    I'm actually looking forward to the Thurs. Night game for the first time since we played in it this week. Denver hosts SD. The Chargers are 6-7 and in the playoff hunt. They got after Manning a bit in their last game. I think that was the one he got hurt in. Also, have Melvin Ingram back. They can run and throw the ball. Have a decent defense. Doubt if they win. But, maybe a 38 yr old Gump isn't 100pct. If Denver wins this they have the 1st seed locked up. Finish at Houston and at Oakland.

    You ought to be back up here facing the elements like a man. But screw the damn party and go to Miami anyway.

    Edit: What are you beyatching about? It's only a four-hour drive to Miami from where you are. You can do both!

    Yeah, but doesn't the thought of PWP attending a Christmas party make you feel warm and fuzzy? ;)

    Nantz and Simms are calling the Pats game for just the third time this year, and that would have been the final time for the rest of the regular season had the game at Baltimore not been flexed out. That's the fewest times that CBS has sent their number one crew to do Patriot games since 2008, which was understandable since Matt Cassel drew a lot fewer fans around the country to television sets than Tom Brady did; that year they called a Pats game only once.

    Of course once the playoffs begin that doesn't mean Nantz and Simms will necessarily be announcing Pats games. All year long Denver has received the star treatment from CBS, and that will continue until they are eliminated. End result is that there has been more of CBS #2 team (Gumbel and Dierdorf) than usual this season.

    One other TV announcer trivia: this year may be the first ever that Joe Buck didn't handle a Patriots game. In inter-conference game the network that has the contract of the visiting team does the game, i.e, FOX for the NFC and CBS for the AFC. One home game versus the NFC was against Tampa Bay. so that didn't get the top crew from FOX. The other was against the Saints, but Buck was doing baseball playoffs so he was replaced.

    Another anomaly this week is that FOX has so many games Sunday (8) that they had to call in the reserves to help out. Justin Kutcher announces an NFL game for the first time ever.

    One last factoid that may be interesting to only me: the CBS station in Denver has gone with the Pats-Dolphins game rather than the KC-Oakland game. Normally you would go with a division game, but apparently they are far more interested in what happens with the #1 seed than wrapping up the division, and more interested in the Pats than their division rivals.

    Take a look at the map and tell me why Wash DC market gets screwed again this week. Baltimore and Richmond get the game and for some reason we have to watch Jets/Carolina.

    Nice, we get the only CBS announcer team that I don't hate. I don't mind Ian Eagle, but Dan Fouts bugs the **** out of me.

    Re: Week 15 TV Coverage

    The Redskins are playing early, so the CBS station in DC most likely wanted to take a late game rather than go head-to-head with the local team.


    For the Baltimore station it makes sense to show the NE-MIA game not because of the Patriots, but because the Ravens and Dolphins are competing for the last wild card spot.


    That sucks for a Pats fans like you, but I can understand the logic for those two stations.
