game will be televised by CBS.

expect more of this patriot nut gobbling. yesterday they had their game against the bills moved to the primetime sunday night slot. the league just needs to get it over with now and move all patriot games to sunday night and all cowboy games to monday.

I guess CBS got to grab that game before NBC could move it to Sunday night. Definitely a late afternoon quality game.

If the Pats are 15-0 the Giants game to end the regular season is a Saturday night game on NFL Network that most viewers outside of New York & New england will not get.

Green Bay-Dallas also unavailable outside of local viewing areas to anyone not having NFL Network. NFL appears to be keeping its best product away from many viewers since the cable companies are not budging off requiring NFL Network to go on an extra cost sports tier.

NFL presumably wants 18-0 Pats going for perfection against Green Bay or Dallas in the SB. I could handle Pats-Favre but Pats-Dallas or Pats-Giants would be tough to watch - I rooted for Dallas against the Pats several weeks ago and felt soiled by the experience.

Did you catch Kornheiser & Jaworski making it a point to say as the halftime ceremonies ended last night how people across the nation like the Steelers and the 70s dynasty? I took that as a not particularly subtle shot that the NFL sees it has a problem with its current uber-team having such a hateful coach and increasingly bitchy QB and owner (who had the gall to whine about the "fake" crowd noise after all the crap that has gone down in Foxboro).

And I just realized that because of that Browns game (v. Jets), I will have the, um, pleasure of watching the one-win Jets instead of my Steelers. Are you KIDDING me???????? Oh, the unfairness of it all.....................

So the 4:15 game will be the "national" game on CBS? That means ANOTHER one that I will get to see... The Packers play at Noon and the Steelers will be on at 3 (central time)! The Viqueens play at 3, but on Fox. YAY!

I dunno - seems to me if the NFL brass had such a "problem" with the Arrogant Bastards, then Goodell would have meted out a punishment suitable to the crime instead of the slap on the wrist they got. They don't like it that pretty much every NFL fan outside of the NE area hates their guts and wants to see them go down in the worst way? Tough titty.

You sound like you're angry that we still have SF's #1 pick, which as it turns out is the 4th pick in Round One right now. Sorry about that.
That's all the NFL needs right now, the Pats with a top 5 pick.

he's right folks, not to mention, they could trade that one, and still get two late 1st round picks, a late first and a mid second and third (which would put them at like 100 picks in the first day), or atleast stock back up for next year (09').

A lot of people should start caring about how SF starts playing. The thought of a G. Dorsey, or Calais Campbell, Chris OR Jake Long, or they could trade down and add some depth to LB, ... connor, james. L, (so long Ted. B. and J. Seau). Either way, the patriots are set for years to come.

oh well, atleast stuff like this will always linger around this season http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3097057

Just keep patting yourself on the back, buddy. Yeah, my annoyance has nothing to do with Belicheat's screwing with the integrity of the game itself. You joined just to gloat about the 1st round pick you retained? The words of another 2001 bandwagon rider, if I ever read them. :coffee:

You also forgot that we have Oakland's 3rd round pick, which is the equivalent of a low-second rounder. A top 5 pick in round 1, a #2 and 2 - #3's (one being very high in round3). The rich just get richer.

Good luck on your trip to Foxboro as it stands right now, you will be our biggest test the rest of the way to perfection.

BTW, I'm no bandwagon guy believe me. I sat in those stands during the 2-14 seasons freezing my tail off. Been a fan since I was 7.

Sucks for me. If it would have stayed at 1, and I kind of knew it wouldn't, I could have gone.

Time for some of you guys to put on your big boy pants and head down to the sports bar. They have soft drinks in case you're scared your wife will find out you had a beer lol...... If you gotta work thats one thing, but theres no way I'm sitting at home to watch the Jets when the Stillers are playing.

Hubby and I will indeed be heading to our local sports bar in order to avoid the Jets-Browns. No way in the world I'll sit through THAT when I could be watching my Stillers!!

I am SO excited about this...

I am going to be able to watch the game with my buddies at the Black and Gold brigade in Louisville, as I graduate that weekend.

I am SO looking forward to this game, and this weekend!

I think having Steelers games at some time other than 1pm on Sunday is somehow contributing to global warming. But if I had to choose between a 4pm game or a Sunday/Monday night game, I would settle for 4pm.
