    I hope the league (and networks?) do a better job with balancing these games. Meaning: I’ve seen in past years a team go 10 days between games, then just a 4 day turnaround to the next one……if you play on a Monday, next game should be Sunday. if you play on Thursday, your next game should be on a Friday, etc…..

    Ridiculous that the NFL makes you wait clear into mid April to announce the games for the upcoming season. It makes it hard to plan an away trip. If they already know way in advance then why make the public wait? Can anyone shed some light on to the waiting game?

      The NFL always releases the schedule in mid-April. I believe setting the games for television is what takes so long. Plus NFL teams try to schedule around other events, such as MLB games or other events at their home venues.

    I agree. I’m sure that they already know the schedules, so why don’t they let the fans know

    These are preseason games. Nobody cares when they are played. They don’t matter.

      Sam for those that live in igloo land (Canada) and travel over the boarder to catch an NFL game, it very much matters as to the dates of the games. Dah; obviously anybody travelling to catch a game appreciates the schedules — the sooner the better.

    I am a HUGE Seattle Seahawk fan, and I am ready to see their schedule. I am so excited at the momentum we had going last year and I have a good feeling this year will be even better. It is always great to see the schedule as far in advance as possible to plan going to a game or weekend get together’s themed to the game. Go Seattle!

    Sam even though these games don’t matter for Season Ticket holders, Every game matters. =)

    I’m a 65-year old handicapped woman and football is my passion!! I go into withdrawals after the pro-bowl and only begin to come out in July when more and more news begins to come out about football. August and pre-season doesn’t come soon enough. I follow games using redzone, the most fun way to watch and keep up with all the games on Sunday. College football feeds me on Saturday. I’m from Georgia but love me some gators and Boise State!

    I can see making the last game on a Thursday night. First they have to make their final cuts to fifty three guys or whatever the roster limit is. Then, Monday, they have to begin game-planning for the first regular-season opponent. And the two teams playing Thusday night have to begin that game-planning that much sooner.

    There is almost no game-planning in the preseason, so ‘unbalancing’ the schedule is more acceptable.
