    While it's nice the Colts get this much attention I'd prefer the schedule remain the same. This put's the screws to folks who may work a night shift that planned on going and I also prefer they guys celebrate their victory or loss earlier. Doesn't sound like much, but that's an extra 6 or 7 hours to put it behind them or extra healing time.

    I love the Flex schedule. Allows people to see the games they want to see. I'm not sure why ESPN doesn't move more games to MNF that are decent.

    Nice !!.

    Should be a good matchup.

    Colts and Eagles this year are eerily similar statwise certainly on the offsensive side of the ball

    Why Not Us ?

    I don't think you're allowed to change Monday night games, b/c that's a different day. You can move an earlier Sunday game to a late Sunday game, but you can't move a Sunday game to Monday. it's weird how they explained it.

    Colts have been involved in NBC two highest rated games, CBS's highest rated game and Fox's highest rated game this season.

    As to why ESPN isn't changing their games, they can't, NBC is paying big money to have the NFL agree to give them a choice, even though CBS and Fox aren't too happy


    Pacers play at 1:00 that day, although it isn't on FSN, it is on NBATV - will that be blacked out here

    I like it as a sit-at-home fan, but for people going to the game is has to be rough.

    real rough, that brings to mind the letter that irsay sent out. starting later just gives people more time to get even more liquored up.

    I thought the networks also had a 'strike' (or protection) they could use on a game to keep it from being moved. But they only had a limited number of these 'protections'. If the Colts are generating high ratings then you'd think they'd use one here. But maybe they are keeping them in their back pocket for the last 1/4 of the season.

    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    Yeah they have a handful of games that can protect, but they have to mix it up. I believe CBS has protected the Colts/Jags game so that can't be flexed to Sunday night.

    Seriously.

    Now that McNabb tore his ACL, this game should be a joke for the Colts.

    Yeah this is funny. Not only did McNabb tear his ACL, but the Colts lost so there isn't the undefeated story either.
